I also used below websites to check the cookies on this forum.

Skyroadster.com uses 118 cookies - Cookie-checker.com

Ok, now I am back to reading all those interesting thread in this domain.
Most interesting, I find what you posted most interesting..
I'm gonna look closer at what cookies are getting thrown down our throats here and where ever I go on the w.ww. I myself have a cleaner program that deletes all cookies (and other crap) I don't protect routinely ..
Thanks for the post and info..

Actually it does. In fact a rather detail list can be selected by going to options >> privacy >> then "remove individual cookies".. it even tells you when the cookies "expires" and details about it. You are correct however, once you sign on the skyroadster, OR refresh the page it loads a ton of cookies..
In my options, I have 3 option settings one of which one is called "Tell sites that I DO NOT want to be tracked", donno what good that'll do..cause each website you visit will crap into your cookies collector..

Thanks for the update, did not know that. A But still think you are wrong.

It certainly shows how the owners of this website are making their money and B how serious they take our privacy :-(
On A above you are more than welcome to D/L the software and check it out for yourself.. Here>>> https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/

As for item B above, I totally agree, but remember protecting your privacy on the www is really your responsibility really, you know those guys want to know everything about us (you and I), I do everything I can in my power to block those suckers, and I believe I do a dam good job at it to be honest about it.. In fact I appreciated you starting this thread, because afterwards I tweaked my settings to fight back..thanks!
so at least for me it was not a waste of time or this very much informational thread....
