I already complained about that some time ago, but nobody replied me. Sometimes I get lucky and I can reach this subforum, mainly when I have my mobile phone connected to Wi-Fi at home. Anyway, this is only a tiny part of my activity of the forum, I only 'live' post in Spanish subfora.

Also, it has been reported by some forumers (including me) that when you stay in a page for too long and then you reply, often it results in a 'You don't have permission to access to this page' error, which is frustrating when you have written a long post. When I suspect this will happen, I copy the post, and if this happens I reset the app and paste it again.

Most of these apps providing "a mobile view" to something fall into the following two categories:

1) Lousy
2) Lousier

As mobile version of SSC works almost flawlessly in browser I don't care much about mobile app. And yes, H&A subforum is inaccessible for me too.

I prefer the web-based version too. It works perfectly.

the gap between mobile web browsing and app is shrinking. After Google started downgrading websites without mobile enhacements, many/most sites got serious about improving their mobile versions.

How to leave a small parking space

Since Sunday the Danish police estimate that about 1150 asylum seekers have arrived in the country. About 300 of them are gone,
that is to say, the Danish authorities do not know where they have gone. The Police believe that individuals have driven them further through the country.


The question is if it is illegal to pick up refugees as hitchhikers?, I dont see that it's illegal to do that unless you try to hide them when you cross a border.

The Customs Service has arrested five people suspected of trafficking on the Öresund Bridge yesterday and last night. Reportedly, they have taken 14 people in their cars. Aftonbladet has been in contact with the Customs Service, referring to the police.
- We do not really recognize the information that five people were arrested this night. We keep on looking at the data. But we have a number of cases of suspected human smuggling going on since yesterday and last night. There are individuals driving to Austria, among other places, picking up people. There is a law that controls this, it's is not allowed, said police press officer Ewa-Gun Westford Aftonbladet.

It is not good to start that topic here.

But to be honest: once you cross the border of your country that is involved in war or is totalitarian, you are not refugee anymore but immigrant (provided you would like to travel further). That status is fully legitimate and nobody should blame you. On the other hand you should obey some laws (e.g. don't cross borders illegally) because it brings only negative (legal) consequences.

In current situation the refugees are making their situation harder than it could be, because they are illegals and if you decide to help them, you could be accused of trafficking. We can agree trafficking is despicable and inhuman.

So I would not stop for them. Or if I wanted to help them anyways, I would asked them to show me their passports.

I've once heard a story of an Italian guy who spent a night in prison (in Italy) because he have given a lift to an Albanian citizen that had no permission to stay and was researched for drug trafficking. The guy was in good faith (he though that he was a tourist), but, yet, he went into troubles.
I never pick up any stranger from the road, doesn't matter where is from. Not only for this reason, but also because he may have a gun or knife and rob me.

According to a well-known Italian newspaper, Iceland is one of the smallest countries in Europe with an area of only 100 square km.

Yes. In Denmark it's illegal to pick them up, even if you only want to give them a short lift within the country.

The problem is that leftwing activists help them with transport although it's illegal.

Yes, many people even scandinavians underestimate the size of Iceland, which is significantly larger than Switzerland and about as big as the Czech Republic, Hungary or Ireland.

I wonder the same.

Also, it's now Hungary in Hungarian and Magyarország in English?

The highway between Germany and Denmark is closed at the moment. Hundreds of immigrants including small kids are walking to Sweden- a very long walk.

Danish police have to register them as asylum seekers in Denmark or return them to Germany. But they refuse to get registered. Everybody wants to go to Sweden.

In the East of the country there are three trains full of immigrants that refuse to leave the trains. They want to go to Sweden. Train service between Germany and Denmark is halted. At least for today.

This really sucks. Couldn't they just take a ferry from Germany to Sweden when they don't want to stay in Denmark anyway?

But of course they've traveled all the way across Europe and not a single country has taken the rules seriously and registered them- so no wonder they can't understand what's suddenly happening.
