    According to the new terms and service we agreed to, yes it is very possible. That's how they make money.

    Not been on site much lately. I see things have not changed ...problems with pm conversations and double posting still an issue.

    If I delete my cookies, will it get rid of all my automatic sign ins that I have saved? What happens if I delete my cookies? The option on my phone says "delete cookies and site data" as the option re cookies. Not sure what site data means.

    Yes you'll have to sign in to places again. Clearing site data clears the cache etc. It's fine to do.

    I’m not sure about site data (although my strong suspicion is that “site data” is un-redo-able traffic information that’s been captured), but if you delete your cookies then yes you’ll be getting rid of all of your auto sign ins.

    Deleting cookies won’t get rid of these auto-play videos. The only thing that gets rid of them are A* Block** apps or downloads. The well-known one starts with N worked wonders for my iPhone.

    On android mobile device.
    What worked for me was found somewhere in this thread.
    Go into Google settings. Then site settings. Click Javascipt. Then allow exceptions. Put in www websleuths.com
    Refresh WS page & BAM no more videos.
