IWF shares 'hash list' with web giants to flush out child sex abuse images online


Re: Am I being a bit thick here @Vimes @Camilla Smythe

It's not just FoI that's the problem here. There seems to be a lack of regulation & oversight, even by government never mind the general public.

Who oversees the IWF? What rules do they have to abide by? What consequences do they face when they publish erroneous entries on their list? (without any such consequences you can bet there's no incentive to stop making those mistakes)

This is the sort of thing I'm talking about: it looks like there has been zero consideration put into what should happen when mistakes happen.

And they will happen - that much is inevitable.
