This is a forum to post comments about forums, talk about how to make the forums a better place to live and raise kids. But what you wrote was interesting to read anyways.
I looked at the Forum and saw that there were similar posts, thus I posted.
I reported this here and to Adobe (I created a Support Case). If people don't think this should be on the Forums, well sorry - I think this should get out and be deciminated. While you can visit Adobe and use the Global Storage Setting Panel to remove the LSO's, you shouldn't have to -- there should be a way on your own computer, while you are off-line, to remove them. The fact that Adobe doesn't provide a method for you to do this, that a "third party" work-around has to be used to remove the LSO's from your own computer (besides doing a "search & destroy" for them on your computer) and that LSO's are cross-platform, makes this a very big issue. Privacy, Viruses and the issues with the Global Storage Setting Panel (Which gives people a false sense of security) needs to be brought to peoples attention. Remember: "Cookies" are 4 kb - LSO's are much bigger. "Cookies" have had viruses (tracking, keystroke, etc) in them -- imagine what someone is going to be able to do with LSO's.
Again, if you don't think this needs to be here then sorry. For those who do, please be careful with the LSO's on your computer. Bug Adobe for a permanent "fix".
No need to apologize, we don't mind the many misplaced posts here, but what's the use of posting this here?

It should be on the forums – just not this one!
