What surprised me was the choice I was offered. Normally, it's either accept all cookies vs. leave the site, or the ability to turn off some unnecessary tracking cookies. In this case, one option was the classic "Agree and Continue", but the second was "Decline and visit plain text site".
Not "Decline and go away". Not "Decline and never speak to us ever again". But "Decline and visit plain text site".
Wait, so I can use a streamlined, easy to read, nondistracting version of your website and not be tracked by multinational advertising megacorps? Nice.
