This was a joke. Setting the browser to accept cookies which will be
accessible to everyone (rather than to the same server/the same
domain) means very lame security.

I find inconsistent to reject thepiratesbay but to accept mininova.org
(successor of infamous supernova) which is full of the illegal content

BTW gmail places announcements basing on the content of the thread and
I can see (very non-invasive) advertisements of latex gloves (but not
other objects made latex, at least objects probably being promoted by
the site www.latex.de). I wonder if the people exchanging emails
discussing these objects get LaTeX commercials (like "Use LaTeX to
insert formulae into Word" - actually I find them really offensive:-)
