When I was at uni the web (http://www..) opened to me a world of information above and beyond the burgeoning Internet which had allowed me to reach like minds for perhaps the first time, outside of libraries and their books, where I lived as a child. It is a wonderful tool.

Now, it's all too often "Accept our cookies or go away"...let's be clear, I *do* pay for subscription services, and the few sites that I *do* frequently visit. I would rather pay financially.

*sad*

One way I deal with it is to visit the sites in a Firefox private browsing window and accept (some of) the cookies. I close the private window when I've finished reading, deleting the cookies.

Some sites don't like this, but I think that other publishers have learned to live with it.
