The current cookie consent is still the same as the old forum, nothing has changed materially in that respect. However, if cookies were disabled completely the forum would not function, cookies are used for example to keep you logged in.
Just because it is the same as the wrong one before does not make it right!
And the forum works perfectly well without the use of them, try it!
FGS! just move the damn thing until a new one can be made, it's right over the logon and user links.
You are currently forcing us to accept cookies, the only option to reject them requires the user to make extensive searches via your "learn more" link (and some links in it do not work)
this is against the cookie law.
