A notice asking if you want only necessary cookies or all cookies, including ones that profile you, is like a maître d’ asking you “would you like to dine with us or would you like to dine with us and have your organs harvested?” What about my entering your restaurant prompted you to think I’d ever want the latter?

@aral I’ve started looking at so-called essential cookies and imo these companies are simply breaking the law. Surveillance Capitalism needs to be burned to the ground.


@dch @aral You can you give concrete examples?

Session cookies for logging into sites and things of that nature don't require you to show a silly cookie warning under EU law.

Not that cookie warnings are required at all, it's a client-side feature. It's up to you and your browser.
