"In Europe, it's likely that you're going to start seeing much more modal, intrusive consent dialogs when visiting a site. Don't blame the publishers, they're acting at gunpoint and facing a cartel. But know this: nothing forces you to consent. They are not allowed to lock you out if you refuse. There's only one thing you need to do: Just Click No."
@strypey on many sites, clicking "No" takes 3-5 clicks, with dark patterns lurking at every step, trying to make you accidentally click "Enable all and save"
@strypey does it violate GDPR?
Does it also violate GDPR if a website locks you out if you don't conesnt?
Do they give a shit?
@strypey Just Click No (if you can find it).
