PSA on Google using Dark Patterns: YouTube has a cookie disclosure because it’s 2022. They do the “make you click ‘read more’ to get through an incomprehensible document while you’re in the middle of doing something else before letting you click the done button” pattern, which already is bad and disingenuous. When you hit the bottom you get an “allow all” button. But _you’re not actually at the end!!!!_ If you hit “read more” again (which isn’t even the right action) you get a “reject all” button.
