regarding the region (see Belgium, or France in this context). And this
"etc." after the series of different countries and cultures in
one line means less understanding than necessary....

You mean: stop the Syndicate lists "aec.at" extension? Stop to
cooperate Public Netbase after their previous conflict with the party I
do not wish to name now? I hope these examples are enough.
