Even though I would like so, I refrain from adding a flair link on my personal web site because solely serving the PNG flair image file already places a third party prov cookie on the computer of my web site visitors. (I added my flair here without any link for easy testing purposes.)


I really cannot see the necessity for this prov cookie which expires only on Fri 01 Jan 2055 01:00:00 CET. Moreover, as a personal web site owner it burdens me with an additional legal liability to comply with EU cookie legislation.

Can I have my flair without the cookie, please?

Thanks for the request, Serge. This is implemented (or de-implemented I guess?) now. It wasn't our intention to bake a prov cookie on this route so we won't anymore. This should be fixed for both network and site specific flair.
