And a number of direct lies from the IWF.

"People say, ‘Why don’t you just block the image?’ You can’t. When
you’ve got a thousand different URLs on your list, you can’t have
different rules for each.”"

Available evidence strongly suggests that the IWF can and has blocked images.

“Obviously the list is never going to be given out,” says Robertson.
“No one gets it [unencrypted]. We don’t allow a list of abusive images
to be released to the public. What we can say is that details of every
URL on it are shared with the police.”

That statement internally contradicts itself. It would also make
meaningful auditing impossible.
