You're wrong. There are measures within your browser to help you prevent this, so imposing it on everyone is stupidity.
From inside sources (people I know who work in hog confinements) I've been informed that over 90% of hog confinements in Iowa are infected with H1N1 virus. They do everything they can to keep it from incubating to human transmittable. We're so screwed and hardly anyone even knows how bad its getting.
Trust me, when the zhit hits the fan, it will be so quick nobody will have time to react to it. The only ones who will survive it will be people who have been exposed to it enough to build an immunity and most likely carriers.
Thanks for the info. I knew about cookie preferences in browsers (which are a pain in the ass to turn on and use), but I wasn't aware of the Cookie Monster plugin for Firefox. I'll have to play around with that one... thanks.
BTW, I totally agree with your philosophy on "newb laws." If you're not smart enough to protect yourself on the internet, that's your fault.
