Why do the cookie popups start with "We value your privacy", clearly they don't because they would've just not included the crap.
@martijnbraam A cookie by itself doesn't hurt privacy, right?
@greypilgrim not directly no, but I just find it funny websites have a huge popup with literaly the "We value your privacy" as title in which you are asked which things to disable to violate your privacy.
@greypilgrim this is usually also the GDPR violating "everything is on by default and you have the click the 'more' link to manually disable our 100 privacy violations"
@martijnbraam Mm, yes. In this case, I would say the website itself is the problem. Ha. I just have a pet peeve when it comes to technicalities and words.
@martijnbraam Instead of them saying they value our privacy, since they don't by default, they should be honest and say they value giving us options.
@martijnbraam Counter-proposal for setting up on your site:
> You value your privacy but we don't. (...)
I bet > 80% of visitors wouldn't notice the difference and accept it anyways.
