As this is a none commercial website I hope you all APPRECIATE that I have refused to implement annoying popup windows that noone reads and that pisses off all of us.
To hell with EU. To hell even more with the local authorities that have over-interpreted the intent of the law making the internet a more annoying place to be. I am personally so fed up with all the cookie popups and I hope the browsers will soon have features to remove and hide these stupid useless cookie popups. They do more harm than good. People will not read the text and they will click happily on virus warnings and much more severe messages because it is just a part of being on the web - closing annoying messages.
Stupid - stupid - stupid
