Re: They shall regret GDPR

I doubt I am unusual here by not being in my local phone book. I don't have a landline.

I moved a couple of months ago and when I registered to vote, I was asked if I wanted to be in the publicly available electoral roll. I declined that. From what I have heard, everyone should decline.

Not showing up in those does not stop the Bill knowing where I live. Neither does it stop me being able to vote. Not being searchable by WHOIS etc keeps the crooks, spammer and "Imaginary Property" scammers away. I does not keep legitimate authorities out. It makes them a little more likely to follow the rules if they want to discuss things with me (I really hope).
