Oh how GC has changed over the years. As I've been here the rules have progressively become stricter and stricter, to the point that I spend far less time here as a result. I'm an American and I believe in free speech; maybe a Dutch website just isn't for me? Here are a couple of the "rules" or "policies" that I dislike about GrassCity: No discussion of firearms. No discussion of BitTorrent, etc. I see a large number of threads deleted because there are already existing threads on the subject; where in the rules does it say that we are not allowed to post something that is already posted? Just because something has been discussed before doesn't mean no one has anything new to bring to the table. I will admit that I am no Dutch lawyer but if GC could really be in any sort of legal trouble for the content posted by anonymous users, it would be news to me. No wonder I live in America. Overall the site has been great and some of the people here are wonderful people, but I don't know how much support I can give to a site that contradicts my views on freedom. I certainly won't become a paid member of the City anytime soon.
