View Full Version : Europeans: Due to 2018 GDPR rules, the PoolForum is closed to EU residents.

Although the PoolForum should be pretty far down the list of targets for a lawsuit, the fact that Google and Facebook have been sued for almost $9 BILLION on the FIRST day of the GDPR got my attention.

I don't have time to figure out how to comply. So . . .

The PoolForum is closed to EU residents and those with email addresses tied to EU domains.

I am
Deleting all user registrations identifying a Euro residence or using a Euro email address.
As I can, I am blocking PoolForum access from Euro IP networks
I'm anonymizing posts by Euro residents.

I'm also searching for, and deleting other user registrations that appear to be European, even though they are not clearly identified as such. Eventually, I hope to provide read-only access to the PoolForum from non-US addresses. But that will come later.
