Regarding the recent uproar about Doubleclick invading our lives and our privacy, I have no comment. If it happens, it happens. People in the know are saying that you should configure your browser to not acccept cookies, except that disables the majority of the ecommerce sites I visit regularly. What to do, what to do?

Can it be done?
