holy SHIT i just encountered a site with a GDPR "we use cookies" warning and there were two buttons and they said "accept" and "decline"
and you could just ... hit decline? and it still let you look at the website? fucking amazing, rock on website dudes you're the real mvps

this seems like such a low and easy bar to clear and yet i am genuinely astonished as a US resident to be able to just, click a "decline" button and go on with my day looking at a website

@aflightybroad I've investigated the code of a couple of sites that show the accept/decline options and both do the same; i.e. they send you the cookies anyway.

@Sylvhem @crappo @aflightybroad

It could be a cookie to make your browser remember you declined and not ask you again ?
