No, not a persistent cookie that leaks out valuable data of my whereabouts. Quite the opposite. soccernet.com seems to be utterly unable to remember that I’m still european, every single time I surf to the site. No matter which OS, no matter where I am, and utterly indifferent to what browser I happen to use. Schtupid.
Should take a look at the relevant cookie and extend its expiration time till Finland makes it to the world cup or something equally world-shattering occurs.
