Owen closed T9252: bilibili.com CSP whitelist as Declined.

The concern I have with this website is we've had a number of Terms of Use-related issues, both pre-Trust and Safety and since then, with wikis posting unauthorized personally identifying information, usually involving the BiliBili website in some way. Given the length of time such information was allowed to remain on the BiliBili platform, I'm not terribly confident in the responsiveness of the BiliBili's Data Protection Officer together with BiliBili's legal jurisdiction in which they operate.

Owen added a comment to T8008: Readd Facebook to CSP.

@Reception123 For this one, what subdomain is proposed to be being re-added? If it's `*.facebook.com`, I think that would be an over-reach, given the number of ad trackers Facebook uses. I think we would probably re-add the subdomain for linking to user-hosted Facebook images, given that Facebook has European subsidiaries and thus forced to comply with the GDPR.

Yes the images link only would be fine.

Owen moved T7567: Enable Extension:EmbedSpotify on mediterraneanvision.miraheze.org (+CSP whitelist request for spotify) from T&S Review to EM Review on the CSP Review board.

Privacy concerns have been addressed over the years, particularly with more strict legislation limiting what information can be used for - this occurred 6 years ago. For the security side, resolution and investigation seems quick and thorough, no concerns were raised over the matter.
