annoying AF cookie notices

The past year or so, the web in general has become a serious pain in the a$$ with all of these cookie consent messages. Today I received the first one here at ehMac.

Someone want to give me a rundown on why we're suddenly being forced to agree / disagree with these damn things on every bloody site we visit? Was there a legislation change somewhere?

GDPR. European legislation. In part users need to be made aware of any points where personally identifying information may be used/made available.

You'd think someone would have come up with a Safari / Chrome extension that would allow folks to block the damn alerts (or default to Yes, OK, let me get to my content, dammit!).

They already have and there are various methods for various browsers readily available.

To find which one(s) you want to consider using, try starting with a google search such as:
GDPR browser extension plugin
https://www.google.com/search?q=GDPR...hrome&ie=UTF-8

If you missed some of the info about it try some of these sites, and don't forget the EU is pretty arrogant and aggressive and most sites will just prefer to cooperate with their rules and demands:

gdpr in north america
Quote:
The GDPR applies to EU organizations, and non-EU organizations that monitor the behavior of or offer goods and services to EU residents. North American organizations with any connection to the EU, whether through subsidiaries, customers, or suppliers, stand to be affected. Organizations should therefore determine whether the GDPR applies to them, and revise their information handling processes to ensure compliance if necessary.

EDIT:
BTW: Anyone know where the ehmac.ca "Privacy Center" is located or how to find it???
