Simon Tesler:

Cookies are an invaluable device for enhancing users' experience of the online environment. For the user they are an essential timesaving device; for the siteowner a way of maximising the cost-effectiveness of a site while also providing a rich and rewarding destination. They offer no realistic threat to personal freedom; in fact far less of a threat than other devices, such as credit cards, which we already commonly use on a daily basis. On the other hand, restricting or prohibiting use of cookes could prove a severe threat to the commercial viabilities of online publishing.
