Malicious personal messages followed by account self deletion

Possibly, which is quite ironic when the offender had no respect for the privacy of the person they were sending their nasty messages to in the first place! :woman_facepalming:t3:


Yes that is indeed a problem with the GDPR, but it’s her data. Have you
tried contacting your local law enforecement agency?

This is a common misconception, but no it likely wouldn’t be considered a breach of GDPR. The purpose of the processing is because they broke the rules of the community. GDPR doesn’t prevent site owners from investigating such incidents.

If they break the terms of the community or break laws you have every right to investigate.


We fixed the problem of PMs not counting toward the max 1 post limit for self-deletes. The fix was also backported to the stable and beta branches.
