A “human error” carried out by the police resulted in thousands of websites being completely blocked at the DNS level yesterday. Danish visitors to around 8,000 sites including Google and Facebook were informed that the sites were being blocked by the country’s High Tech Crime Unit due to them offering child pornography, a situation which persisted for several hours.
Censorship online is an emotive issue. Some people believe that all information should be free and as adults it should be our right to be able to make our own choices in deciding what to view. In other countries that is not an option since oppressive regimes take control in order to maintain their power base.
Look, what does it take? Get out of my effing life, stay out and get on with catching crims, you $%^&*&^% idiots. I don’t need your moral handcuffs, I don’t need your lectures. If I need to raise my moral compass, I’ll read blogposts which most people ignore.
Sorry to sound peeved.
