Important Adjustments for British Porn Filter
Since the problems surrounding the British Internet filter, which is supposed to ban undesirable contents such as sex, politics and other topics optionally (general explanations here), simply don't decrease, the people responsible for this tool have now implemented a complaints office. Website administrators who think that their site has been banned without cause will be able to make their case. If their appeal is successful, they get onto a whitelist that excludes them from exile although they might have some of the signal words such as "sex" since they apply them in a context that is meant well and doesn't aim at "polluting" the British citizens.
This measure should help some of the established information sites and websites against domestic violence that were affected by the strict filter mechanisms. However, it remains to be seen what happens with those recent cases that are rather tricky and absurd (such as the innocent update for a computer game that got blocked because it had some data like this: VarusExpirationTimer.luaobj). See more on this here.
It's also unclear as to what happens when there's disagreement whether a site should be blocked or not. Can you go to court? Can you sue for damages?
This system has never been thought through and many critics have always addressed that issue. The last couple of months have also proven it practically. With the whitelist, some of the most pressing problems might find a solution. But whether the makers are interested in working as correctly as possible or just accept collateral damages in the future will have to be observed.
