In the old days – before the cookie legislation, cookies were used and ignorance was a kind of bliss.
I’m sick to death of cookie notices on web pages. They are bad enough, but made worse by the constant EXTRA stuff we have to handle nowadays.
A further new development that young people and newbees think is “normal” but which puts me off a website quicker than a lightning strike on the bedside table during an orgasm, are the adverts that pop up, polls, notifications, competitions, feedback pages, and, the worst thing, videos playing shit whilst you rush around the page trying to find it so you can switch it off.
There is a lot of debris and pollution on the Internet. In the early 90’s it was lurid colours and sparkling text, now it’s all sorts of extra visual torture made worse by those bloody cookie notifications. As if we never knew!
No wonder I get irritable with Mr Furlong. He’s no idea how exhausting surfing the Internet can be.
