    Default 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.
