Re: to jmo

<snip> I can sympathize a bit because I made a mistake in the past too...where I thought I was being helpful then received a nasty-gram for breaking the rules and insinuating I was actively trying to break the rules. And I can agree that there may be a mod which may be a bit of a BOFH (and I mean t...

Re: Diplomacy club

Wow, Seniac, are you really a progressive? I remember at least at my school that whatever the brother or lay teacher said was the law...and we didn't really have much say in it unless parents got involved. But then again, I went to Catholic school so I may be still traumatized by that fact... :razz:

Re: M45 GM?

When we say a vanilla game, are we talking mountainous (all Vts and goons), or just very light, like only 1 cop, 1 doc, factional NK and RB? Usually on this site we mean very light, not plain. So if we want to use a yoghurt analogy - sort of like vanilla yoghurt (it still has some flavour) vs plain...

Re: GDPR Discussion

I am not sure there is a point continuing from this thread as it became very toxic. Continuing on with discussion here will probably continue to bring up these toxic points...which aren't really helpful in truly trying to understand where everyone is coming from. To continue it would probably be bes...

Re: Is Webdiplomacy GDPR compliant?

A non-political response is: (1) webdip is not and will not be gdpr compliant. We believe there too much work involved. (2) We keep data only to run the site. The code is open source. (3) Here is a summary of what we do do with data. Anything over and above that (e.g. GDPR is ineffective for privacy...

Re: Is Webdiplomacy GDPR compliant?

How many times to I have to repeat how much respect I have for the time put in? Once per yeah time you come off as a jackass to the people doing the free work on the site should suffice.

Re: Is Webdiplomacy GDPR compliant?

Again I don't understand where I was trivializing the amount of work done on the site. How many times to I have to repeat how much respect I have for the time put in? And I am a donator too.

Do I have to put a disclaimer around every single comment?

Re: Is Webdiplomacy GDPR compliant?

@bo - Lots of strawmen here. Let's get the confusion out of the way. I really don't care whether webdip is strictly GDPR compliant or not. I did not start this thread! jmo was arguing that a privacy statement would put the site in legal jeopardy, that somehow providing more information would be wors...

GDPR Discussion

I am not sure where to start because there is so much confusion, FUD and talking points written here. Let's clear one thing up first. The original EU cookie directive is NOT from the GDPR so making that the poster child is just wrong. That dates back to 2009. I agree it was not an ideal attempt to s...

Re: Is Webdiplomacy GDPR compliant?

I am not sure why the GDPR hate. Whilst not perfect it is a great first attempt at trying to give people control of their data. I don't see why I have to give up my privacy choices just because not everyone understands all the technical details. And the current fines against Facebook/Google are very...

Re: Development Feedback

Wouldn't your browser cache accomplish the exact same thing? No, not really. Browsers tend to re-fetch files unnecessarily a great deal of the time. (esp. images, javascript, css) A proxy can be set to just serve those files to the client regardless of the expiry times set by the client or the part...

Who on Earth in 2019 can't spare cycles and bandwidth for https? WebDip isn't exactly a high-performance microservice. I would much rather a guarantee that the password I use for a bunch of sites isn't being sent in plaintext. Maybe don't mention the fact that you reuse your password on multiple si...

Re: Brexit

The trouble is that it isn't particularly good for social cohesion. The original referendum question was fine if Remain had won, but it simply wasn't designed for a Brexit victory. A no deal Brexit will satisfy a fair number of people, but far from a majority. Combine economic hardship and a majori...
