    They probably have no other choice. 2600 was found guilty in US court by simply having a link to DeCSS code. If the board is hosted in the US they would be opening themselves up to all kinds of costly legal battles by allowing discussion of that. The 2600 case was the first to try to go up against the DMCA in the US and they lost. Most small businesses or individuals can't afford to fight.

     ... We do have freedom of speech ... The problem is that our freedom of speech is superceeded by the government's ability to supress our speech ...
