Hello Internet users! (Should be 100% of the members here)
It's not that you were supposed to ignore it. Nor that cookies are deleterious. It's just because the EU has decided that you should not ignore this horrible threat to your private life.
Putting aside for now all considerations about who threatens your private life and mine, and whether politicians and states should warn against companies - I share with you the notice that made my use of Internet a little bit easier:
Someone has written an extension for Firefox and others to
block the popup warning about cookies
It's available there:https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/i-dont-care-about-cookies/
