Hi,
Iīm kind of paranoid regarding internet security. I fear that if I check the Remember me box here on cg talk, the cookie could be seen by some sniffing bastard and cause me trouble stealing my account. Am I insane? :)

You shouldn't use it if you're in a net cafe, or if you share your computer with people you don't trust. Other than that, it's not really any less secure than logging in in the first place :)

Hey thanks a lot. I'm the only one using my computer... unless my dad sneaks up at night and writes nasty threads... nah, I trust him.
see you around.
