Here's what my message said. I clicked on a little megaphone icon on my Home page:
"European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.
You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you."
UGH! DOUBLE UGH! I checked my blog (I changed my .com to .fr for France) and there's this stupid ugly bar on the top of my blog, but there's no notification in it. And I don't want to mess up the pretty blog template trying to figure it out.
Do any of you have this same issue? Gah, cookies are, like, EVERYWHERE! What happened to implied consent? WTH????
Have any of you fixed this issue on your blog yet? I'm not happy. Not a happy blogger. I'll have to take out my Blogger voodoo doll again.
Blogger said they did this as a "courtesy" but we are not European. We're American. And I NEVER want to become European. My ancestor left Switzerland in the early 18th century to come to America. He fought for INDEPENDENCE from another European country. But I digress...Crap like this makes me even more isolationist.
To my few European readers, truly I love you. But not your stupid overreaching government!
Until next time…
