I am sorry if this hs been discussed before in another post as I have not been able to find a similar topic.

I would like to delete some of my previous posts, is there a way of doing that?

Thanks

Thank you for your reply!

However, I am wondering if this doesn't go against the law? especially the GDPR principles?
The key elements of the GDPR
Personal data
The GDPR applies to personal data. This is any information that can directly or indirectly identify a natural person and can be in any format. The Regulation places much stronger controls on the processing of special categories of personal data. The inclusion of genetic and biometric data is new.
Personal data could be:
Name
Address
Email address
Photo
IP address
Location data
Online behaviour (cookies)
Profiling and analytics data

There are also Special categories of personal data:
Race
Religion
Political opinions
Trade union membership
Sexual orientation
Health information
Biometric data
Genetic data

Also, when signing up on online forums, You must ensure that when users sign up, they agree to your terms and conditions and said conditions adhere to the new GDPR.


In view of these, if by reading any post they can identify any of the personal data (listed above), special categories (equally listed above), location data, an online identifier or one of several special characteristics which expresses the physical, psychological, genetic, mental, commercial, cultural, social identity, then upon request by the user, the data must be deleted

Finally, in addition to all these, is also the right to be forgotten.

Correct me if I am wrong.

None of this information is published online and we try to ensure that any personally identifiable information (such as the ones you have listed) are deleted on these forums. Therefore that argument is moot (a fun double entendre for any lawyers out there).

We can change your username if you feel that it is too easily identifiable.

The information does not have to be "published online" for the GDPR to take effect. Please take the time and make some research before dismissing things without knowledge on it. Thank you.
