Journal Erris's Journal: France Creates Internet Blacklist 1

From the SF Gate:

The French state and Internet service providers have struck a deal to block sites carrying child pornography or content linked to terrorism or racial hatred, ... a "black list" will be built up based on input from Internet users who signal sites dealing with the offensive material. all service providers in France have agreed to block offending sites

other countries that have already implemented similar measures include Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Canada and New Zealand [and the US].

Denial of service has never been this easy. This is what ISP packet filters were made for. Say goodbye to freedom of press.
