In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

FYI Ghotery does nothing to stop Google getting referrers though ajax.googleapis.com and in fact their support staff are either rude or brush off this as a threat (it has been brought up many times on their forums).
e.g.

https://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/topics/http_ajax_googleapis_com...

If you do care about this then use something like RefControl for Firefox and tell it to block 3rd party referrers by default.
