Not sure if it's appropriate for Wiki but maybe it should be mentioned that the finnish censorship law doesn't have a clause about pages with links... It applies only to foreign sites and pages that contain pedopictures. Neither criteria fits the page in question.

Censorship[edit]

This is just rediculous. Even when it goes about stuff like terrorism, childporn, or violence, i still have the right to know and look up information about the matter, don't i?

Companies / governments deciding what the public can and can not see / know... This is a very dangerous development.—212.187.26.150 08:54, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

The guy who checked 1000 blocked links found only 2 kiddie porn sites among them. Altogether there were 1700 sites blocked. So theoretically there should have been perhaps 4 kiddie porn sites among the 1700 blocked sites. The program which does the blocking was costing 2 million Euros. My question is: How much work would it have been for a decent police officer to just contact the servers of those 4 sites and the local police where those servers were located? A day or two? Would this have cost 2 million Euros? I think hardly so and 1696 sites would have not being needlessly blocked but thats how a police state works. Just one more reason to be for a free society without a nanny control. Check also on Seaniehunter on Youtube to see what he went through because of political censorship by the Finnish police. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Liberty21century (talkcontribs) 17:24, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
