Clipboard spam

Talking to friends in IRC just now, someone pasted content from the SF Gate which had a Read More link attached that wasn’t in the original page. I went to the page and couldn’t replicate that behavior. A little digging revealed that a Tynt script attaches an oncopy event handler that puts that extra crap in, and that the Ghostery Firefox extension was blocking Tynt on my own machine. Thanks, Ghostery!
