Why is this flashing up on every page that I go on?
I select No and Agree which clears it but it reappears when I move onto next thread that I choose to look at.

This will be about the new rules regarding data collection.

I will see if I can get you a better explanation about all this.

I have no problem with the data collection request question but its flashing up on every page regardless of what you answer and requires answering again before you can read the page.

Unfortunately there is nothing wonderful about it when the ads are over the top. Its also counter-productive, people will put up with a reasonable amount of ads but the amount on here make it unbearable so people either leave or use an ad-blocker .... which does the exact opposite of what is intended.

For those getting the popup repeatedly showing on every page ... you are blocking the required cookies which means the site tries to right to your computer every time you reload a page from the site. You will need to adjust the security of whatever browser you are using so it allows WSF to write the required cookies to your hard drive.

Exactly right.

I do not mind the ads as cycling is my other hobby and the ads I get are for one of the online bike shops that I use a lot.

It is good that the income you get covers the cost of the website and that it remains free.

Well done

Do you not understand tracking? because unwittingly you have just given an example of it.

Move to firefox avoid, chrome and google like the plague [easier said than done i know]

Yes my friend I do understand tracking and how it works. The reason I do not mind the ads is they highlight to me when sales are on. It does not mean I will buy something constantly.

My son is an IT expert and keep wanting me to shift off Windows so far I have resisted but the time may come :)

Cheers
Jamie

Why is this crap happening again ?
I am using Microsoft Edge as a browser and tried all the different cookie blocking options but to no avail.
The pop up appears on every thread on this site.
Any ideas on how to get rid of this will be appreciated.
Many thanks

It just seems to happen on a few peoples systems.

Try a different browser, I use Firefox and have never had an issue.
