Finally a use for code 451 [15 Jul 2018|07:46pm]

Saw today at a respectable news site, which does not even nag about adblock:

451

We recognise you are attempting to access this website from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) including the EU which enforces the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and therefore cannot grant you access at this time. For any issues, e-mail us at xxxxxxxx@xxxxxx.com or call us at xxx-xxx-4000.

What a way to brighten one's day. The phone without a country code is a cherry on top.

P.S. The only fly in this ointment is, I wasn't accessing it from the GDPR area. It was a geolocation failure.
