    WordPress is illeagl in germany becous it is illegal in germany to save IP-Adresses of commenters or visiters of a website. But WordPress saves the IP-Adress of all commenters and so wordpress need a option for delet all saved IPs and don't save new.

    So, WordPress should cater to specific countries' stupid (for lack of a better word) laws?

    I've come across hundreds of German websites using WordPress. Why are none of those people being arrested? How big of a deal is it there?

  3. Well, I used to run adult sites and the german goverment wrote me real snail mail letters telling me to password protect my sites if they contained pictures of adult nature, but they never did anything about it more than the letters.

    So I guess national laws are difficult for govements to inforce online...

    Actual there is a process against a newspaper that used wordpress becous of the saved IP Adresses. They have to pay 100.000 €.
