  1. Yup. Tons of emails. But since there’s nothing I can do about it, I’m in the hands of the website, I typically just delete it. If I don’t agree, then I can’t use their site. Although this isn’t that severe – I didn’t notice your privacy statement right away but was able to view your site without agreeing to it. I know I should read everything that comes my way but I don’t have the time. Plus, most of the time, I don’t understand most of what any clauses/statements/notices says.

    1. For us it’s mostly just a reminder that what’s been done all along is still being done. Mainly, cookies being used. Here on WP they are used to provide the statistics we bloggers get about our blogs (number of visitors, etc.). On sites that allow advertising, they help advertisers track your tastes. But I don’t allow advertising on PT, so again, nothing’s changed.

      1. It’s a WordPress widget, listed among all the other widgets they provide. However, the note about Akismet and spam just appeared by itself; apparently we’ve no choice about it.

  2. I just dump it into the trash bin.
    Young dispersers been carrying on about this, I think it was a 50 thousand word essay on the evils of the European Union, the United Kingdoms of Great Brittain (his spelling not mine) and all things un-American; but then what can I expect from an Italian refugee to the USA 👿 😈 😀 :bear:
    Hope he gets to read this 🙂

... and that's my two cents
