This is a next-level anti-GDPR dark pattern from Forbes.

I selected that I only wanted the “required cookies” (no cookies should be required to read a text article.) “This may take up to a few minutes to process.” 🤔

@laura does that yellow notice even make sense from a technical standpoint?


@hirojin it's because they set a cookie to remember that you chose you don’t want cookies. It's the kind of backwards logic that’s rife in trackerland.

@laura so does that mean they're trying to push that cookie "upstream" to Google & Co?
