Blocking EU cookie popups

I really hate the new wave of web annoyances – EU cookie popups – those little “warnings” that tell you that the server you clicked to look at is looking back at you. Hot headed privacy campaigners have had limited success  but have succeeded in turning a non-issue into a mandatory campaigning platform for propagandising their pet-peeve in a very in-your-face way. Fortunately, an open source developer named Ravi Kotecha, whose face seems very familiar, and blogger David Thorp have given me exactly what I wanted, and  conspired to stick two fingers up at the EU and hot headed campaigners by blocking the the pop-ups using Ad Block Plus, like any other common web-pest.

Well done to both of them. Now time to give it a try!
