Internauts visiting this page only yesterday saw a pop-up in the lower right corner, modified to look like:
The pop-up was furnished by Complianz, a WordPress plug-in for webmasters who want to comply with European Union data protection laws. Transitophile made cookies! I didn’t know how or why, had tried to be rid of them … but the stubborn cookies persisted, were clearly flagged as cookies in browser cache. It seemed only proper to say as much to site visitors like you.
It never occurred to me that the cookies might all come …
[Cue embarrassed sigh.]
… from the Complianz plug-in itself.
But they did.
The pop-up is gone, and the cookies are, too.
