So, to comply with European law I had to insert a cookie warning. The site works best if you accept cookies, as it then remembers where you have been, topics you have viewed, etc. Cookies also allow Google to direct ads according to your interests - so if you have cookies on your phone or computer showing you like electronics, for example, you will get those ads. I made the mistake of looking at homes in my area on Zillow or another site and now I get ads about housing. The cookies are always being turned over, so it isn't a big deal. The frustration for me is that this site is supported by ad revenue, or at least the small amount of ad revenue helps. Yesterday I tried to insert a privacy policy on my own..... crashed the site for a few hours and I had to hire a guy to fix it. Then I purchased the privacy policy to avoid harming the site again.
Anyway, I prefer if you accept cookies because you just might see something you like. But your call!
