This site requires that I log in CONSTANTLY. Post something? Log in. Reply to that? log in. See your personal settings? Log in. We are not talking about different days or hours.We are talking within minutes of each other.

WTF? This is the only site that does this.

@JWardell was having that problem too at one point. Did you ever get that solved?

What browser are you using?
Maybe a browser extension is interfering somehow?
Try accessing the site in an incognito window and see if it still behaves that way.

I’ve never needed to log back in (iPhone X, iPad Air, MBP & Windows 10 & 7) in two years

The only time I've ever had to log back in was when I accidentally crushed my old phone in my car's hatch and had to get a new phone. :D

yeah. Only times I've had to login is because I intentionally logged out.

So I never checked “stay logged in”. I went on a security binge. Looks to be self-inflicted for me :)

I can't say if the problem was fixed, I don't think I've tried logging in to my work machine since.

I never check stay logged in, but even so normally am not asked to log in for something like an hour or two of inactivity. This issue occurs almost instantly after 2-3 page loads.

I can confirm it's still happening to me, only at work. Just logged in 4 times in the last 5 minutes. Still think it is some strange firewall filter.

Can you see the expiration date on xf_session?

FWIW, I only have the 7 cookies below stored for the site (no _atssc or _xf_adblock_alert).

_atuvc
_ga
_gat
_gid
xf_adAction
xf_session
xf_user

All of those cookies have an expiration date in the future, except for xf_session, which has the "never expires" timestamp. I'm wondering whether xf_session is actually being set to a real date (in the near future) for some reason.

xf_session doesn't have a date, it just says expires: session.
The problem only occurs if I do NOT check keep me logged in. I checked that and now I stay logged in. It's as if the (30? 60?) minute timer is set to 1 instead. But doesn't seem to happen if I connect to a public VPN.
