Having to accept cookies
« on: January 07, 2022, 11:06:33 AM »
Hello guys.

There is something I have been unvolunterily exposed on visiting the internet sites.
It is everywhere.

When you try to access any site, you have to accept cookies. This is always the case and I doubt there is deeper subliminal and neurolinguistics imposition here.

I am an 33 years old and back in my time browsing online the internet, there were no such a thing.

On the part of involuntery imposition, I want to hear your points before I clarify the issue further.

Greetings.

It's a way to keep score, big scores get better advertisers or funding from the Boss.

And one can clean them out of your cashe every now and again.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I'm fifty years old and what are you talking about? It was everywhere for decades. It's just that back then your browser would save the cookie behind the scenes and not even tell you about it until your hard drive filled up and your computer started to run slower as a result. Nowadays browsers or whatever warn you that a site is trying to save a cookie and you're like "the hell is this shit?"

Let me enlighten you and broaden your horizon, so you will be 51 in no time.
but whatever, who cares? The biological age does not necessiate the corresponding wisdom.

Cockies were run behind the scenes, and made the pc run slower. It is no concern for today s computers with the hardware allowing the pc to run at the speed of light.

You think giant monopolistic pc manufacturers are of concern that your pc efficiency should be at its best?
Think of how apple updates make the phone slower, just to lead you to buy anoter phone which practically of no functional value than the older one.

The cockie thing is something like when you are opening a bank account, you sign loads of paper without even reading and understanding fully whats written on them.

You WILL accept whether you agree or disagree...Period.

We must share vastly different web sites. Every time I see the box I click no. Still get to the site without any problems….what you looking at?   🤪
