UK censorwall will also block "terrorist content," "violence," "circumvention tools," "forums," and more - Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    Huge chunks of the Internet will be effectively unreachable, and which sites go into the censorship bucket will be decided upon in secret, by unelected employees of big corporations, like China's Huawei.

Great Firewall of Cameron blocks Parliamentary committee on rendition/torture - Boing Boing - 0 views

Facebook's spam filter blocked the most popular articles about its 50m user breach / Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "The articles were so widely and quickly shared that they triggered Facebook's spam filters, which blocked the most popular stories about the breach, including an AP story and a Guardian story. There's no reason to think that Facebook intentionally suppressed embarrassing news about its own business. Rather, this is a cautionary tale about the consequences of content filtering on big platforms."
