Technical klutz Ofcom* says web-blocking laws will be ineffective, and so should not be implemented. It did so today in a heavily readacted report – where the redactions were easily readable by the entire world. Ofcom has now removed the ineptly censored study and replaced it with a password-protected version. One blacked-out …
We know all about technology. Come to us for advice!
Sounds like they've outsourced their redaction service.

It works fine in IE 8.0.6001.18702. So not too late, just wrong tool.
Link worked, report read
And I learned nothing. I can't imagine why any of it was redacted, there was nothing in it that any self respecting network admin wouldn't know, let alone those who committed to getting around censorship.
Somewhat perplexed that TOR is only mentioned in the glossary, and that space isn't devoted to the juxtaposition that western governments have gotten themselves into, by actively wanting to undermine things like the great firewall of China, whilst at the same time trying to erect their own (perhaps smaller, simpler) versions.
Accidentally on purpose?
No Mr Witless Politician, we didn't mean to let the internet know how many of your policies are based on mistruths and misunderstandings about technology. Honest.
Man they're dumb. Bet they use IE.
I wish to complain in the strongest possible terms that the web address in your article, namely:
