Yeah everybody is hating the emails sent by companies that have your ordered something from once a couple of years ago and you're still in their database even if you registered consciously. It's the new spam.

Let's screw with people under the guise of protecting them. Kind of like Ron Jeremy in sheep's clothing.

Why this is a bad thing? If it gives the user more control over being tracked and data mining why isn't the same being done in the US? Time to buy a European VPN I guess.

It's bad because it's a smokescreen.
User protection?
NOT!
It's more like user prosecution.
The EU hates the internet because they don't want it's citizens squealing to the world about the atrocities committed by their foreign policies ministers.

You can unsubscribe from any commercial email that is following the ICANN rules. You can also delete your cookies.

Fining businesses 20 MILLION Euros (or more!) because some clown is having a nervous breakdown over an unwanted email is a bit of over kill. Nor is it the EU's business HOW compliance is done. Presently, you can click on a link to remove email subscriptions. You can also click on a link to see what a company's privacy policy is. If you don't agree clear your cookie.

GDPR REQUIRES visitors of website to opt in. Messages like that scare off a lot of potential customers. Quite frankly, it is obnoxious for the gov't to get in between two private parties and demand that a private interaction be done in a certain way. The intrusion falls into the same category as requiring two people who are kissing to ask written permission before touching any other part of the other person's body.

It's a PITA for web developers dealing with it.

You say, "deciding to cut off Europe," but in fact, European countries are cutting themselves out.
It's for the simple reason that they don't want anything getting out of Europe.
It's just like, "what happens in Europe, stays in Europe".
This is setting the stage for a major event.
I've seen this coming for years.

Sure it's horrible news for y'all selling personal information. Remember the days when we got spam in our inboxes? Well, our email addresses were currency and we had no control.

Now, the new law says the individual owns their own personal information and you better not share it with anyone unless I specifically say so.

It's horribly bad news for the big corps like Google and Facebook that handle personal data as a business model.

Not exactly sure what this horrible idea about controlling your personal data is about.
