This in no way reflects on treehugger.com.
I logged on to read the article like many did. What's different is that I have my pc set to warn me any time a cookie is about to be set and ask my permission.
The treehugger site attempted to load some sort of porn mal-ware onto my pc as soon as I denied approval of advertising cookies.
All you need, 99% of the time, is the first cookie set by the www site. All other cookies are unnecessary unless you are trying to access a calculator or some other feature on the site. By automatically allowing all cookies, you are often allowing ads or tracking software that moniters, and send back to the host computer, info about what sites you visit. Maybe harmless maybe not. If the www site has been hacked without the owners knowledge, this is what can happen.
On Firefox and IE, go to tools/internet options/privacy and change the settings there. You will be surprised how many cookies are set every day when you can see them coming.
I know this is not a PC discussion site but I thought site visitors should be aware of this.

I don't know if anyone knows about this proposal but it is exciting and I hope the City Council approves of such plans. Enjoy the read...
