More on Censorship: Finland Censors Anti-Censorship Site

Since I’m on a roll talking about censorship, I might as well mention that I learned that Finland is using its anti-child-porn laws to censor websites it doesn’t like, including anti-censorship sites, a computer repair service, a Thai Windows advice forum, and an online doll store, all of which don’t have any apparent connection to porn. Of course it’s still easy to circumvent the blocks by using anonymous proxies or changing your DNS to use another DNS service, but that’s beside the point. When countries are allow to censor things secretly, with no accountability to the public, what’s to prevent them from censoring things they are not given a mandate to censor in the first place?
