[sf-lug] cookies in Ubuntu

Thank you all, for the replies.   It is the privacy issue, and the idea 
that someone is tracking my computer use is a bit repugnant.  Sort of 
pulling the blinds, but not checking under the bed sort of thing.  
Somewhere short of paranoia?

    I know that Amazon does monitor my purchases and categories, (very 
openly) and I don't much mind that.   It is perhaps taken for granted 
that the feds might do a checkup, and that is iffy (in the minding 
department, if not the control department). I mind that a bit more, but 
understand some of their concerns.  But I have had other experiences . . .

    Thanks again.

Bless All
