The pages causing me problems are subscription access only requiring login, and only when images are displayed.

This is definately not an F/P. There's absolutely no reason they should be contacting information.com servers;


It appears, from your screenshot, to be being caused by the following domain;


Given this IP is a parking server, I can see no reason why they should be accessing it.
