THAT IS ALOT OF COOKIES. I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY I GET BUT I HAVE A VIRUS SYSTEM IN MY COMPUTER TO AND I ALSO SCAN AND THEN I DELETE HISTORY, COOKIES AND TEMP FILES EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I CUT OFF MY COMPUTER. THAT IS THE LAST THING THAT I DO AFTER I FINISH MY SITES AND I DO ALL THIS RIGHT BEFORE I CUT MY COMPUTER OFF.
Yes it is annoying but there are some good reasons for tracking. I have anylitic software that lets me know what categories are the most popular on my site. It doesn't give me any personally identifying information. I guess it is one of those things that can be used for good or evil purposes.
I know that lots of the "bad" trackers are the ones from Google and other advertisers so that they can target adverts to you based on your surfing history. Creepy, yet I like that I don't get ads that are totally irrelevant.
