Quote from: SGOS on June 19, 2018, 06:19:46 AMI have never even heard of the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR, but upon reading the name, the first thought that comes to my mind is how this is going to help Facebook fuck its users.

Quote from: Naru on June 18, 2018, 01:15:02 PMHey Cavebear,As of right now, there is nothing we need to worry about as we don't collect data. The only data we collect is email address which counts as personal information.
Quote from: SGOS on June 19, 2018, 06:19:46 AM"General Data Protection Regulation" sounds like a good thing, but names of bills are often written to sound positive to the public, when much of the time, they don't do what they sound like they are doing, and sometimes do the exact opposite function only to increase corporate power. The Forest Health and Improvement Act is the first one that caught my attention years ago, and it was all about creating more clear cuts. I wondered how many other good sounding bills had been doing the same all along. I saw a slew of these misnamed laws when I was active in the conservation movement. Trump wants to lower medication costs to consumers by forcing other countries to raise their prices. While he hasn't named this yet, he's using the same technique to imply something that is bad for the public good is going to be good for the public good. Even The Affordable Health Care Act, while it did eliminate the pre-existing condition loophole, doesn't make Healthcare more affordable, except for a minority niche group.I have never even heard of the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR, but upon reading the name, the first thought that comes to my mind is how this is going to help Facebook fuck its users. But maybe it's a good thing. Don't judge a book by it's cover, but don't assume the cover is always a coverup.
