I hate those fucking cookie pop-ups. I don't give two shits and I hate that they have to be a thing.

It's pleasantly surprising when one can be clever.

There needs to be a global cookie for "accepts cookies". And all these sites are already using cookies before the shit pop up shows anyway. What's the fucking point? So grandma can be linked to a Wikipedia entry on cookies? Fuck off.

    I think the latest GDPR states that you have to inform the user if your site uses cookies. I've been receiving a lot of emails

    You're informing a user of (quite intrusive) tracking, that's good so people can choose to back off before being tracked by those tiny fuckers.

    By then it's already too late? Sure, if you leave right away they don't track what you do on that page, but you're still tracked as having visited it. There's been plenty of sites I've clicked on accident, left before most of it loaded, but still got ads related to just that.
