Is there a "never ask me about cookies again" cookie that we can set?

While I know it's in vogue to consider everything, everyone, and everywhere a lethal threat to one's well being, I have a question of a different sort.

StackExchange is a plague of "we use cookies" pop ups. Since each site is a unique domain, we get the privilege of accepting cookies e v e r y w h e r e.

Not only are they everywhere, they seem to come back even after I've accepted them. And they seem to come back a lot.

I don't habitually purge my cookies, or my history, etc.

Yet, there they are again -- more cookie pop ups. My login is reset, etc.


I was wondering if there's a * cookie we can have to quiet this down. (I'd make a similar posit for the huge WELCOME banners on all of the sites just because I don't happen to be logged in.)

I've been coming here for years, pretty sure I'm good with SE cookies et al. Y'all seem like good folk.

It would be great if there was a destination with a Big Red Shiny Button, and maybe an "are you sure" checkbox that lets us carte blanche the *.SE sites. Wildcard the kit AND kaboodle.

"Please SE, never ask me about cookies again!"

Anything that can be done here?
