I have found web sites that use javascript for security. Noticed it when
trying to access a page. Turned off javascript, no more security.

Id be dead without JS, and I think people would be silly to disable it, but
cookies is another matter. I can understand folk disabling those...

Yes, it does! I can vouch for it! I personally know two (highly
educated) people that refuse to allow them. They are ignorant about
them, of course, but that doesn't change the fact that people *do*
disable cookies/JavaScript!

Now, if I know two people, then how many more people are there "out
there" that are doing this? Sorry to disagree - I view it as a "fact of
life". Having said that though, I don't not use JavaScript because of
it. That's yet another opportunity to control things - it certainly
does have applicability.
