I'm writing to inform you of a possible error on your site.

As I am a user of the GNU/Linux operating system, you would no doubt be aware that it's text based browsers are quite capable of accessing most sites. aside from a few javascript issues, the browser in question "Lynx" has no trouble accessing most sites.
however, upon visiting your site, I find my browser is presented with a page telling me I'm unable to accept cookies which in my humble oppinion is an outright lie.

Were I not accepting cookies, I'd not be able to brows to sites e.g. google alltheweb and various others I frequent..

I put it to you that the checking for browser types on your site is seriously lacking and could be easily fooled with a simple change in the user agent string from my browser.

As I am a totally blind computer user and use the computer with the aid of screen review software, I find the inaccessability of this site offensive, and possibly in breach of the ada (antidiscrimination act).

I await your responsse in this matter.
