Before you write or call any of the ‘Official’ bodies set up to protect your children, it would be wise to remember one thing.
The standard response to any distressed and concerned adult survivor of CSA, is going to look very similar to the one reprinted below.
A reply to the numerous e-mails that were sent asking for help with trying to remove a particularly unpleasant WordPress Blog containing lurid stories and photographs of predatory Paedophiles.
This nasty rogues gallery, which was set up in the Nederlands, contains the awful stories, complete with pictures of the perpetrators, which can act as both a ‘trigger’ for any abuse victim who happens to view it, and a voyeuristic celebration for the supporters of Child Rapists.
I for one, cannot understand the workings of a mind which finds any of the subject matter on such blogs useful, or helpful to any victim of physical or sexual abuse.
I also cannot understand, why we are being constantly told to report, such cases to the relevant authorities, only to be met with a such a universally faceless and obstructive response when we do.

Thank you for your email received on 30.01.2013.
We do apologise that you did not find our previous response satisfactory.
It is with regret that we have had to inform you that we are unable to report directly to Twitter or ‘wordpress’ as this does not relate to current child protection issues, it is not within our remit to take action.
We do understand that you have strong views in respect of the information being displayed on these sites therefore we urge you to contact them again.
It might also be helpful to get some support from other likeminded individuals who would support your petition to have these bloggers sites removed.
It would be beneficial if you contacted the appropriate agencies to report your concerns as advised in our email response earlier.
