( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

There was a news article a few days ago that said something on the line like "7% of online business are going to go bankrupt because of GDPR". And my first instinct was to fistpump, because i know that most of these "businesses" are data-grabbing advertising a-hole companies.

I mean, why would a company like Facebook even be allowed to know i visited a third party website, when i'm not even a Facebook member?

Frankly, if companies weren't such bastards, the GDPR wouldn't be required, because simple good sense tells me that protecting a customers data (by security and by only taking the minimum amount of data required to fullfill the users request in the first place) is the right way to go. But since companies always try to make an extra buck by exploiting the user, the GDPR is a good thing. Of course, some companies will go bankrupt, but most of those are based on business models that shouldn't have been legal in the first place.

"For me, programming in Perl is like my cooking. The result may not always taste nice, but it's quick, painless and it get's food on the table."
