"Website by NVST, Inc." Oh really. Allow me to barge in on your carefully-ordered world, NVST.

I use Opera. Great browser. Very helpful. Powerful.

I can't see your site with it. You only allow Internet Explorer and Netscape in.

So I hit F12, pick "Identify as MSIE 6.0" from the menu, problem solved. (Try that with IE!)

Now you want cookies. Just to see your site, you have to track me?

I use Privoxy, and I have a simple rule: I must know and trust your site before I enable cookies for it. Otherwise, I block all cookies, permanent and session-only.

Hitting F12 is not a problem just to take a look. But cookies? I can't even see your front page without you placing crap on my hard drive?

I don't think so.

Buh bye.
