"You're right! I forgot the impossible to defend against cookies! All hope is lost!"

I hate to say it, but I told you so :-)

"If the government want to "trick" you into providing your email and allowing them to place a cookie on your machine (assuming you don't have cookies turned off) then wouldn't they do it with a site disguised as something non-govermental? Something that looks innocent and commercial and attractive, like Symantec's alert list? I mean if we're talking conspiracy, why use half-measures? let's take it all the way. If you are correct then it makes perfect sense that Symantec or others like them are part of the track-our-citizens-web-surfing-with-cookies conspiarcy."

Actually, I mentioned cookies just because it seemed to me you were referring exclusively to email addresses, and cookies were another possibility.
Of course, the above is another possible scenario, I never claimed that what I said was the only possibility. However, it might not be the most plausible one, unless you have something like Polichinelle's secret type of conspiracy.

"If it wasn't entertaining I wouldn't bother. I'm not mad at you for the truly insulting nature of your original first post to me because I know you honestly don't think you did anything wrong."

I was wrong.About your age.Hopefully I was also wrong about the rest.

"I know it's just not possible for you to see that I'm only treating you the way you treated me. And therein lies the fun."

Right...But try to remember, verba volant, scripta...
