There has been some questionable advice by a regulatory body, though. Most damage is done by ISPs which simply do not adjust the filters to the moving target and run them as-is since 2001 or so. Null routes tend to filter a different customer after such a long time.
Here it is documented. Sorry it is in german only: http://odem.org/informationsfreiheit/ http://www.ccc.de/censorship/?language=de http://www.netzzensur.de/demo/ http://www.politik-digital.de/edemocracy/netzrecht/dorf.shtml http://www.zdnet.de/news/software/0,39023144,2124117,00.htm A local city chieftain could claim ownership of an internet site located in the USA and even capture their emails. As far as I am informed the censorship at some ISPs is still active but they claim no longer to be their mailhost. I was informed of this DNS forgery because of the collateral damage done. Several sites where censored and could only escape by changeing providers. At least one of the providers is bankrupt today. I dont know if censoring was the reason why.
How about alternative roots? ICANN does censor "XN--55QX5D.", "XN--FIQS8S." and "XN--IO0A7I." already. You must use alternative roots to exchange emails with people living in those domains.Unfortunately, they also censor "ENYO.".
That is the reason why :) Nevertheless I could see the site "http://www.enyo/" after adding "22.214.171.124 www.enyo enyo" to my /etc/hosts Maybe even could send you emails?
