General performance improvement
EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
GDPR conformity ("right to be forgotten") is guaranteed by four delete options of user data:
Block user: Users will be marked as blocked - they can't log in anymore, but all data remain in the system (blocking can be removed later). Blocked users will appear on lists of assigned users, tagged as crossed out.
Delete user: Users' personal data will be removed permanently, but users still appear in sessions as anonymous. So participation information will be kept without identifying the user.
Delete and blacklist user: Users' personal data will be removed permanently and the email will be blacklisted, but users still appear in sessions as anonymous. So participation information will be kept without identifying the user.
Erase all user related information: All user data will be deleted permanently, so that the information is removed from the sessions' history.
