This site [newgrounds.com] contains information that is currently classified as Thought Crime in your region.


(Explanation spoiler: it's one of those net neutrality initiatives, that Fulp sometimes supports.)


Wonder why they chose 2046 in particular as a parallel to 1984 hmm...


That's a scary prospect of a potential future should all these SOPA/PIPA/Idontremembertheearlieracronymsanymore legislation propositions actually come to pass... GDPR added in that obligatory cookie notice too, even if maybe that one wasn't so bad otherwise.


I hope we stand strong! The Internet could be the full embodiment of: freedom.

That's okay, the new internet's construction is coming along nicely. Today's internet will just be old legacy media (kinda like the cinema, cable, faux and conn) by then. The warp storm of 1 October 2021 was an excellent field test opportunity.


I put an african elephant in my fridge but I don't know how to get it out...

I'm usually over here.

Fuck notices, I want the option to reject all.


Come to the dark side, we have cookies.

Didn't we get that too though? With the notices? Problem is you need to keep rejecting all with every single notice. We need global rejection notices...

Not all sites give you the option. Some companies simply can afford the fine.

My understanding is that this initiative came from the Archive's 25th anniversary. They're looking into the future another 25 years. :)

Huh. I hadn't noticed. There's such a surplus of 'em, though come to think of it for example here on NG I don't think I've ever had one, logged in or no, though I'd think we're one of the places that wouldn't afford a fine...

In NG's case, no need to warn about stuff you don't do.

But surely we do have some kind of cookies/tracking here too, even before you log in...


Need to read up on this law. If those cookie notices aren't required in all cases I'd think a lot of sites are adding them that don't have to. And they're pretty annoying sometimes.

We do have cookies to keep you logged in, but we don't have tracking, and the Tom even turned down advertising deals that would have included it.

Not thirty party tracking no, but I thought this applied to more than that...

I really glanced over the obvious there lmao. XD Of course.


Here's hoping their predictions don't come to fruition then...

Do love Duckduckgo, though for some reason I keep reverting to that-which-actually-tracks-us-most-of-all...

What it does is block cookies that track your activity. Keeps advertising from being targeted. You'll still get the notice, though, as it is automatic that the site pops up the notice.

I agree that Chrome is very smooth compared to DuckDuckGo. I use it myself and just don't respond to ads.

Aha. I've been using add-on's to get rid of/limit tracking thus far, though curious if DuckDuckGo maybe does an even better job at that now... of course no tracking via the browser itself then, but apart from that...


Those cookie notices are getting a bit annoying though. They're everywhere. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a notice at all when you just want to click it away as fast as possible to access the actual content.

Privacy Badger might help a little. ;) Or alternative tracker limiting mod of choice.


It really is though, and their search too, why do they haveta be so good at what they do...
