It seems that WordPress comments are ok, under GDPR. So for now they remain, which I am grateful for tbh, because on this site you, dear reader, seem to provide pretty good feedback, which I welcome.
Because of this I’ve amended this post.
The mailing list is still going though, maybe to return when I find a good alternative that is both GDPR compliant and low maintenance.
Now, can I get back to, you know, actual writing?
