The b*****ds get only one crack at trying to put a cookie on my computer; when they try, IE pops up a notification. Unless it's a cookie I need, it gets permanently blocked and I don't get bothered by it anymore. Eventually, I get very few notifications unless I go to a fairly new site. IE does a good job of blocking all but supercookies. SAS catches one or two of them when I run my weekly scan. Even though SAS says they aren't dangerous, I dump them anyway. If the same site keeps putting supercookies on my computer, I just eschew it. IMDB is the worst site for that and if it's the only one that can give me info I need, I just run a quick one day scan in SAS to get rid of the inevitable supercookie after I'm through.
I just now went back to Photobucket, had no trouble getting on, and didn't get any cookie notices.
