>This brings up one point: there is no evidence whatsoever that they actually >do the job they >claim to. They claim to provide a list of problematical sites images and webpages. We know such a list exists. We know that a fair number of the URLs on it end in .jpg and the like and we know that there are both single pages and entire sites on the list. So yes it would appear that they do what they claim to do. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/pipermail/ukcrypto/2008-December/085789.html >And there is this piece of evidence that they don't actually know how to. >Hamfisted *and* >incompetent. They probably do it's just there are rather a lot of ways out there of organising your website and they didn't immediately pick up on which one wikipedia uses. What worries me is "The last audit was performed by [LSE forensics expert] Peter Sommer, assistant chief constable Stuart Hyde of the West Midlands police, June Thorburn, professor of social work at the University of East Anglia, and Jim Warnock, head of operations at CEOP [Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre]." So at least two of their audit team came from organisations that have other dealings with the IWF (West Midlands police and CEOP) Peter Sommer appears to be a reasonable choice http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/pipermail/ukcrypto/2008-December/085821.html http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/pipermail/ukcrypto/2008-December/085929.html June Thorburn I don't know much about. -- geni _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l WMUK: http://uk.wikimedia.org
