    Anyway, with whoever the OP was, I'm sure it won't take us too long to have voluntarily taken on his or her right to be forgotten.
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    Not so sure about that. Even it is personal data, which I'm not sure it is, a request to have the data deleted does not always have to be followed.

    If the data is still required, then it doesn't need to be deleted. One argument is that it's required for the context of the thread.
    Try asking a car insurance company to delete your data after you've had an accident. Ain't gonna happen.
