My brother asked about receiving unsolicited emails after visiting a

I asked some OS agnostic questions. When I found that he had recently
changed *OS _versions*, I mentioned it. In passing I mentioned that it
was two versions of Windows. Some were apparently offended that their
assistance was assisting a Windows user. For possible offense, I apologize.
King Beowulf's post causes me to realize that the underlying problem is
cookie control and the use of free(sic) services/sites. Have routinely
services since the early days of WindowsXP.
What did I do wrong?
I am the family geek.
My brother uses *THAT* [description deleted] OS.
He asked a legitimate question that I could not answer.
I thought there was generic problem.
What would be acceptable to this OS explicit forum?
P.S. Earlier this A.M. I received a panic *HELP* email from a friend
from the last century. He users *THAT* OS. I believe there are
appropriate Linux tools available to address the underlying problem.
May I ask related OS agnostic questions?
