    Currently a visitor who does really not want to support my or any other JSE enabled website can choose to opt out, and nothing changes for him – he can still see all the content while making a webmaster unhappy.

    However, I think it is the right of a webmaster to refuse these visitors. If it is a smart thing to do I leave in the middle. It will be different for every site. With ads it is easy enough to install an ‘anti ad block script’, but with JSE it is not possible.

    So my suggestion is to give the webmasters a choice:

    – or they leave it as it is now and accept these people.

    – or they can choose from a slightly different .js script, where the opt out link is replaced with something like “if you don’t like it, please leave”. If the visitor still refuses to accept mining and stays on the site, they will see the JSE pop up on every page they visit, which is seriously annoying. This way, nobody can blame JSE for not asking consent.

    What do you think about this?

    We could potentially fire a javascript event on opt-in. This would be fairly straightforward from a technical point of view. Fire a global event and the webmaster can listen for it and proceed accordingly. I think we didn’t do this originally because it could potentially lead to forced or incentivized opt-ins which would be more questionable ethically. I’m not sure if the benefits outweigh the potential for abuse. Thoughts?

    The code would be something like this:
