I did an audit of AMO WebTrends tags by scanning ~15,000 pages and this is what was returned:

* NoScript WT tag: dcso6de4r0000082npfcmh4rf_4b1e
* JavaScript tag: dcsis0ifv10000gg3ag82u4rf_7b1e

In the WebTrends admin:

DCSID dcso6de4r0000082npfcmh4rf_4b1e = getpersonas
DCSID dcsis0ifv10000gg3ag82u4rf_7b1e = Mozilla.org

While there should have been a new datasource created for AMO, we can use the Mozilla.org one without a problem since there is a unique AMO hit filter.

What is the problem?

The JavaScript and NoScript tags should be the same and AMO is using the getpersonas.com NoScript tag, which was probably a copy/paste problem from long ago. There were a number of templates on Mozilla.org that had the same problem.

</noscript>

dcso6de4r0000082npfcmh4rf_4b1e should be changed to dcsis0ifv10000gg3ag82u4rf_7b1e.

This bug just means that if someone has JavaScript disabled, hits to AMO are being sent to the getpersonas.org datasource.

This is fine because webtrends is no longer used. :)
