Hello Denny, thank you for providing lots of information when reporting this bug which allowed Amber and I to figure out what was going on.

We have had a few reports of similar behavior but have never been able to replicate it until now. Since the cases were isolated we concluded there was something wrong with the user's browser but we now realize that if you are inside the EU and the first page on our site that you see is on a subdomain - such as boards.fool.com - then there was a problem of mismatched domains when submitting the GDPR form and security protocols blocked the form form being processed. In the vast majority of cases, a user's first experience on our site is on www.fool.com, generally an article page, they get the GDPR notice, a cookie is set to prevent it being shown again and they can then go to Boards without a problem. We just had to adjust the settings on our server to allow submission from subdomains of fool.com.

Thanks for bearing with us.
- Peter
