Re: Public forums and GDPR... right to be forgotten and requesting account deletions

The post content, if visible, also has to be anonymized, not just the usernames. Otherwise, the post content could still be used to identify someone.

Making the posts invisible would be the only way to ensure this was not possible, but then the personal data, if existing, would still be retained on the servers and still potentially in breach of GDPR.

Posting private details and contact details are not allowed as per the forum rules. Would one be able to force the forum to remove such posts after breaking the rules themselves?
