Germany's working group against
censorship, AK Zensur, has analysed a few recent Scandinavian
blacklists, allegedly meant to block sites containing child abuse
material. Our less-than-surprising findings:
* From 167 listed sites, only 3 contained such material.
* Two of them were listed on different blacklists since 2008, obviously
without the authorities trying to take the sites offline.
* All three were taken down by the hosting providers within hours or even
minutes after receiving an AK takedown request by email.

weapon in fighting child abuse?
