Don't forget that DoubleClick have an opt-out, if you go to their
site. It was mentioned in a slashdot article and there is even
a link provided on the daily static page on userfriendly.
I try to avoid all user profiling where possible, especially when
it is being done by companies who operate under a different set
of laws about data protection and ownership.
Because I need cookies for some sites i go with the netscape option
of accepting cookies from the same site.
