Re: Textpattern demo site overhaul/refresh for 4.7.0 and beyond

As the person doing the hosting, I cannot in good faith expect everyone using the site to abide by GDPR by leaving logging off, leaving disclaimers etc in place, removing any GDPR-enforcing plugins and so on.

We’ll have it sorted by then.

In the meantime, I get the sentiment, but I think you’re covered anyway since everything’s trashed every few hours so there’s no long-term storage. Barely any short-term storage.

Anyone inviting users to ‘click here and win a polar bear’ pointing to a demo site with the express purpose of capturing that info for direct marketing with opt-in is going to have a hard time getting anyone to part with their details in time, let alone there’ll be no record of the transaction three hours later.

Thank you. I have no doubt. Don’t take this (potential) action as sabre rattling or any kind of mutiny, it’s just me covering my behind from a biz/org point of view and a worst-case scenario.

No mutiny implications taken. Pays to be prudent with anything when there’s money to be made by vampiristic lawyers and governments.

Please note: from today, SSL is enforced because it’s 2018 and I’m feeling fancy.
