The IWF’s failure: being noticed.

Internet Watch Foundation chief interviewed on Wikipedia and Internet Archive blocks; Bennett Haselton’s attempts to get sense out of them.

The IWF was established for one purpose: to get the government off the ISPs’ backs. It successfully did so for many years. Unfortunately, the people currently at the IWF have lost sight of this and now think they have to actually do stuff to justify their existence. Fatal error when your supposed function is technically impossible and socially unworkable. Everyone who knows about the IWF despises them.
