A lot of web sites use cookies. this site does. It uses them to know when you last called so that it can tell you what areas have new posts since you last called. Some sites use cookies for a lot of other things. They spy on what you get up to on the 'net. There's a very simple way to protect yourself from 'spyware'. Run anti-spyware and yes, it's free.

Try downloading the following, run them and see who's been watching you.
