    I little not understand one thing here.

    Why one of biggest black hat SEO forums giving away all members ip's to google SPAM team ?

    Google can run one small script to match google analytics / webmaster tools users ip's with this forum ip's and VUALIA ! All spammers filtered.

    I don't even talk about other things....

    What do you think ?

    If you're that paranoid you will be using a proxy or VPN then won't you?

    I understand that since you are a beginner you think that google is GOD,but it is not how it works.

    You need to know the dark side of the force..

    just block analytics with adblock plus, even your browsing experience will be much more satisfying because analytics slows down the loading speed of particular websites significantly (for example i experienced much more faster loading on twitter w/o analytics)

    if google wanted to they could deindex every single page of this entire site from their serps.

    evidently they don't want to.

    Use the Firefox Add-on Ghostery, it protects you from ALL tracking programs.
