Dear Website Designers,
I love cookies. I am a cookie monster! They make life easier, and I’m a fan of anything that makes life easier.
However, they are designed to work a certain way. When you have that little “remember me” button to check, it should be UNCHECKED when I visit your website. If I want your website to remember me, I have no problem checking it once, and being remembered forever more – or at least until I clear the cache/history to erase any evidence of the donkey porn I’ve been watching.
But do you understand how much WORK it is for me to have to UN-CHECK the damn box every single FREAKIN’ TIME I log-in to your site on a shared computer where I don’t WANT my co-workers to ever realize what kinda freaky shit I’m doing in here by myself? (co-workers: kidding – no freaky shit taking place, I’m just checking my email…).
Anyway, website designers, realize that real people use your stuff, and enough with the counter-intuitive bullshit.
