Aren't cookies bad? The "cookie scare" of the late 1990’s was largely based on misconceptions that cookies stored on your computer's hard drive somehow violated privacy. Erroneous information regarding cookies has been long since corrected. Cookies are a common programming practice used today by some of the Internet's largest Web sites. There is nothing that our Web site does with cookies that will jeopardize in any way your privacy, store personal information about you, or submit your personal information to other Web sites. We do use ordinary cookies to keep members logged in, which is common with systems like this. The cookies aren't reading anybody's personal information or anything like that.
“Super Cookies”, referring to Flash cookies created by Flash objects, differ from regular browser cookies and are used just to make stuff work. It's actually possible to prevent Flash from storing cookies, although doing so would break everything Flash related.
Viruses used to be able to take advantage of buffer overflow vulnerabilities in cookie handling but that this is now a non-issue. In any case, the content of the cookie would have to come from either the operator of the Web site you're visiting, a third-party component the Web site loads from another server, or through a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. These vulnerabilities are generally getting harder and harder to take advantage of with each new generation of Web browser software. The only significant concern with cookies these days is the monitoring and tracking of your activity on the Internet and the concomitant degradation of privacy. This is the motivation behind “Do-Not-Track” features and third party cookie blocking. It is the bizarre notion that since you bought the device, it should serve YOU rather than a pervasive advertising industry.
PRIVATE MESSAGE ISSUE
I sent a private message to a classmate but got no response.
If you have not received a response in a reasonable length of time, try sending a new message.
E-MAIL VERIFICATION ISSUE
When I log in, I see a link in the upper right-hand corner of the home page, under Logged In: [My Name] that reads, Verify your email address. What does that mean?
Occasionally, I see a prominent message (YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS NOT CONFIRMED …) at the top of the home page. What does that mean?
