This post would be a lot longer if I allowed myself to include all the expletives that come to mind concerning this hare-brained EU requirement.
So I and countless other webmasters have been jumping up and down through hoops to reassure the cry-babies of Europe that cookies are tasty and harmless but, hey, they can block them or delete them if they want. Then see how much they like the Internet without cookies!
I don’t know what diabolical mind came up with this *expletive deleted* crap! So click or don’t click the cookie message, I don’t care. I sell nothing here, but I may be tempted to sell you some tinfoil for your privacy protection.
