    Hmm.. Yeah, cookies are getting to be a real problem. An invasion, a proliferation, a serious threat to national security...

    Student cookies? Isn't that illegal? Do they sell these openly and what must their loved ones think? How does their school explain the disappearances or does anyone care? Are the FBI aware of this?

    It's not students that bother me so much as cookies that have nuts in them

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    In general it is safe to block '3rd party' cookies (cookies which don't go back to the server which sent them) and allow same server cookies, but you may still wish to block cookies from certain sites.

    Check what sort of data is held in the cookies. Very often it is meaningless data (to the viewer) and merely retains preferences etc from previous visits. Cookies holding information such as password data (in clear text) are dangerous, I would certainly block cookies from sites which hold that sort of info. Encrypted passwords are ok for sites (such as this one) where you don't store any personal or financial information.
