More on UK Censorware (original story via Slashdot)
Later information indicates that the filter under discussion in the
article from earlier today (from Slashdot) is a whitelist, not a
blacklist -- so it blocks pretty much everything by default that isn't
otherwise excepted. This means that it isn't blocking all the sites
the article notes on a selective basis, but may be considered even
more insidious for suggesting that users view the universe of the
Internet through a tight blindfold with only a few tiny pinholes in it
