That and your standard browser cookies are 2 of the 7 or 8. They also use HTML5 local storage, Silverlight, and a some others. They use evercookie which, like annoying spyware, replaces all of its elements if you don't manage to zap them all at the same time.

And given its use of Flash and Silverlight "cookies", it keeps things around even if you switch browsers.

Don't use Flash or Silverlight. problem solved.

So now we get to see the Tulsa Whirled even less.  The advertisers must be thrilled!

It's gotten me to use other sources for local news.  I don't feel like I'm missing much.

I'm happy they've removed my ability to read the comments sections of their stories.

The most grand side effect!  My blood pressure, emotional state and general intelligence have both improved.

It's almost as if the Sally Kern/Rex Duncan Army doesn't exist anymore.

Don't use a modern browser or let your browser download images plus the above steps and you'll be fine. Wink

Anyone experiencing full-screen popups with sound on the World site?
I thought it might have been a virus when it first happened but it's only occurred on the TW site.
It was the classic scam pupup saying I won a contest and to click a link,
but that's the time any prudent person would close their browser.

I thought Teatown was referring to the one about Coburn saying "It's a good thing I can't pack a gun on the Senate floor."

Classy Coburn, real classy...

EDIT: the link above does mention this

It's called mock horror and lacking a sense of humor.
