  • IT SHOULD BE THE LAW THEY HAVE TO TELL YOU EVERYTHING THEY TAKE! I actually think they listen in your home, because EVERYTHING I talk about will come up a few weeks later, everywhere!!! They also make it too difficult to find, and a million different questions to not accept them!

  • I've actually been thinking about quitting the internet all together, as I remember a much more peaceful, and productive life before! You find yourself wondering if your connected to all the right places, and checking on notifications. Time wasting, anxiety causing, world destroying. Yes, I said world destroying, because all the Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, etc. travel pictures people think they have to go, and they are destroying historical sites, and Nature, by too much foot traffic and trash, I read. They actually are closing places to the public, and limiting people permitted in.

  • You are forgetting one very important thing. "The biggest lie that was ever told is that the Internet is free". People don't read newspapers anymore and read their news online. Those journalist and writers need to be paid... and how are they paid? Exactly... advertising. Its an ecosystem that has worked for over a 100 years... it just changes form. Don't asume your news is "free"

  • I'm not going to consume many ads, period. Give me a viable, unified micropayment system and fair pricing (maybe 2x, 3x or 5x as much as you would make if I was clicking on an ad) and I would pay you for reading your articles.

  • The newsletter pop ups blow my mind... I mean does it really work on people? On me it has the opposite effect. But I guess it must work (otherwise why would the web designers bother) and that is mind boggling to me.

  • my personal solution: no cookies at all. only if it's crucial to view content then I might choose to allow only the ones original website needs. drawbacks: you need to know a bit how a website work in order to decide if either website is broken or it's because a cookie. also using an adblocker with a lots of filters. plus have an antivirus. with all this efforts still there is tons of information google can get. just incredible. this is not the WAY! shouldn't be this way 😔

    jeffykkccjeffykkcc21 күн мурун
    • Because the video was made multiple months ago, got uploaded to youtube but was still marked as private. So somebody with the specific link to that video can already watch and comment on it. In conclusion, this video was just published a month ago

  • i think its funny that when the sites give you a switch for different cookies they don't actually tell you which is "on" and which is "off" we all just assume that black means off, but it would make more sense for these info hoarding Aholes to make you think you've turned everything off when infact you've turned it all on.

  • The cookies is the scary part yet most of the comments are focused on ads in general. I work in online ads and FYI too many ads absolutely drives down a sites traffic. We know this. In our industry, execs try to balance how many ads they can show with how many a user will tolerate e.g. user experience is important. But these ads also allow people running food blogs, for example, to make money off that blog, make more content with that money, and eventually make enough to turn that blog into a career. But yes we know the ads can be annoying. Every suggestion I make involves less ads. But just like supporting youtubers, these ads allow higher quality content to exist for free. Cookies are where it becomes greedy. They let advertisers pay more money to target specific groups, which isn’t surface level bad, but allowing random companies access to detailed profiles on us is a recipe for disaster.

  • The most infuriating thing is when the site in response to a "no cookie" request deliberately takes it so literally as to not store a cookie with info about that "no cookies" preference. Instead, one of the million "third party" vendors or whatever is the option that enables the "yes/no" cookie, disguised behind some obscure company name. The advertisers and site designers will take the absolute piss at any given opportunity to try and squeeze a few extra cents. The ony thing i've seen work against the ever repeating cookie popup is, ironically, an adblock filter blocking that site element from loading.
