Over the last month or two, I seem to be seeing a lot more sites with warning popups about cookies, giving the option (I assume) to opt out.

This cookie law apeared to be a bit of a damp sqib last year - haas anything changed recently?

Was there a time limit on the law? Ordinarily laws don't go into effect the very instant they're enacted; there's a particular date, either express or implied. So all the sites that didn't want to pay a developer for half an hour's work have waited until they can get it done by a summer intern or a visiting nephew :)

No deadline at all. You're right, a damp squib.

It's now so watered down that it's as good as meaningless, imho.

It's now become irritating to see those popups.

That's right, piatkow, and because us folks clear our cookies regularly, we keep getting the messages.

I hope it's annoying the bureaucrats, too, as they devised it.

The point is that these are NOT required.
