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.

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

June Thorburn I don't know much about.
