So... Alltheweb and Yahoo? I just read the fine print bottommost on Alltheweb.com
We work with Yahoo! to research certain usage and activities on its and our website. Yahoo! uses web beacons to conduct this research. The information collected through these web beacons is used to find out more about our users, for more accurate reporting, and to improve the effectiveness of our marketing.

No personally identifiable information about you is shared by Yahoo! with us as a result of this research. If you prefer that Yahoo! not use information collected by these web beacons on our website, please visit Yahoo! [privacy.yahoo.com...] in order to opt out.
AFAIK, the current speculation is that they will switch to inktomi, isn't it?
Of course this can also just be taken literally - ATW will still be standalone, only they will now use webbugs for measurement and you must go to Yahoo to opt out...Any thoughts?
