I am getting a lot of conflicting information regarding whether we can even continue to do this in the current climate, most of it coming from half baked documents or different people's opinion, so I wanted to put it out there to see if there is anything that the community may have that we can use or help with in a co-ordinated way.

The 88 page source:

Linked from:

GDPR seems the latest government imposed plague ** to consume
business time unpaid, along with VAT etc.  Bigger companies can
afford it, but for some small companies it's last nail in the coffin.

** Remember the ISO 9000 certification plague ?  When industry
threw out good equipment that wasn't ISO 9000; & even banks bored
us they too were ISO 9000 method compliant. 

I may put something like this at top of
  GDPR: 88 pages of PDF this unpaid admin has no time to read.
  Mail lists & web are run Free. You pay nothing. We are paid nothing.
  If you object Unsubscribe Yourself.
