A cookie is a micro program that sends communicates with the originating site; allowing a custom-type configuration and can tell the site software when you visited last. To my knowledge, there are no cookies that can give, say, TFL your total browsing habits. Further, if you are afraid of them, learn how to configure your browser to not accept them...kind of like shooting safety...i.e. learn what you are doing. In Netscape: click edit; Preferences; disable all cookies.

Now if this is too difficult you have no business having a firearm either
