    A music website keeps dropping cookies on me without a page reload. I've never seen a site drop so many cookies in one visit is all...

    See for yourself.

    2 minutes later and even more tags being placed. WTF are the these people doing? Why so many tags - you cannot target me with 25 tags - they are all gonna be different I think.

    Seems I cannot edit my OP.

    These are tags placed by marketers - remarketers to be more accurate. That is why this is under media buys.

    This is the last post but here are even more cookies/tags being dropped. These people are using Flash to drop the cookies but why so many?

    OP is showing the alert modal generated by ghostery ad tracker/cookie blocker browser plugin. Each item on in that list is a reference to an ad tracking or behavioural tracking cookie.
