Apparently not. Wired's claiming that over half of the internet's top websites (wonder how they ranked them) are using Flash to track users, however, only 4 have mentioned such in their policies. Not only that, but several of reinstating their cookies to circumvent your clean up efforts! Interesting read, have a look:

I think that increased regulation in tracking of visitors online will lead to increased volumes of spam and shady activities in the long run.

Repent sinners, for it is you with your guilty consciences who are the underlying cause for all of the worlds spam !

Interesting, I actually didn't realise there was another way to track visitors!!

This all needs a shake up like the rest of the internet industry, especially where browsers are involved.

I reckon sometime soon, there will be some serious blow-up about all of this.

Thanks for the laugh - I got a great image of you up on a milk carton in the middle of Times Square. :lol:
