in reply to How does Perlmonks know who I am?

As far as I know, when you disable cookies, you disable them from being *set* (This is true on my browser anyway, netscape 4.something on linux). Cookies can still be read, so I can allow the first logon cookie to be set then disable cookies and the cookies can still be accessed. Since Perlmonks is no longer setting cookies for anything, it works out fine. And it's true that sessions are meaningless unless there is some unique identifier (like a cookie or session #) that tells the server what session it's dealing with.
