I'm right there with you Isabelle, and it's horribly frustrating, but I agreed (as did we all) to follow the rules and will continue to do so.
So I'd agree that mentioning a name of a person is not really a gray area, as mentioning Clint Eastwood, the actor, is not a "personal" issue. Discussing his marriages, children, ancestry, or what he had for lunch yesterday could fall into less of a gray area and more of a GDPR concern area, and so we try to avoid it.
At the same time, keep in mind that millions of profiles were created pre-GDPR and may contain pre-GDPR language that could need adjustments. My recommendation there would be to make updates as suggested to slowly get us more in line with current rules, and at the same time try to retain as much information as is allowed. If this means we link out to where better information can be found and we allow those other sites to accept the risk (as small or great as it may be, regardless), then perhaps that's what we do for now.
And it is always possible that a mistake will occur. It's tough when the news agencies talk about things, or an obit mentions living persons, so if an "oops" occurs, be kind and kindly point it out or fix it if you feel it's appropriate and give the person some grace if they provide an initial knee-jerk response. We're all adjusting to the new conditions and it helps when everyone is trying to be "helpful" as much as possible.
