Oh yes, i think about half of the spaces listed in The Netherlands aren't
actually hackerspaces (for some value of hackerspaces).

But i'm not going to say which are and which aren't allthough having visited
most of the places i do have a good understanding of what is up with most
of them. I just don't want to force my definition of what a hackerspace is upon

And why would we want to flag/list them anyway? People will find the place 
that makes them comfortable anyway, and if that's a hackerspace they'll sure
search until they found it.
