    11In 43545.2.diff: make the changes discussed in https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/43545#comment:11 and https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/43545#comment:13. I've also removed the `$data_to_anonymize` param since it became unused.

    3 If we want to be able to anonymize IP addresses by truncating them, we can extract the function from the Community Events dashboard widget https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/4.9.4/src/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-community-events.php#L210 as reuse it. However seems that this will not comply with the privacy laws in some countries.

    55Also, seems that the comment text is considered "personal data", so we will have to delete the whole comments instead of "anonymizing" them. Then there will be no need for truncated IPs for comments.
