They removed entire groups because just the group name sounded bad.
Easynews,Newshosting and UsenetServer are among many other responsible providers who have opted to be members of the Internet Watch Foundation - the IWF's purpose is to remove criminal content, primarily newsgroups that harbor child porn, from the Usenet. Anyone who really cares about the Usenet and loves it for what it is knows that there is no place for that kind of garbage anywhere. Before @swintec attacks other providers for censorship, it ought to known for anyone who is interested that Blocknews and UsenetNow both take no responsibility and openly support newsgroups that knowingly contain and are only online to spread child pornography.
Any decent provider filters child porn.
