So, I need to... enable cookies to... disable cookies? Did I get that right?

(wired[.]com btw. My steadily rising adblocker-counter should have made me leave that pile of shit way sooner than I did anyway)

    You know there's something wrong with the state of the internet when your adblocker stats hit nearly one million blocked ADs... and that's in less than a year.

    A problem that "Next Generation Internet" initiative is trying to solve is the ever rapidly increasing internet traffic usage... well I got a solution for the "current generation" internet - kill ADs to save 40-60% waste traffic. Force them to be optimized, unobtrusive and not obnoxious... and only then let them back in.

    How else would they store that information? Otherwise they keep asking it over and over.

    @Codex404 I only block 3rd party cookies, so the website itself could still save my preferences with their own cookies. This is the first time I've seen such a message, so other people apparently managed to solve that problem.

    @gathurian More likely, they didn't even bother to notice it might be a problem.

    @gathurian its difficult to do it with those third parties dont support it. I see this message regularly and the sites that dont have this message (and I investigated) are not GDPR compliant.
