An Esoteric Content Censorship Primer

I don’t usually jump in on public debates like this, but I have a grave concern about the way that this legislation in the UK has been drafted and sold. In particular I believe that the use of the word esoteric by the people who drafted it has been used in a very different way than the spiritual use that many people are familiar with and this is causing considerable problems. This alone should be a warning sign that insufficient care has been put into being precise about the remit of the legislation, and that deliberate vagueness is once more being used to erode freedom of information.

Have a look and see what you think…
