Quote from: Arantor on May 29, 2012, 05:17:24 AMThere was a 'tech help site' that did this - supply a user agent of Googlebot and you'd get all the answers you wanted, but use a regular user agent and you'd be expected to pay for answers to questions on the site. I won't dignify them with a name because IMHO the site is one of the lowest forms of scum on the net.

QuoteThey are actually following the rules because the answers are all the way at the bottom of the page, and they use a cookie to block those completely on the third visit to their site - removing that cookie shows the answers again. Not the nicest approach, but they are actually following the rules.

QuoteI find it humourous that as much as Europe laughs at the USA, they come up with the cookie directive.
QuoteIf anything pertaining to cookies really goes to law, they aren't going to be able to police 50 trillion forums, fan sites, communities, businesses and so on. And, the law is really only as effective as the barrister/lawyer behind that law when it is argued in court. Also, a simple legal statement pertaining to cookies only being used to keep someone logged in and how they expire the instant user signs out, should go a long ways in protecting against cookie laws.
