    Is a GDPR disclosure forthcoming!

    Every day we get GDPR statements.

    Today is a deadline.

    Is a prophylactic necessary?

    Me too...from EVERY site and for every account!

    Hopefully, that will end now.

    I just did not realize that all the noise was due to some change in EU regulations.

    I thought it was due to the Russians using Facebook and the like to hack our elections.

    Perhaps Mod discussion is occurring.

    I got a message from this thread which now only exists on my email account. Like instant deletion. It was from a Mod.

    I don't want or need a GDPR, but I did think it unusual that LFPF did not issue one.

    I got a GDPR from Luminus Landscape a few minutes ago.

    First we .... the lawyers...

    I received countless messages in the past days. Sent my own message out today to my clients. I live in the Netherlands, it's compulsory to inform your clients of the update in privacy rules.

    Ah, good. Another opportunity for scammers pretending to be GDPR good guys who send announcements claiming to protect people, collecting information and making redirection click$.

    One of the great misunderstood quotes from Shakespeare. The exact line is ''The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers,'' was stated by Dick the Butcher in Henry VI, Part II, act IV, Scene II, Line 73.

    In the greater context, Shakespeare is talking about justice, how to instill it, and how to disrupt it. Dick the Butcher and Jack Cade think that if they disrupt law and order that Dick (or Jack, I can't remember after so many years) one of them can be come king. How to disrupt law and order? "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."

    That is not a slur against lawyers at all. It's a complement to them. They are, even in Shakespeare's time, the keepers of law and order.

    Now see what you've done? You made an engineer defend lawyers. Oy.

    Most GDPR emails unnecessary and some illegal, say experts

    Many firms have the required consent already; others donít have consent to send a request


    The headline from an article at the Guardian, here:
