My main browser's settings only retain cookies for the sites I need to retain cookies for, the rest get flushed. One of the unintended consequences of this is that paywalled sites that offer limited page views with the limit count controlled by cookies do not work as intended. That is not my fault, that is a design issue. Either the designers are not aware that not every user keeps all their cookies all the time, or they have made a decision that they don't really care about such users. I really don't think you can accuse me of stealing.If CN want to charge for their content that’s their right. Having lived through the CD burner and Napster era and not stealing content then, I’m not going to start now.
