A way of preventing cookies being placed on the visiting computer by Jooma, Template, or extensions.
So that the visitor could deactivate by agreeing to accept cookies. To be compliant with EU regulations.
Not just the UK but other EU countries as well. My module has been downloaded from places all over Europe. But it is not a Full solution. We need a solution in the core.
I think this would be invaluable to all Joomla users in the UK.

We need this functionality as it will become a legal requirement in the UK next year when the lead in period is over.
Please consider that it's not only about Joomla 1.6+ but also 1.5 as there are a lot of sites not easily upgraded to 1.6+
@ Webdongle: As it's an important issue I've reduced my votes somewhere alse and added 3 to this. ;)
Increased my vote from 1 to 3(max aloud to assign). That's two of the votes you would have if you had any left :D
Agree to infocom. It's a requirement not only for sites within the EU. It is also a necessity for all sites that in anyway is directed to users within the EU. I doubt there will be many consequences outside EU but at least for serious professionals it should be of interest to follow the EU regulations and country laws.
I ran out of votes. Would give it at least 3.
yes this is a legal necessity and needs to be in the joomla core and optional for those in the world that dont have so stupid regulations as us!

Very very very good idea (I think :)).
