Interesting point. In many, if not most, countries the very act of
accessing such material is illegal. Yet, McCarron, in his post of 25
June, admitted on this public email list that he now had difficulty
accessing "the more serious categories, such as child porn and
violent sexual material".

That strikes me as stupid. Certainly it is not "low key" as you say.
