    initial v1  
    11I think, it needs a little bit of clarification... I completely agree with @ThemeZee on this one (what a surprise), because there are two ways that this would be GDPR compliant:
    22
    3 1. The comment cookies will never be set in the first place.
    4 2. If comment cookies are used, there should be a user consent - cf. Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. That's the checkbox for.
     31. The comment cookies should never be set in the first place.
     42. If comment cookies are being used, there should be a user consent - cf. Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. That's the checkbox for.

    66If the website owner only can choose to set the checkbox or not and the cookie would be set anyway, then the possibility of a violation of the GDPR is very high. Not everyone knows the GDPR as much as we do.
