Hi Mark, thanks for your opinion! I also agree, especially on the
collaboration part.

I, and therefore currently the server which hosts the website, am
located in Taipei, Taiwan. I am only a student here, however, and in
fact a German citizen. Also I'm in contact with the national crypto
scene (which is kind of small in a country this small). 

For now I cannot imagine the government doing anything spectacular to
please the US, but of course: who knows.

If anybody has further thoughts on that situation, please voice them. :)
