Has the EU cookie law made your web experience better or worse?

Another question from Peter M. today. The EU cookie law came into force on 26th May 2011, forcing UK websites to obtain implied or informed consent to store cookies on your hard disk.  Since then, you will doubtless have noticed informative banners popping up on almost all the UK websites you use.  Ironically, the only method which websites can use to 'remember' your cookie wishes is to store a cookie with the value.  Therefore, if you reject cookies, you will forever be plagued with these popups.  You can guess how I personally feel about the cookie law - just see the screenshot, posted here, of the BBC website as rendered on my iPhone.
My question for you is: has the EU cookie law made your web experience better or worse?
