That is up to each node operator. Failure to block some content -- like

Associating freenet to civil disobedience (in the node op's
jurisdiction) is a sure way of bringing it down; it then
becomes illegal by self-imposed definition. Censorship is
jurisdiction-bound and so is the system's reaction to civil
disobedience. When you, as a US-based op, agree to censor
kiddie porn and can get away for mp3s go through, you can
trust that your Chinese peer will rot in jail if he lets
reports from Tienanmen go through. The Chinese equivalent
to your kiddie porn censorship is censoring Tienanmen and
letting the mp3s through. Well, pretty worthless I'd say.
Don't touch content. Don't make it possible to touch any
content. When you do, you burn all content as well as
