Description

The Data Erasure Request page at https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/data-erasure-request/ currently has an info-box with important information to anyone seeking to anonymize their account, which ends with the following:

Please review and edit any personal details out of your support forum activity prior to requesting erasure.

As posts can only be edited for a short time after being submitted, this line sends mixed signals, and as there's no alternative path forward for self-editing older ocntent, should probably just be removed.
