Censoring meetups...

Ari Swartz of the CDT asked a great question about what does meetup.com plan to do when the FBI comes to subpoena them about certain meetups (like muslim ones, explosives zealots, etc.). The meetup.com rep (Myles Weissleder) said that they will not "create a meetup subject area that has anything to do with hurting people." He then mentioned that Nazism is over-the-line... that is, meetup.com will not have any problems in France or Germany.

I wonder where else meetup.com could be an issue... China seems to be a good candidate. Any other ideas out there?
