    I've found a funny bug which could cause problems. It's related to the domains not being truncated properly so if I visit these forums using different IP schemas it persists my cookies which is a security risk for those who browse, say, using Tor or open proxies.

    It's quite bad and I think you should take a look at it. I've written up a script here which should demonstrate it.*
