There is an interesting debate (and heated discussion at times) going on over at the Woltlab Support Forums; it is related to the subject of Privacy.
But more specifically, to what (apparently) will be required of all individuals who operate websites and forums; and it isn't just for those in persons living in Germany or who have forums / websites with a direct connection to Germany.
Most of the posts seem to be concentrated on what two individuals have thus far said on this issue.
There is some "merit" on both sides of the isle; but I for one believe it is yet another "slippery slope" that all us are going to caught up in.

I believe the "effective date" of this new legislation is 25 May 2018 - but check it out in the Thread to make sure.
