    Hey,

    Ghostery warns me of a tracker cookie named 'Quantcast' since I installed this plugin.
    Is there a way I can disable quantcast from Jetpack?

    Quantcast is for tracking stats. You should not disable it.

    Yeah, tracking stats for advertisers.... I don't want to expose my visitors to tracking for advertising means. Quantcast is not necessary for the workings of this plugin beside providing revenue for WordPress/Automattic

    "Quantcast measures and organizes the world's audiences in real-time so advertisers can buy, sell and connect with the people who matter most to them. Used by the top 10 media agencies, the world's largest brands and more than half of the top advertising supported publishers, Quantcast connects the planning, buying, and media fulfillment processes, delivering the marketplace's most consistent and accountable audiences."

    First, thank you for your feedback. I did research this and I've found that we do want to keep the Quantcast stat and we don't support removing it. You can also see a related discussion about it in the main WordPress.org forum where Matt has commented about this issue: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpresscom-stats-quantserve-code-in-stats-javascript?replies=18
