About what?  I have cookies off, with explicit exception for sites where 
I want cookies.  When the crappy website doesn't bother to MENTION that 
it wants cookies, i.e. give me an error page, how am I to know that it 
needs cookies?  Do I want EVERY website to ask me "do you allow XY to 
set a cookie?"  NO!
