Censorware Company's Results "Fabricated"
posted by scubacuda on Sunday July 04, @03:13PM
from the dept.
Censorship Seth Finkelstein writes ".NU Domain Ltd has issued a press release that "Numbers in Secure Computing Study on Web Porn Were Fabricated and Defame the Tiny Nation of Niue". It explain that, for censorware:

"The more Web pages it can list in its filter the more protection it can claim to be providing, so in an apparent attempt boost the count, Secure Computing has included thousands of inactive and expired domain names, and the millions of Web pages associated with them, in its SmartFilter(R) v4 Control List. "The number of pornographic Web pages it has listed as being associated with the .nu domain name is wildly inflated as a result," said [President of .NU Domain Ltd William Semich]"."
