Tech firms are blocking eu users as its easier than giving citizens control of their own data.

Don’t get me started on the GDPR.

My organisation is in a flat panic about it. I'm getting completely contradictory advice, most of it completely impossible operationally. I’m ignoring all the management directives and keeping my head down in the hope the higher ups will eventually figure out what we really have to do. Right now what they’re asking for is pure fantasy (and I suspect unnecessary for compliance).

Yeah - that's about the size of it. I dunno if the guidance/legislation is badly drafted, or if people are just making a mountain of a molehill, but it is creating a lot of unnecessary work in my manor.

I predict a slew of PPI-like "Have you been contacted by a company that you didn't sign up to?"-type businesses trying to sue everyone.

Remember Y2k?

Indeed, and it reminds me a lot of that.

I was in a meeting where our GDPR 'champion' was saying how it demanded a complete culture change, and she didn't want to see everything go back to normal in 2 weeks.

I was sitting there praying that everything would do just that :-D I suspect it will, and that everybody will look back and wonder wtf all tge fuss was about.

It's good to be able to get rid of all the spam, though.

Everyone in the company I work for has had to do a gdpr training course - and I have absolutely nothing to do with anyone's data, not even my own.  I understand why though, the potential fines would make a squid's eyes water.  4% of global turnover.

I just want to say that I was appalled, disgusted and OUTRAGED not to have been contacted by GreatWorldDebate regarding my GDPR rights and data security.

I have had helpful and courteous reminders from a surprisingly large number of online vendors, some of which I remember using. I have even been contacted by a plumbing supplies merchant I last used 15 years ago, enquiring about my data security. From GWD - not a dickie bird.

I can only assume you plan to take the information "mikado used a plumbing supplier 15 years ago" and sell it to every spam merchant on the planet. You truly are the epitome of everything that is wrong with capitalism these days.

Yours etc
