Google analytics opt-out with gaoptoutaddon_1.0.8.xpi – why not on AMO?

If gaoptoutaddon_1.0.8.xpi were on AMO, it sure would be a smash hit. It saves a lot of privacy-intrusion and unnecessary computation. It also is pretty small and simple JS code, like 30 lines or so.

So why is it not on AMO ? Is there a license problem which cannot be overcome?

Certainly millions of users would like to get rid of those obnoxious “analytics”, so–called!

  • What? I want my every click be “analysed” by a large Corporation! no opt-out for me!

As Jefferson said, Google is the one who needs to submit the addon, you should (try to) contact their support.
