Thumbs down Tracking cookies

Hi, For over two years now I have used a nifty little Firefox addon called DoNotTrack, and it has been brilliant,
I've only found two sites which won't allow me on without allowing tracking cookies: Google and Facebook,
I don't use Facebook and whenever I use Google mail I close it afterwards to stop them from tracking me
It's not that I have anything to hide, I just think it's wrong that anyone who wants to can track my
movements and store, use or sell my information to anyone willing to pay for it!

I've noticed that over the last few days Birdforum has worryingly, started using Google Analytics to track it's users
and DoNotTrack doesn't seem to be able to automatically stop it, though I can manually turn tracking off

Why has Birdforum done this?
