When I need to fill out webforms I regularly fill in nonsense or rants in fields that are not needed for what the form is for. This then ends up in databases, and sometimes comes back to me in surprising ways.

Such as yesterday, when I received this letter. I had to fill in my address some time ago while buying a book (it was a VAT invoice), but also a range of mandatory fields that were completely unnecessary, and some running afoul of the GDPR. Hence this letter addressed to the ‘read the GDPR, this form sucks‘ department of my company 😀

This form sucks
