Bullshit marketing speak about "cookies and similiar technologies"

I just read, “we use cookies and similar technologies for performance, analytics, personalization, advertising, and to help our site function.”

I’m here to tell ya, that is bullshit marketing speak, to get you to accept they get to write text files to your computer for their own profitable reasons, but no actually help you.

The state of the web is like being told over megaphone half way through a roller coaster that your photo will be taken, and you agreed to it by riding. By the time you hear the message, the decision has been made.
