occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"
then i catch myself.

Hanlon's Law says never to attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. The problem is that malicious people cultivate the appearance of stupidity precisely so that we won't attribute their actions to malice.
