It has no such policy. The proof? The 'userpass' cookie on this 'ere machine.

A sensible policy is to avoid making javascript and cookies etc a *requirement* unless they are absolutely necessary. Those oddballs who have a browser that doesn't do Javascript, or who choose not to run it, won't lose out. And the paranoiacs who don't accept cookies can still look at the site without logging in.

    Of course, but you see no-other cookies.

    If in firefox, Start privacy mode, ctrl+shift+p, visit perlmonks, view a few nodes, view your cookies, observe no cookies of any kind

    ... oddballs ... paranoiacs ...

    Stay classy DrHyde
