TL;DR? – digital (web) euthanasia

Censorship and the deletion of data from the web happens.

It reflects facets of mankind.

It manifests itself in different guises and has its own terminology.

For example – “deplatforming”.

When applied to the human species – it’s sometimes referred to as euthanasia.

In the web part of the digital ecosystem the erasure of data means it is no longer seen.  It is dead.  A digital footprint has been erased.

In May 2023 such actions were decided by human beings.

The practice could be term vuethanasia.

Deleting ones own data might be termed “voluntary vuethanasia”
