        It has a compilation option to set never as the default, which
can be overridden in lynx.cfg, and the default can be toggled via a
-cookies command line switch.  It doesn't issue statusline messages
when it ignores Set-Cookie headers.  They would either whizz by too
fast to read, or you'd have to impose sleep()'s to make them persist,
which would be just as annoying as the prompts when you don't want
to accept any cookies during that session.

        If you haven't set or toggled never as the default, then the
default is to prompt for each new domain (and any new cookies from it,
if you don't set always or never for it).  You cannot set always as
the full session default, only never or prompt.
