More and more media companies (or so it seems to me, post a tantalizing caption. Then you click, and up pops a big square, well pop-up, that wont go away until you agree to unblock your computer and accept their cookies.

Often reads like "Tim you dumb bastard you need to unblock if you want my wisdom".

Well, I don't want your wisdom. I didn't go to all the trouble to enhance my security just to say ok when you say let me in.

F them.

FWIW, you still can delete the cookies, once you leave their page(s).

i use a completely different browser, one that is set to delete all cookies, history, etc when its closed... cut and paste the url, read, then shut the browser... i use firefox for most everything, and use the microsoft browser for stuff like that

Actually, most browsers can be set to delete cookies on exit.

Here is a page for instructions on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari
