The GDPR does not protect legal persons (i.e. organizations) and it
does not protect anonymous information. Specifically:
"The principles of data protection should therefore not apply to
anonymous information, namely information which does not relate to an
identified or identifiable natural person or to personal data rendered
anonymous in such a manner that the data subject is not or no longer
identifiable. This Regulation does not therefore concern the
processing of such anonymous information, including for statistical or
research purposes."
CFT's Cloudflare supporter list did not contain real names; only
pseudoanonymous aliases.
The listed alias of the subject who complained did not use an alias
formed like "firstname_lastname", or any form that could reasonably
identify a natural individual person.
The sole complaint CFT received lead to an investigation that found
the data accurate. Even though the GDPR right to be forgotten does
not have force in that case, it was removed anyway and therefore CFT
was (and remains) in compliance with the GDPR right to be forgotten.
Yet Codeberg still removed the project despite immediate compliance.

"*Support*" comes in many forms. You can support Cloudflare by
praising it, or you can support Cloudflare through actions (which may
even be unwitting to the supporter). In the one case that CFT
investigated, the subject's understanding narrowly assumed "support"
was limited to philosophical praise.
