The Worst “Accept Cookie Policy” Implementation

All the cookie policy notifications on every website are a nuisance in and of itself. There is one special kind however, that not only bugs you to accept it, but also throws a giant blocking “dialog” in your face that prevents you from using the site while it’s doing… well… I have no friggin’ clue what it’s doing. What I know is that it takes forever to get out of my way.

There’s not much content here other than this short rant about this terrible TrustArc / TRUSTe cookie accepting widget thingy that takes about a minute to do its thing. Why do websites add this to their page? Don’t they test it first? Does that save so much time in development that annoying the users is worth it? How much does that tell you about a website’s owner? I hate these things!
