how to remove b.scorecardresearch.com

I have repeatedly had to remove their persistent cookies. they have really slowed down general internet traffic recording everything. Even text typing is slowed tremendously.

after searching for some answers, there pretty much were only 2: 1) go to their website and opt out (http://www.scorecardresearch.com/Priv.html), and the opt-out is buried in a large page of text (i ctrl-f'd to find it) and 2) get some kind of cookie/script controller addon. i used firefox's NoScript addon, but that is REALLY comprehensive and disables all kinds of abilities to watch videos or view pictures, etc.--you have to constantly allow things either permanently or temporarily.

Generally I wanted to not have to opt-out, but instead just block it. The only problem I had with NoScript is that on occasion I would temporarily allow a site like ebay to operate and scorecardresearch made its way back.

Now I have opted out and I hope it stays that way, but my question is ... does anyone know of another way to prevent this turd of a research company from getting on your computer that doesnt require their opt-out or high maintenance efforts like NoScript?

thanks for any help.
