Germany censors 3.000 domains, this censorship list even got leaked. See Liste indizierter Webseiten geleakt: Bundesprüfstelle bestätigt Netz-Sperren-Kritik wie Overblocking for more info. Sorry the blog is in German, please use Yandex Translate.

Ein findiger, anonymer Nerd hat jetzt die Hashwerte der veröffentlichten Liste zurückgerechnet und als BPjM-Leak veröffentlicht [Update: Uns wurde wegen des Links mit Klage gedroht. Wir haben den Link rausgenommen und unsere Position in einem extra Beitrag erklärt.].

German Government even censored this leak. All leaked list are deleted.

Do I misunderstand what censorship is, or this Tor project? When you look at Non-Western countries, for example Russia, you see a huge list of blocked domains.


OONI makes a pre-defined test sets, the result you've got means that this list of censored domains was not checked in that particular run(s) that gave you these results. You can make your own tests and check the list you're interested in.

UPDATE: see the bottom of this page https://explorer.ooni.torproject.org/about/ =)

Special thanks to:

the German Federal Foreign Office for funding OONI Explorer
