    With JavaScript enabled.

    3rd party cookies BLOCKED, 1st party cookies set to "Always Ask", except for those I have decided to trust and therefore added to my Exceptions list.

    (in Firefox, network.cookie.cookieBehavior set to 1)

    I also *only* allow session cookies on sites I have come to trust.

    I primarily avoid sites that go overboard with the cookies, unless absolutely necessary.

    At this site, on the entry page from that link, I had to click "Deny" 71 times before I could close the page.

    Added in edit:

    I probably should have said 71 attempts to set cookies.

    If I had "Accepted" them, there might have been a final total less than 71.

    This is one of the dozens of reasons I came to like The Windows Club.

    I was not blasted with an overwhelming mess of cookie requests when I first visited the site a long, long time ago.

    Anyway, this is getting off-topic, so 'nuff said.
