Am I the only one, or is anyone else noticing that ad-aware is detecing ECN's cookies as a tracking cookie? I notice it everytime I scan yet I tell AAW to ignore it each time. Any ideas?

I think that all forums use tracking cookies to be able to indicate what posts are new since your last visit.

Yes, the cookies on forums typically keep track of the last posts you read, settings such as how many days of past messages to display, and similar things.

Nothing sinister!

Not to mention not having to sign in with every visit.

BTW Paul,
The Cookie Monster has cleaned up his ways.
He now eats "healthy" foods, like lettuce and spinach and all the other things we hated as kids, (and to a degree as adults as well)
And not at gluttonous rates like he used to.
Good Lord, what's happened to us all??.
You'd never see me being a vegetarian.
