 Distracting black "cookies" bar at bottom of every page

pauldelbrot:
Who thought this was a good idea? Does anyone here actually want this pointless banner reducing the available screen real-estate for viewing people's fractals? Certainly I don't recall seeing anyone request it.

Please revert this change.

Me too. But I guess some cookies are necessary to be able to use the site properly? After all, we did change some stuff to be able t continue the site without huge cost.  I actually didn't pay attention to it, because FF is so familiar.    :)

In the big picture, it's probably the European Union that's at fault for this. Because lawmakers here have begun to crack down on business models based on tracking people around the internet. This has actually started a few years ago, but ever since then court trials keep resulting in new rounds of changes that have been requested from the parties who conduct the tracking.

It seems to be a race between technology and bureaucracy. In actuality, it really should be about privacy and not being greedy voyeurs, but entrepreneurs never surrender a quick buck without a fight, I guess. ^-^

Nothing is for free. Everything is created by work of someone.
But the targeted adds (IP based) gets so annoying if not stupid. Google search for finance results in adds of get rich quick schemes. Searching for construction materials resulted in adds of potency drugs and so on. Employment in company X results in adds of the products of company.
youtube adds are just disguasting. On watching (non english) finance videos it offers financial fraud. When it started it didn't have so mutch advertisment. It's a monopoly abuseing it's international status. I think chinese version https://www.bilibili.com/ is way better, mutch faster but I don't understand anything.

I would not mind fractalforums haveing adds as long as site are fast, work on my browser and don't crashes and it exist. I don't care about cookies.
Also I would not mind if google will advertise fractals after visiting fractalforums.
