The British Censoring Filter Goes Live and Fails

Self-Help Groups and Information Sites Blocked

UK prime minister David Cameron's prestige project for the internet is a comprehensive censoring filter that demands that every household has to actively decide whether they want to see porn on the internet or not (more on this here). But it started with a lot of problems.

Not only does it overlook many well-known porn sites but is also easy to circumvent. Also, it blocks sites that have absolutely nothing to do with pornography which is an issue vocally addressed by critics and downplayed by supporters. Among those wrongfully blocked sites is for example the Edinburgh Women's Rape and Sexual Abuse Center, BishUK, an award-winning information site with more than 1 million visitors per year (up until now, at least), which is a program that is used in the US for information work. In addition to that, providers also inhibit the access to sites that give advice to people that became victims of domestic violence.

While big and important websites that are wrongfully blocked will surely be free again, many critics see substantially more problems for small websites. Not the censor has to justify why he blocks something but the operator of the website. He has to hope that his complaint (or better: his humble request) finds a sympathetic ear as soon as possible.
