I recently noticed a large of odd messages in my coldfusion-event.log. They all looked something like so:

06/26 14:47:27 error Cannot create cookie: domain = .riaforge.org

This error was not on the RIAForge box but my own personal server (this machine). I asked about this on a listserv and got a lot of good responses, but it seems like the final answer is this:

Reserved Names for Cookies

I'm sharing this in case others run into it as well. When I say "large", I mean quite a bit. In fact it seemed to be the primary content of the entire log.

Please post comments on Jochem's blog though. I've already posted a followup question there myself.
