GDPR and blog comments

I have no idea whether GDPR affects personal blogs or not.

However, I decided to clean all the e-mails attached to comments, anyway. In fact, I haven’t asked people for name, e-mail, anything, for quite some time (more than a year already, I guess).

Today, however, I have decided to make a final step. I don’t store anything.

You will be given random name (whenever you want to comment something), I don’t want to know your IP address, and I have no interest in knowing your e-mail. Just express yourself in comment field ;)

If you are looking for GDPR ready SQL query for Word Press, here it is

update 
  wp_comments
set
  comment_author='anonymous',
  comment_author_email='anonymous@e-mail.com',
  comment_author_url='localhost',
  comment_author_IP='127.0.0.1';
