It's OT, but you started about reality:

Default lynx behaviour is to ask about each cookie. You can
decide to accept exactly the log-in one (it sends a few
more). You can make sure it's deleted after session. You can
then set your cookie preferencies in the config.

The reality is, you have to prove yourself to make any
changes, and this is a very logical requirement. The
stronger authentization, the better you are monitored. You
can't be monitored less.

If you are so paranoiac you don't accept cookies from
bugzilla.gnome.org, then I can't understand why you bother
to read any mail not signed by some trusted GnuPG key
(namely gimp-dev), not speaking about responding to them. We
are probably all evil hackers monitoring your mailing
