Brickset Server Location

Any comments from the moderators on why the server locations were changed? Just curious...

    The forum is hosted in the USA.

    ^ If you're in the USA, and either of those sites appears from your perspective to be hosted in China, then you should probably be worried about something!

    ^The server on Brickset.com's main site shows as Hong Kong just at Lego [email protected] shows up as Denmark. This forum shows up as the USA. I pretty sure that's where they're each respectively hosted from...
