    Unable to reproduce. I tried signing in in a private window and was still able to do so - the page redirected for me just fine. (And I didn't select any cookie choices.) Mar 20 at 6:28

    @Sonic the OP was last seen in Area51 long ago (May 1 '15 at 21:38) so probably something changed since then in his provider or something like that, and Area51 old login mechanism can't handle it - I suspect they just "fix" it case-by-case for each user, when it's reported. Mar 20 at 7:33

    All the linked reports don't really have anything to do with the particular problem you're reporting. If you open the console in your browser (usually F12), are there any errors reported there? It's a JS redirect, so sitting on that page means something failed or was blocked client-side. Especially given there is extra code in there that attempts to detect if something failed and unhides a link to manually redirect - I'm guessing there's a JS error that is terminating code execution.
