An anonymous reader writes: FreeNet allows one to share any file. No-one can then find out that you shared it (absolute anonymity) and no-one can find out that someone downloads it. Also, while the file "hovers" around the freenet network, it is not possible to find out where it is physically located. This is great for people in oppressive regimes who want to share sensitive information. When I looked 2 years ago what was available (there's an index page), all kinds of interesting information was available. Last friday I checked again and now 95% of it is childporn. This gives me an ethical problem: I would like to support information sharing of people in oppressive regimes but I definitely don't want to support the sharing for childporn! So what should I and we do? Abandon FreeNet? Or does anyone have a bright idea to filter this stuff? (although that would defeat the purpose of FreeNet).
