<nettime> opt out of DoubleClick

Have you noticed that after you click to opt out of DoubleClick, many of
the major sites on the Web start forgetting who you are? 

CDNOW, Amazon, Yahoo - I've always clicked to have them remember my
password.  And then I opt out of DoubleClick, and all of a sudden they
don't remember me anymore. 

It's possible this was a fluke.  I might be wrong.  Maybe my cookies all
reset themselves or something. 

It's no big deal.  I just have to re-enter my password.  But the bigger
question is, what is the relationship between DoubleClick and the login
process of all these major sites? 


opt out anyway! -->
