Sorry, I am forced by IPS to start a new topic, since they closed all other topics regarding the new EU cookie law.
This is a feedback forum, So I am giving you my feedback.
1. There is a law in the entire European Union that requires to inform your visitor about cookies, before ANY tracking cookie is being written to the visitor. You can turn this left, right upside down, but this is the law. No discussion about that. There are no other interpretations of this law.
2. There is a Dutch law, that takes this even a step further and requires you to specifically ask for PERMISSION before writing any tracking cookie to the visitor.
The European Union is not just some small random country where laws change by the minute. We are talking about an entire continent and a large portion of your customers that are confronted with this new cookie law problem.
Whe need IPS to be a little bit more proactive about this. Most customers don't know how to modify their website to comply to this new law. Huge fines can be the result. Simply stating 'we create software and software can not break any law' just doesn't cut it. A large portion of your customers have a problem. Help them to solve it!
IPS, start a new topic or blog post where you explain (with some examples) how customers can modify their website to comply to this law.
Currently I see only one solution and that would be replacing the index page by a 'cookie page' that give you two options 'accept' of 'leave' since the current version of IPS has facebook, twitter, gravatar and several login options almost embedded in IP.Community so whoever visits a IPS site, gets loads of cookies, if he wants to or not.
IPS, take your head out of the sand and start to inform us about how to solve this problem please!

Ps. If you close this topic as well, I'll cancel my IPS license and find another community software. I was very disappointed by you for closing all the other topics and practically showing your customers the finger.
