Jcock, that is just it. I don’t think the change was an effort to improve the site. It was forced on them and it appears they had little time to research their options unfortunately.

The forum was severely antiquated IMO prior to this change and the current forum is easily the worst I visit/ participate. 

Can someone explain why WS had to comply with the Euro GPDA?  And only the forums seciton?  Is it due to having users in Europe able to post?  

Seems ridiculous.

My understanding is that if EU citizens were using a given website it was necessary to comply or face stiff penalties or a requirement that EU citizens be blocked.

Thank you Bman. many EU posters did we have?  Presume then it was the website in general and not just the forum section.  It is a U.S. based company, if anyone from the outside wants to participate you follow U.S. laws.  That kind of regulation seems to be an overstep.

There's no way EU forum websites are this bad.
