Since Friday, another news release from the Düsseldorf district authority has been available. In this release, the authority justifies the blocking attempts by referring to disgusting content on the pages blocked. The allegation that the authority has been wrongly declaring the authors of protest e-mails to be right-wing extremists is rebutted: “There may be many e-mail senders who want to defend the Internet’s liberty on principle. But the content of many other Internet messages clearly demonstrates – by style and content – that the authors show right-wing extremist thinking. In those cases in which my employees have been threatened directly […], the prosecuting attorney will investigate.” For some discussions on this press release, have a look at the authority’s web forum.
