Larry recently made a good post with recent and relevant links at the bottom of the following thread:
yes I read the article within the post . here is a quote from it
"here’s the bottom line: under the rules, which cover the whole of the European Union, websites must ask visitors for their consent before they can install most cookies."
This is ridiculous as it would require a pop-up or something on almost every website in the "world" preventing immediate surfing of that website until consent has been given by the visitor to allow information to be stored on their browser.
It doesn't make any sense why they would want to do this , it seems to me to be a bunch of people in Brussels with nothing better to do than to sit around making peoples lives as miserable as possible
wait and see next they'll be controlling the type of content you are allowed to download and eventually what Browser you use !! you might not think it , but this is facism at work .
