I hope that Linkers are informed about the Flash cookie mechanism.
Flash cookies are much more powerful than the cookies used in your
browser. In the latter, you can disaable third party cookies, which to
some degree prevents "other" sites tracking what you are doing on the
"current" site.

Not so with Flash cookies. A web search of "spying with flash cookies"
will increase your paranoia level to "satisfactory."
