The Pre-Slipped Slope - censorware vs the Wayback Machine web archive
Abstract: This report examines how various censorware programs blacklist
an extensive (100 Terabytes) web-site archive called the "Wayback Machine".
The control requirements of censorware lead to considering this
archive site as a "Loophole" or "proxy avoidance systems". The
censorware slippery-slope logic (or flying leap off a sharp cliff)
leading to suppressing such a digital library is discussed.
The Wayback Machine is at http://web.archive.org/
