Cookie Collection Tab

As of today,I have a green tab appearing(and staying) in the bottom left hand corner of my screen.Is it a permanent thing or is it going to bugger off soon(ish).Please don't ask for a screen shot as I'm computer illiterate.

Look on the bright side. The fact you do not get one is down to the CO's, they have to make an informed choice with the software to ignore certain countries and their inhabitants.

Its specifically aimed to make you lot over the pond feel left out ;-)

Are you guys still pissed off about July 4th 1776 and the War of 1812? That was a long time ago. Even Tropper was a kid then.

If you could come over soon and make sure the occupants are inside I would be grateful.

I hate the damn triangle thing - just a bit annoying. Is there any option to make it disappear?
I'm actually not sure whether we can without having a definite 'yes', 'no' popup. The software that does the cookie thing seems pretty good and offers a number of compliance options of which this seems the least intrusive. The trouble is that everywhere I read about the cookie law I find something different, so running with a well implemented solution by a company that specialises in it seems the best bet, even if the result is a few pixels of light green on your screen.

I will read more about it, but I don't think it's any great shakes to be honest. You can find it annoying if you're looking for something to be annoyed about, but I think it's pretty hard to find it offensive otherwise.

I had to laugh at the first post in this thread though - it made me think of Gerneral Melchett, although I can't remember an exact sketch that supports that:

toffeewrapper1 / Melchett: "Why is the damned green triangle there?!"

SecurityGeek / Darling: "It's to comply with the EU cookie law sir!"

toffeewrapper1 / Melchett: "I know what it's damn well there for Darling! So I look like an idiot? I want to get rid of it!"
