    Probably a naive question. In general a person’s posts won’t contain personal information (recognising that @mentions might exist, but a person being deleted might be mentioned in others’ posts too…), so can’t we just delete the user and assign all content to user ‘Anonymous GDPR’? They are then not ‘identified or identifiable’.

    This doesn’t help with getting rid of IP address, of course – my understanding is that IP address is classified as ‘personal data’. And there might be other data fields…

    Okay, so digging a bit deeper, it seems there’s nothing in the data following the last reply imported that I can identify as likely to cause the pause (it’s very similar to those around it, in terms of content), which leads me to suspect even more strongly that there’s an environment constraint at work. Can anybody suggest where I might look?
