Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank Schnittger:
I'm not sure rationality comes into it, even if it where possible to devise a rational schema that everyone agred to.  (Is that not what the current classification scheme attempts to do in any case?).  

If it's not rational, how can it even begin to be defensible?

Frank Schnittger:

However there really needs to be a global response, otherwise those countries (and internet sites) with liberal jurisdictions will become suppliers to those who don't, and there will be "competitive" pressures for everyone to match the most liberal regime or lose out on the "business".

So where's the problem? :-)

Except in this case I think we may safely replace "liberal" with "rational".

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
