Heads up people!

I was running SpyBot and it detected two forms of Spyware that load themselves to a readers' system when I first got on the DD page! It also tried to load on each and every comic page I opened thereafter!

The two Spyware in question were FastClick and DoubleClick.

I don't like the idea of my site giving my readers more unwanted crap on their system…they read my strip to have a laugh, not a possible virus!

Please remedy this guys, or at least explain it!

Does this answer it? Not sure, though spybot does find cookies too, and (sometimes) classifies them as spyware…

It's just a cookie… i wouldnt' consider it spyware. It's generally used to make sure that you only get one pop under every 12 hours…

FastClick and DoubleClick are the servers of the ads. They are an ad provider, not spyware.
