Why The EU’s GDPR Is So Dumbass

— Edit Sept. 2022 — A lot of you seem to think the issue with Google Fonts in the related lawsuit had something to do with cookies. IT DID NOT! So if you’re going to rant and rave about “Teh evul kookies” please do us all a favor and STFU. It’s about IP addresses being passed to servers. Aka how the web works!

The recent finding against Google by a German court in regards to a “GDPR” violation isn’t just “troubling”. It is 100% proof of why people who don’t know the first damned thing about technology have ZERO business writing or enforcing laws about it.
