I Invoke Article 17 GDPR: Lucid Delete all my posts
Oh you wanted to ban me? No you have to delete all of my posts. What's that? There's no option for that? Well then I guess you'll just have to do it post by post. Don't worry there's only adjusts my glasses 14.3 thousand >:)
Enjoy the rest of your holiday season, I'll be enjoying the sights in Chicago. Im sure it won't take too long to delete all of them sniggers
And if you dont;ill sue the site under article 17:
Wouldn't threatening legal action generally be responded with removing the user from the service, and then having their lawyer contact the service's lawyer for further communication? If thecolonel is serious here, then I believe that any further communication from him is detremental to his case and showcasing malicious intent. However, site ownership should step in and give the man what he wants to ensure no further issues. In this case, ensuring this user can no longer use the service provided until all legal issues are settled.
If you think it is a problem for lucid to delete all your posts, then you are stupid. He created this website. Even I know how to delete content in bulk from a database. And he doesn't have to delete content from your other accounts. You would also have to give details of all the personal content.
The thing is, a mass purge is always possible, the question is what side effects the website will have. Will the topics thecolonel posted on be unavailable? What about the games he played on? And if the games he played on are glitched out, what about the pies of players who played with him, or the rounds he played in? Etc.
Only the dev knows that, and sometimes he might even not depending on how the website is coded.
As with always in IT, it's trickier than it seems.
For the record thecolonel is totally in his right. GDPR is only recently out, so this is the first few cases, but most companies/websites will have to deal with potential disgruntled former employees/users who will make those requests. And by my experience, very few of them are actually ready.
