    At a guess six weeks is when they were listed to stand in these elections, which were their first ones?

    As annoying as the European approach to the internet and privacy often is, this is one occasion where the GDPR has most definitely worked as intended:

    Haha, worth noting that this would have been completely unlawful in the pre-GDPR days as well.

    "Under GDPR, personal data (and especially sensitive biometric data) needs to be collected for specific and legitimate purposes. Scraping data to figure out if someone once appeared in porn is not that."

    This excerpt from the article possibly misrepresents the position though. Sounds like a specific purpose to me, and it could plausibly also be legitimate in some contexts. The legal issue here is that what went on here lacked any adequate legal basis (i.e. it could not be justified by way of reference to any of the legitimising grounds for the processing of personal data outlined in the GDPR).

    It's not enough for you to have a specific and legitimate purpose in mind.

    modern discourse: a bunch of angry kids is the precursor to totalitarianism. oh, and every now and then, people who are politically active and committed to social liberalism (or indeed, just happent to be in the way of those who are opposed to such) just get murdered and this ~just happens~.

    Not clear if there was even a political motive tbf. The lack of some loony crowing about it would be unusual in such a scenario.

    It's a real pattern now though, that no one seems to care about at all. Not just Germany, but the mayor in Poland, the journalist in Brazil, and others in the last few months alone.

    Far-right taking a hit and the Greens making big gains in the Austrian snap elections. I could be wrong but this seems to be a bit of a trend this year.
