Dear CPU Scorekeeper

Perhaps the originators of your site would like to start a new site that is dedicated to scoring WEB sites that plant cookies on our computer systems. In this case your site would rank near the top.

Your continued attempts to plant cookies is an indication that you have no "Privacy policy." In many instances, sites aren't aware or don't care that some if not all banner ads attempt to place cookies.
