I have absolutely no (zero) beef with this "rant", and in fact I
would subscribe to it 100%. It's possible (not even too hard) to
offer reduced-convenience use to cookieless visitors, and, as your
mention of "public terminals" reminds us, being cookieless is not
even necessarily a matter of choice. Any site which "absolutely

of color-less web-access devices), where it could offer reduced but
non-null service in the absence of such technologies, is not serving
its users optimally.
