We have received a question about incitements to crime and/or genocide and how they interact with Romanian law per Anon.cafe's global rules. Please keep in mind that only the Romanian judiciary can decide precisely where, how, and to what a given law applies. We're doing our best to balance good-faith interpretations of the law with not stifling speech here.
