Because not everyone wishes to have a GDPR compliant forum.tojag wrote: ↑Sat Apr 14, 2018 9:31 pmWhy others can do it?tojag wrote: ↑Sat Apr 14, 2018 9:46 amThis is not an obligation, because no one forces you to use phpBB. This is an element of competitiveness on the market. Which software should I choose - lawful or having a legal problem?
Extensions are ok, but as I and others wrote, the extension is today, and tomorrow there is no because the author has abandoned it. That is why key elements should be in the core.

I don't know Maybe phpBB is to small for achieve this? Why don't organize crowdfunding for GDPR goal?
I may be wrong in my interpretation of what you're saying, so please by all means correct me if I am, but it sounds like you want GDPR functionallity to be built-in to the core, and it be forced upon us (encrypted IPs, e-mails, etc)... not all of us want this, or any of this. A lot of existing extensions would have to be written, and doing any kind of direct database work could potentially be made much harder.

Not that the information was inaccurate (which might have been cause for concern, or even deletion) but simply that it should no longer be possible for anyone to search for it as it is "obsolete", even though it is a matter of public record. All of which is rather like a Library being allowed to store old books and newspapers, but having to destroy any index-cards telling researchers where to find them.
See, what amazes me is that Google and other big companies haven't read the writing on the wall, closed their Ireland branches and EU datacenters, and just moved completely to running everything and hosting everything in/from the US. Running anything in the EU is corporate masochism, if there even is such a thing.
I do too, for *some* of the things in it. But not all things that have merit should be written into regulation/law.Don't get me wrong, I do understand that there is some merit in the ideals behind the GDPR, but like everything else that the EU does, the actual implementation appears to be wordy (54,000+ so far), officious, over-bureaucratic, over-reaching nonsense once you see it in the real world.
