Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).

I though WA stood for Washington state, not Washington DC. (I'm Australian, so I could be wrong.)
Or did someone get confused by "WaPo", a common abbreviation for The Washington Post?
The 1000+ websites mentioned in the post are (supposedly) part of a "cold-calling investment scam using the name ‘Global Capital Wealth’". The Australian Securities and Investment Commission, the federal corporate regulator, has ordered that their IP addresses be blocked, which also catches innocent websites co-hosted at those IP addresses.
The Australian Federal Police also asks ISPs to block websites listed by Interpol as containing “'worst of the worst' child pornography", apparently via DNS (news reports mention "domains" and "URLs"), but perhaps also at the IP level. Most ISPs have complied; at least one has refused.
[My take: There may be a case for corporate regulation bureaucrats to get some websites blocked, but only at DNS level and only in smaller numbers. Blocking extreme child porn sites via DNS would be next to useless, so I hope they also block at IP level.]

[T]here are two APIs. The internal “importer” API, which can only be accessed by [Firefox] extensions, allows you to perform arbitrary network and OS-level operations to get information into the system. The external “content” API, which can be accessed by any web page, allows you to request access to contact data (and then starts the “permission” dialog, where the user can choose what access to grant).
This website seems to be the place to find out more.
