I'm going to call bullshit on this one.
So, IWF advises companies that "in-their-judgement" illegal material is contained in a site. So IWF offer an opinion. Their opinion is, this site contains illegal content, and if you don't block it, we may report this to the police. So, opinion and coercion? You don't have to block this site, because we say it should be blocked, but if you don't, we may be reporting you to the police or maybe just set some frothy daily mail readers on you?
So you are not a censor? You just say "That should be blocked, OR ELSE!" but that doesn't make you a censor? Who else makes statements like "Do what I want, or ELSE!".... ?
And your standards for judgement are what exactly? Do you only use legal guidelines, as a court would, for instance? Can I see into any part of the decision making process? Are you transparent?
Do you attempt to discuss the matter with the site first? Is there a resolution process? What about when you are wrong, what is your procedure for that? Compensation for the wrongly blocked site? Do you accept any responsibility? To who are you accountable?
Finally, are you remunerated for your time? How much? What benefits do you take from the position? How may I judge value for money? Am I even welcome to do so?
The only people who should be deciding on the legality of a site and its content should be the Police and the CPS. And incidentally, the CPS have the means to do something about it.
This is just another form of corporate or charity welfare. You have created yourself a job, that should already be covered by the Police and CPS. Failure by those organisations is a separate issue. And seriously, you were awarded an OBE for it? Still, I suppose it keeps you from hanging around street corners in a hoodie.
Anon, 'cos, well, do I really want to attract the ire of an unacountable group that can make 'those' kind of allegations and threats?
