The right to be forgotten and no right to be mentioned? Are we in North Korea?

Earlier today one of my posts were deleted with the following reason:

"Reason: Part of being forgotten is that members who are still here shouldn't be bringing up members who are not. "

Now, I had mentioned somebody who self-deleted lately, as few have done, for whatever reason.

If they have the right to self-delete, how come we have no right to mention them? We aren't mentioning their real names, a pseudo unique to EF and in most cases we have no idea who is behind those usernames.

Isn't this a bit North Korean like?

Whoever left for whatever reason, that's their business, but why other members here can't mention them in relevant threads for whatever reason?

Stalin was doing something similar, taking out his closest associates from photos after he killed them.

I agree. The right to be forgotten and GDPR extends to things the person said/posted and not something someone else posts, even their alias on some random forum.

because if that's the case then everything they posted needs to be pulled and not just the name.

In that case they will need to pull all the nonsense regarding certain topics they had written on EF... Which can be a monumental job.

It'd be libel anyway, as it's published.

I disagree. Sometimes those posters can be hurtful so a brief discussion of relief and closure can be quite therapeutic.

GDPR or no, itís generally poor style to slander posters. At all.

And some of those who have left, not by having been banned, but because they just didn't want to put up with one or the other aspect of the Forum, are sorely missed, especially by those who'd engaged with them over several years.

Absolutely true.

But unfotunately the tone on the forum is not always in good style.

Just don't let it degrade any further.

Slander / Libel them yes, generally discuss no. It's not as if people no longer have an opinion of Mrs Thatcher just because she is dead.

As a celebrity , Mrs Thatcher has a somewhat different situation concerning her privacy . I donít think her family can exercise a right to be forgotten under GDPR any more than the heirs of Napoleon can .

What would happen, though, if Mrs Thatcher exercises her right to be forgotten and flounces, just to come back little later incognito. Do people around her exercise her right to be forgotten and...which part?

When serial flouncer returns, choosing another name, to post in the same manner on the same subjects & thinks people won't notice. What a joke.

Re: The right to be forgotten and no right to be mentioned? Are we in North Korea?

If mods are indeed now going as far as deleting mentions (that are not abusive) of ex membersthen that is indeed completely irrational and a huge waste of time and energy. Basically, it's... nuts.

Or in other words, completely in line with what you expect from some of the EF mods.
