It slows down the page load time quite considerably plus I do not have the plusone feature on my site.

There is a bit of code in the HTML

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.j...lt;/script>

that I have tried to remove numerous times but it keeps reinserting itself.
Is there a way to code such that it does not try to load it? It appears the simple delete method does not work.

Thanks
