' EarthLink found ... and more than 9 million "adware cookies"--a type of cookie that tracks people's surfing habits.' Scary stuff indeed.

Not really its anonymous tracking....

Now the other figures are something to worry about...

'a type of cookie that tracks people's surfing habits. Scary stuff indeed'....a little over -reaction? If they do send back info it is done anonymously so I cannot really see a problem.
