In a small win for scammers, the new GDPR rules are forcing us to stop publicly shaming scammers, which is a bummer. But, on the other hand, the GDPR introduced by the European Union is forcing companies all around the world to give users more control over their data. For the most part, bigger sites are rolling out GDPR compliant options globally for their users (except for Facebook). What does this mean for people located in Europe and companies who want to do business in Europe? Well, you will be able to wipe any of your data from any network/site you choose. You will also be able to track and see exactly what data is kept on you. I personally find this amazing, even though it will be annoying for webmasters all over the globe to comply.
This is a big win for privacy in general, even though it forces us to shut down our Blackbook. We will still keep certain identifiers in a private database that we will use to crosscheck for known scammers, but shaming scammers in public is over.
