Maybe it's just me, and maybe because WPSE is my home page, but whenever I visit the site my computer hangs waiting for the tracking cookies to be processed. It's an annoyance, because when I want to use the browser, I want to use it.
I could block the cookies, but that would have unintended consequences (both for me for WPSE)--particularly inability for accurately tracking use of a valuable site. The issues around Quantserve traffic congestion and processing cookies are fairly well documented.
Is this a real issue or am I just looking for something to be allergic to?
