"In France, the government pays for censorship. In Russia, the ISP has to pay for it." #RMLL2017

"In Russia, all blacklists are public. Anyone can see them. In France, they are secret." #censorship #RMLL2017

Detecting #censorship is hard: you can have technical problems mistaken for censorship, for instance. #OONI #methodology #RMLL2017

"Ennemies of the Internet" in France: "SCPP, ARJEL, OCLCTIC" #censorship #RMLL2017

Speaking of #ARJEL, romecasino.com (the first censored domain) is still blocked on some #DNS resolvers (spurious NXDOMAIN seen). Censorship lags… #RMLL2017

Question in the room: any #censorship technique used in France, besides #DNS lying? (Apparently, no, more info is welcome.) #RMLL2017

@bortzmeyer There's still the "Toulouse Black List" applied at http proxies (squidgard) http://dsi.ut-capitole.fr/blacklists/index_en.php by many entities.
Deciding if it's censorship or protection of children is left as an exercise for the reader.

@mherrb The discussion focused mostly on "public" censorship, censorship done in public ISP. Corporate censorship may be a different issue.

@mherrb It _is_ censorship, no doubt about that (unless you practice newspeak). The question is "is it legitimate?"
