Is:
(function() {
// https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/
var noopfn = function() {
;
};
var noopnullfn = function() {
return null;
};
//
var Tracker = function() {
;
};
var p = Tracker.prototype;
p.get = noopfn;
p.set = noopfn;
p.send = noopfn;
//
var gaName = window.GoogleAnalyticsObject || 'ga';
var ga = function() {
var len = arguments.length;
if ( len === 0 ) {
return;
}
var f = arguments[len-1];
if ( typeof f !== 'object' || f === null || typeof f.hitCallback !== 'function' ) {
return;
}
try {
f.hitCallback();
} catch (ex) {
}
};
ga.create = function() {
return new Tracker();
};
ga.getByName = noopnullfn;
ga.getAll = function() {
return [];
};
ga.remove = noopfn;
window[gaName] = ga;
})();


Like it? Hate it?

It does not matter. It is there!
