Re: Cookie law
"You can't click NO. So it was useless."
My hobby site implemented cookies in the spirit that users might like.
It doesn't store cookies except if a user fills in a request form that will send that data to the web master. At that point they are prompted to ask if they want the site to generate a cookie. If yes then it remembers the nature of their information.
If they say no then the form still sends their request - but will not remember their details for any future use of the form.
At any point they can cancel the stored cookie by bringing up the form and unticking a box.
