We've always prided ourselves on a NON-cookie-ized site and mention it to our readers. From the casual, non-alertist mood of the above mentioned blog my opinion upon reading it says we don't need to worry about notifying readers unless we opt into the new features like "gadget ads". They BETTER be opt-in only. Otherwise they better start posting officially sanctioned, legalese text for us to copy in as a template and specifying exactly WHERE it needs to be posted (every page, home page, pop-up which must be accepted before admission to our site). Of course doing so might also be considered unduely drawing attention to the ads and thus against other Terms. After all it's not US that is providing the tracking cookies, etc. but the distrusting advertisers. Why should I apologize for some other site's behavior when I don't even have any control over which ones I'm linking? I can't control where the reader might go to after my site so I might as well warn them that browsing the internet in general could be hazardous to their computers health. I say make THE ADVERTISER pop up a warning requiring reader acceptance upon all affected clickthrus before entering THEIR site and still pay US whether the reader accepts it or NOT! GagSense just keeps getting more disgusting every day.
