            IE blocked them because it thought they were malicious.

              No, your settings in IE say to block all cookies and to notify you when a cookie is tryring to be set.

              There is no setting in IE's cookie handling procedures to block "malicious" cookies.

                exactly. IE can't tell the difference between cookies.

                    Please tell me if you find something offensive about that. Can you imagine the amount of bandwidth they must use every month?

                        Maybe we'll start to get some decent software on there as opposed to the blatant spam that people put up there now.

                        Why do people want their cake and eat it to? What's wrong with a company trying to make money? How dare they charge to use their service.

                          Here's what it thinks is malicious.

                          I think it's arrogant of CNet simply because they already have so much advertising and "sponsored" downloads on their site. People know that download.com is the most popular shareware/freeware/demo download site and people who make a small but useful piece of shareware will now have to pay to list it.

                            so you're saying arrogant = malicious?
