The Journal mischaracterizes what happened and why. We used known Safari functionality to provide features that signed-in Google users had enabled.
So if you're signed in your privacy settings on non-google properties are null and void, nice.
I bet half of adsense users don't even know they are signed in to Google by just checking their account. They probably think that leaving the site logs them out (it should, but doesn't).
