To all of you above - Thank you for proving my point.

As a foreign visitor to NL - you're fucked.

Now compare this to Switzerland - at the train station you can buy train tickets with cash at a ticket machine. And more importantly - you can upgrade your train ticket to include unlimited local public transportation for one day at the destination. With a simple click of a button.

To me that makes Switzerland a very visitor friendly place.

Comment: Filter for EU searches. (Score 1) 224

The links are not actually deleted from Google, but only filtered for searches done from the EU.

So searches done from outside the EU can still see these links.

So this is actually worse than what we had before. Now Google is filtering ... uh ... censoring search results for some countries.

From the internet this content but do not disappear with it. Also just Google users should get displayed the filtered results in the European Union. Users outside the Member States, ie approximately in the United States should continue to get displayed the complete hit list. In this case, Google will note the language setting of the user.

Google Translate is bad, but you get the gist.
