Out of the Blue

I started getting an error I'd never seen before when accessing this site today, as it was returning a Bad Request, saying "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand" and that the size of a request header field "exceeds server limit." This made it sound like a server error, but I searched the error and found it was local. Sure enough, it cleared up after I cleaned out my cache. That makes it all sound as routine as it indeed turned out to be, though that's just because I glossed over the moment or two of panic that ensued after my initial assumption we were under attack or something. It was like an extra cup of coffee, except not as welcome.

The too long request header in these cases is most likely the Cookie header. Something managed to set too many / too long cookies for your domain, likely amassed over an extended period of time. Your browser simply attempts to send every single non-expired cookie matching the origin and path you are visiting with every request, all concatenated in a single header line.
