Cookie Monster

Am I the only one who finds web site cookie permission requests much more annoying than just silently setting cookies? I just came across a particularly broken example. It:

Pops up a translucent box full of legalese that obscures the bottom of the page.
Doesn't give you an option to reject cookies.
Requires you to tick a box to say you have read the legalese before you click the accept button.
Every time you tick the box and click accept, it redirects you to the front page of the site and pops up the cookie permission box again.
