Is the source genuine?

However censorships like this aren't really outstanding, I mean many countries are trying to block off certain contents far worse than these.

The one linked in my first comment is guaranteed to be as it's a fairly major publication, while the second one seems genuine, I don't know for sure.

Well, one would think that Germany was one of the countries that is advanced enough to avoid such backwards politics..

What fake websites? Explain yourself.

You're not even quoting properly..
Do you honestly even care? Because it doesn't seem that way. If I were a German I would be completely outraged right now. It's YOU guys that need to stand up for your own rights. Outsiders can only do so much. Censorship is pretty much NEVER good, especially not when the censorship is secret. We already see examples of misuse in the list, wouldn't it likely continue?

I don't particularly care whether it's effective or not, I think the basic idea that a government like Germany's decides to go (to such lengths) for censorship is something to think about for a moment.

Yes, omg yes. That alone is very scary.
"I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m ****ing ******ed but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding." - Guuse

well I typed it in, if you want to point out the typo, go ahead lol.

I did not read either of the articles but what I guessed by looking over it is that neocities are being censored and journalist are being threatened for publishing child pornography to silence them?

Edit:
Also, if this was so outrageous major german websites would have published and spammed social media with this, as it is already readable on the websites you posted and germans can access that freely.

And while we are at it,
the british secret service has such a big influence, they can even alter the likes of a facebook post and other media **** etc lol

Censoring history?
Wat, Schrödingers List is being shown in TV every year, N24 and ntv are spamming WW2 documentations and views from all over the world.
WW2 is also taught in all german schools - without any changes to make it less sad.

I cannot look into the list, but germany also has the NDP which is a nazi group and gets a fair share of votes (tho not enough to do anything anyway).

Mostly correct, but Neocities isn't censored, because they decided to remove the list.

Stuff doesn't blow up by itself.. You can start by sharing it with your friends.

The websites described in the article emoriam linked are pretty much the same as those from the article that lifebaka linked.

Please tolerate my ignorance/stupidity but I really neither see nor understand the issue here. What is so outraging? Censorship is so common and why does a "list" like this invoked the rage in you?

On the issue of censorship in general and not just limited to Germany... the issue in Singapore right now (where I live, yes I'm asian hi) is that our National Library Board took down several children books that are deemed inappropriate because of the gay-related content (one is about two male penguins raising a baby penguin) and now there are a lot of criticism and rallies here. As far as I know the issue isn't known worldwide yet... Now would you consider that another advanced country that embraced the so-called "backwards politics"?

Doesn't address my question. Where are the fake sites?

It's in part due to the fact that I live in Europe myself and they are a pretty big force here in EU. I would absolutely hate for this kind of politics to migrate to the EU.

And yes, I would consider Singapore's censorship of gay literature to be almost equally outrageous. Not to mention the completely ludicrous anti-gay politics going on in Russia.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817
