You have had the option to opt out of the phone directory for as long as I
can remember.
Do libraries still have paper copies? Don't they send you to a computer
terminal? I don't even know if a paper directory is still produced.
E-mail addresses are personal information.
GDPR is a total mess. "Informed Consent" is only one reason to hold data.

I wonder whether the simple existence of an email address on a site
can be considered personal information, especially if not linked
somehow to a real name.
If it were, wouldn't that make telephone directories illegal?

Are there plans to have a book burning of all old telephone directories
held in
