We agree that our hobby got a little out of hand. It started with the idea to remove the non-Dutch content from our Dutch Openwater site . (That site has been online since August 1998, which makes it the oldest Dutch Swimming website.)
Some users there complained - in a nice way - that the Dutch content got snowed under by the international content.
