Submission + - Finnish police censors a critic of censorship

Censored writes: The Electronic Frontier Finland group reports that the Finnish police have added to the national child porn block list the site of a vocal critic of the block list, whose name is fully known and whose site resides on a Finnish server. The site includes no photographic images or even descriptions of child pornography. What it does include, however, is an excerpt of the supposedly secret list, found by simply testing addresses of porn sites. The site reveals that a large portion of the blocked sites appear to include no legally objectionable content. Using the block list is "voluntary" for Finnish ISPs.
