Hello, could you add the GDPR checkbox in comments form?

Is necessary by GDPR to check every time when a comment is posted...

Thank you!!

On https://wordpress.org/news/2018/05/wordpress-4-9-6-privacy-and-maintenance-release/, there is a new option under each comment box (not Jetpack):

Logged-out commenters will be given a choice on whether their name, email address, and website are saved in a cookie on their browser.

It looks like this:

After discussing about this internally, we'll close this GitHub issue as wontfix.

There are a few valid ways to be transparent and compliant about cookies that a site uses to enable its features, like comment form auto complete. The way we chose is to include information about the cookies we use (including the comment cookies) in our cookie policy which you can read here. If you want to alert users to the use of these kinds of cookies on your site, you can do that using the cookie and consent tools that we’ve recently added to Jetpack, here.

I disagree with this solution... @jeherve

I believe that GDPR needs a checkbox at every form submission with personal data, including comments.

@jadelaop If you or your own legal counsel disagree with that decision, I would recommend that you deactivate Jetpack's Comment form option under Jetpack > Settings > Discussion in your dashboard. Your site will then display the default comment form again, that includes a checkbox.
