The last location is stored in your local browser via a cookie. The cookie refers to www.openstreetmap.org and its name is _osm_location. If you want to clear your last position once then delete the cookie or just browse to a different location. If you want to disallow it every time then you probably have to disallow cookies for the whole domain. This should be possible with most browsers:
