The problems with censorship of dynamic content need to be highlighted
* an image randomly selected from elsewhere on the web (use one of the random
URL generators, grab a random image off the page)
* take a copy of one of the known "bad" images; break it up into 100 smaller
images; reassemble them randomly using a cgi script; ...
The content on many journals/magazines/newspapers changes regularly
(daily or weekly). But there is no allowance for take-down orders
becoming dated. ie, the takedown orders we have seen so far specify
a _location_, not any particular _content_, and would hence could have
the effect of banning an entire publication, rather than one issue.
Nor is there provision for access prevention advisories sent to
censorware companies to be rescinded when out of date. (Not that any of
the censorware companies bother to remove items from their block lists
anyway, of course.)
