GDPR hilarity

Y'know, there is a wonderful side-effect of all the mass panic over GDPR. Whenever I visit a website only to have a full-screen GDPR consent window pop up, I know that the site's unlikely to actually be useful and so to not bother with it. Especially when there's no obvious "opt-out" button and instead the site presents you with a list of a bajillion different categories and cookies to individually deselect.

This brought to you by searching for recipes and finding that most sites contain more ads than recipe ingredients. So I gave up on trying to find new sites and just stuck with the BBC Food site. Who'd have thought that not stuffing every page with obnoxious ads might actually gain you more users?
