    Did anyone else hear about YA dropping flash cookies which makes it easier to get ghosted and flagged?

    Just clean the cookies and you will be fine.

    If they drop flash cookies, cleaning cookies the regular way wont be fine. Thats the point

    Then go with more advanced techniques, like using CCleaner.

    So i found out that CCleaner can get rid of them, but you have to tell it to do so... this is not enabled by default. This is what you do:

    open ccleaner > options > include > add > now navigate to:

    c > users > "your name" > App Data > Roaming > macromedia > Flash player > #Shared Objects

    Now CCleaner should delete flash cookies too!

    There are several plugins available for that purpose.

    It's near impossible to NOT get tracked, flash cookies are the last of your concerns.

    I was using VPN and Ccleaner...no bans nor flags for a long while...you just have to know what you're doing and not spam excessively!
