Cookie pollution

Just moments ago I visited to look for someone to go camping this weekend where there was as little light pollution as possible given a reasonable drive from where I’m at. I was immediately presented with a pretty comprehensive cookie banner. The FIRST thing I noticed was that I couldn’t unselect unnecessary cookies, which included over 75 “statistics” cookies.

Most of those “statistics” cookies, of course, are really third party marketing trackers. The only option presented were “Allow selection” and “Allow all cookies” which were functionally identical because you couldn’t unselect any of the types of cookies. I noticed the button for only selecting necessary cookies was still there but invisible. I clicked it, only be to presented a blank screen. See the video below showing the cookie selection options disappearing. I also noticed the ad settings options to accept or reject vendors was disabled was disabled.
