Alex, I think your website is excellent!

And I'm sorry to say that I was a member of another 'bicycle forum' that shall remain un-named, Smile where they had numerous advertisers that had spy cookies. I'm thinking the web master wasn't aware.

It first came to my attention when my Firefox browser started acting up on me a while back and my Webroot security suite found 51 spy cookies located in my "documents and settings" folder. After sweeping the HD, I went back to the said website and my browser started acting up again. And again found 51 spy cookies on my HD. To date, I have never found any spy cookies show up on my HD after viewing THIS website, and I thank you for being a good web master for the rest of us.

I think things like spy cookies also hurt a website's search engine ranking.

Thanks Steve, I really appreciate the kind words! I do my best to keep the code as clean as possible, although I think there may be a cookie that keeps you logged into the forums Smile

Yes, that one is not a "spy cookie" for advertisers. For the benefit of others, Spy cookies watch where people go around the Internet even when not logged in somewhere. Most are minimal risk, but the ones on the other website flat messed up how my browser sees websites. I can't have THAT! Smile

Thanks again,
Steve
