Since the enactment of GDPR websites have been more or less duty bound to spell out their privacy policies and make them obvious. I get that - especially considering that this is in every regard an international site. But that big red warning box atop each forum thread is getting old. Yes, I can click it and make it go away - but is it really necessary for us to do it every session? Couldn't we just agree once and be done with it?
Early on, I clicked that I understood and agreed, but the box remained. Just now, in the lower right hand corner I clicked hide message and it went away. I closed BHO and re-opened it, and the box did not return! I guess I'm glad it gone, but it never really bothered me.
I suspect it drops a cookie onto you if you have read it, or click hide. Your firefox is probably set up to delete cookies when exiting the application, as is mine. So I will be seeing red along with you until the banner is killed.
