    Since you can store info in cookies, and that info is alvailable to the domain listed in the cookie, could you possibly write a server script so that if you didn't manually add a cookie to your own cookie stash, that the website would appear as a 404, or as one of those placeholder domain pages?seems like a good way to keep a highly secret group higly secret.

    would not work. Cookies manually added or "altered" are rejected by the browser on the client-level. This is a secuirty precaution they devised long ago to prevent tampering.

    ok, but then could you set a certain domain to set the cookie from something like a PM, and then use it that way unless you have your browser set so that cookies can only be set for the originating domain?

    you could certainly have a webpage set the cookie... In fact, that's how many sites take care of authentication (including OT).
