Yeah, ZDNet, imagine, banning ads.
@kura if your website does not store cookies, it does not have to show that banner, so in a sense you're half-right
@kura yeah, fair enough, completely agree with you there
it's not hard to comply without an annoying banner
companies just decided that inconveniencing people who view their sites is better than actually examining the amount of data they're dumping into browsers
@trickster lol imagine having content in your website, what kind of loser you are
@espectalll what? how do you plan to fill up a webbed site with *just* content?!
@fireglow neither did I, I turned off all my blockers for a lark
@trickster “Heck yes I want to get notifications, allow cookies, get daily tech news, have better grammar, get a free trial, and learn about must-have features for my next notebook! This is a dream come true! Thank you ZDNet!”
- What they pretend their customers are like
@trickster Wait is that what the unfiltered internet really looks like these days. 🤮
@lordbowlich some site are worse than others, but yes
@trickster quite amazing to read, you look at the date, you expect april 1st, but no.., august 30th...depressing...
@trickster Then they wouldn't exist, so here's hoping imagination meets reality... =)
@trickster I seriously don't get how ANYBODY can think that's a good user experience. It looks horrible and chaotic. You get a heart attack from stress before you get to the subheading.
@KasperNymand also, in proper newssite fashion, the auto-playing (I guess?) video beneath the fold is completely unrelated to the article
@trickster oh perfect! Everything is as it should be then. After all, we should not feel too engrossed by the interesting article. Depth and focus is old-school.
@trickster "Kills potential avenue"
Oh that long nose.
I can see it growing, Pinocchio.
