Re: The biggest mistake admin & Mods make

worse than that is Moderators failing to enagage in the site's moderator area.

Re: GDPR Request to be forgotten

any examples of forums being fined for non-compliance? I mean, would it be enough to put the forum out of operation?

I read the newspapers and look at google news, I have seen no examples so far
