That's, probably, because you are accessing the page as:

when it is really:

Normally you would get a status 301 (permanent) redirect on doing this.

Either they haven't coded for this error case, or they know that all
the URLs in the page are absolute or start with /, so save on a round
trip.  In that case, they get away with it because most browsers don't
validate properly.

Quite possibly they have miscoded the link in their own page, as
very few people correctly include the final / on directory URLs.

For some reason, I don't get a cookie warning at all.
