Police, Drugs, Blogs

If you read my post about Salzburg yesterday and then saw it again today you might have noticed there is now a bracketed space with the words [substance removed] inside. My roommate Simon informed me, quite seriously, that it is not unheard of for German (or Austrian) police to search the internet for keywords matched with places and names and to actually investigate, based on one word, a large city name, and a few first names of people, the presence of illegal substances and put them on a list.  As barabaric, not to mention ludicrous, as this sounds to my American sensibilities, I respect his concern and changed it to what it is now. In the future those brackets will indicate similar such “protecting the innocent” moves on my part.  A glimpse at an unflattering piece of European culture…
