@joeo10 @fribbledom Sure. It's pretty easy not to include sources from third parties. And why should you ever set cookies that a user hasn't opted into with something like a "Remember me" checkbox?

@waweic @fribbledom Or give the user options to not have cookies at all, would be ideal.

@joeo10 @fribbledom If a smaller company's business model requires data harvesting, I think it's fine if they are harmed by privacy legistlation.
