To follow up the Electronic Freedom Foundation article, this notice from WordPress was just posted on the administration page for this website:

“Akismit and Privacy

To help your site be compliant with GDPR and other laws requiring notification of tracking, Akismit can display a notice to your user under your comment forms [that they are being tracked]. This feature is disabled by default; however if you or your audience are located in Europe, you need to turn it on.”

This is information WordPress collects. Now there will be a warning on the website.

Welcome to the Brave New World.
