The script goes something like:
<IMG"+ " BORDER=0 width=1 height=1 SRC=\"http://c2.thecounter.com/id=1412"+r+"\"><\/A></SPAN>")}
<NOSCRIPT><A HREF="http://www.TheCounter.com" TARGET="_top"><IMG SRC="http://c2.thecounter.com/id=1412" ALT="TC" BORDER=0></A>
Some say its the spiders but most spiders wouldn't request the image in the <noscript>, would they?
Most spiders don't request images, unless indexing images in particular.
