I don’t understand your response Daniel.
I publish a web site about live jazz. It is, by far, of specific interest to people who live here who can actually hear the music. I am considering setting up discourse for discussions about our shared meatspace experience. As Europeans won’t be at these events, there’s no value in them having access.
(This is not entirely true as a very few will come here as tourists and on business. Also I’m in a capital city, so there are embassies here.)
If Europeans think I’m subject to their GDPR they’re wrong. I don’t. I live in Canada.
I’m just as able to ignore their latest idiocy too.
For all the hassle, I am increasingly tempted to block them. I already block .ru, .kr and .cn netblocks in return for the tens of thousands of attempts in a week to crack my servers.
I do think ip firewall netblocks are great for ignoring all this nonsense. They are readily available and very low resources when used properly.
Please don’t misunderstand me. I like Europeans. They make some great jazz, and various Europeans have moved here and made welcome contributions of various kinds. They are welcome to set whatever policies they want for themselves. But as I have no vote or say in policies there, I shall continue to (actively) ignore it. And I sincerely wish them luck and hope that something good comes of it that we can all learn from.
