Yes, I accept cookies on this site! Yes, I know Flash won't be supported after this year! No, I don't want to sign into Youtube today! No, I don't want to make the Shrewsbury Chronicle my homepage!

But do I really have to click these annoying popups twenty times every freakin' day? Can't there just be a button that I can click once only that remembers my preferences so I can get on with my life?
I would flipping kill the guy who put accepting cookies into legislation, if I ever met him. I use AdGuard. It's free, blocks ads and auto-accepts cookies amongst other things.
I have Adblock, but it seems less effective nowadays. I'll give Ad Guard a try. I'd even pay to get rid of these popups.

There's an extension called "I don't care about cookies" you can instal on firefox/chrome to get rid of those regulatory eu cookie requests. Seems to work fine

There is Adblock Plus as well, they kinda go hand in hand.

The problem with AdBlock is that it seems to slow the performance of my browser

I decided to pop down to London for the weekend before there's a lockdown. I was looking forward to my sister's dinner party on Sunday and now that dipstick Johnson's acted faster than he ever does and moved it into tier 2 with barely any warning!

My sister being a law abiding citizen has called it off. :(

Been into Tesco Express and saw 6 onion bhajis reduced to £1. I was gonna buy them but the pricing guy came along and starting repricing the reduced shelf. So I did the rest of my shopping, went back to the bhajis and found he put them up to £1.15!!!

FFS, I would have paid £1.15 in the first place for them but I'm not having them now!
