Apart from the fact that if German laws are stupid or not you are
totally beside the point. BTW your laws in your country are stupid too
(just to prove the point that arguments like that are useless).
I noticed that if people point out legal infringements people argue
1) The uploader is liable
2) The servers are in Florida
They choose what suits them best.
Fact is that if you do not care about showing your ass in public there
are still people that do. I see no argument for not respecting other
peoples behaviour in the internet/in public. Give an argument why
these statistical evaluations are so important for the project and why
we can not do without. Otherwise I would like to see the page deleted.
In accordance with Sharia law (in effect in Iran, Syria, Saudia Arabia
etc.) I will start deleting all images which portray people.
