Some of the sites you cannot access without inviting a zillion cookies

As I was getting ever frustrated with all kinds of pop-ups and other similar nasty stuff, I decided to use the Internet Options (this is for IE 11.0) to makes changes to my advance settings. I gave permission to accept cookies from third party and that opened a flood of cooking streaming in. Some of the sites such as Seeking Alpha, StackOverflow and many other sites flooded my browser with cookies. Here is a picture of some of the cookies (over a period of some 6~7 minutes), a really small %tage of the alerts I captured. It is not interesting to go to these sites at all if you can help it.
