    Pros: 

    none

    Cons: 

    If there is anything to shame, it's the bill itself.

    GDPR is the largest attack on the free internet since SOPA. It places huge liability onto small businesses and entities, with arbitrary consequences, regardless of location. GDPR divides our internet and our society, while we're literally laughing our free and open internet away.

  • Pros: 

    Potential to showcase websites that intentionally don't comply or abuse data privacy.

    Cons: 

    Petty, apathetic towards these companies, founder clearly doesn't understand the GDPR (website is not compliant with GDPR).

    This project is petty and insulting. You could've built something to help people instead of shitting on companies - some of them even DO comply with the GDPR but you just didn't like their changes (e.g. Razer).

    ⚠️ Worst of all: your website is NOT GDPR compliant. 👎

    It doesn't have a Privacy Policy and breaks GDPR compliance by sharing personal data with FOUR different third parties: Twitter, Cloudflare, Google Fonts, Google Tag Manager (analytics).

    Your "GDPR Hall of Shame" is the prime example of what should be on the GDPR Hall of Shame.

  • Pros: 

    none

    Cons: 

    mocks companies for moving mountains to comply with a new very broad very strict regulation. While this website violates that regulation

    this product is the opposite of product hunt. Where product hunt tries to highlight good things.

    This aims to highlight and mock what it deems to be bad.

  • Pros: 

    Mocks companies which don‘t care about me. Also, it’s funny.

    Cons: 

    None.

    Would never use Razer mouses anymore. Why would A MOUSE need to know any of my personal date to work?

  • Pros: 

    People with no clue reviewing something they don't understand

    Cons: 

    All of them

    It's clear that you don't really understand GDPR, and the complexity of it, when creating a site like this.

    Petty.
