if you dont specify an expiration time, the cookie
will hang around in memory until the browser is
closed... even if it's an empty cookie. (AFAIK)

if you really want it deleted, when the user "logs out"
setcookie("membership", "", time()-1);

that'll set the expire time to one second in the past,
which (in theory :) will delete the cookie ASAP.
