SADLY TRAGICALLY LAST YEAR - EUROPE ECLIPSED the United States as the top hosting location for child abuse material on the open web -

According to a report by Inhope, a group that coordinates child abuse, hotlines around the world. Within Europe, the Netherlands led the list.

THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - is the eternal and exclusive ownership of every student in the world - rises to pay respects to :

Sam Daily Times : ''The Voice Of The Voiceless'' - the Master Global Publication of every single Leader, Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world - in sublime service to Mankind.
IN A WORLD EXPLODING WITH THE IMAGERY - 45 million photos and videos of child sexual abuse were reported last year alone.

The open web is a freewheeling exposure where the underdog task of confronting the predators falls mainly to a few dozen nonprofits with small budgets and outsize determination.

IN LATE NOVEMBER - THE MODERATOR of three highly trafficked websites posted a message titled : ''RIP''. It offered a convoluted explanation for why they were left with no choice but to close.

The unnamed moderator thanked over 100,000 ''brothers'' who had visited and contributed to the sites before their demise, blaming an ''increasingly intolerant world'' that did not allow children to ''fully express themselves''.

In fact forums on the sites had been bastions of illegal content almost since their inception in 2012, containing child sexual abuse photos and videos.

The sites managed to survive so long because the Internet provides enormous cover for sexual predators. Apps, social media platforms and video games are also riddled with illicit material, but they have corporate owners - like Facebook and Microsoft - that can monitor and remove it.

I REPEAT: In a world exploding with the imagery - 45 million photos and videos of child sexual abuse were reported last year alone - the open web is a freewheeling expanse where the underlying task of confronting the predators falls mainly to few dozen nonprofits with small budgets and outsize determination.

Several of these groups, including a child exploitation hotline in Canada hunted the three sites across the Internet for years but could never quite defeat them.

The website records show, were led by an experienced computer programmer who was adept in staying one step ahead of his pursuers - in particular, through the services of American and other tech companies with policies that can be used to shield criminal behavior.

But the Canadian hotline, known as the Canadian Center for Child Protection, developed a tech weapon of its own, a sophisticated tool to find and report illegal imagery on the web.

When the sites found the tool directed at them, they fought back with a similar campaign, sending emails to the Canadian government and others with unfounded claims of ''grave operational and financial corruption'' against the nonprofit.

It wasn't enough. The three sites were overwhelmed by the Canadian tool, which had sent more than  one million notices of illegal content to the companies keeping them online. And just recently they were compelled to surrender.

''It's been a wonderful 7 years and we would have loved to go for another 7,'' the sites moderator wrote in the final post, saying they had closed location because ''antis,'' short for ''anti-pedophiles'' were ''hunting us to death with unprecedented zeal.''

The victory was cheered by groups fighting online child sexual abuse, but there were no illusions about the enormous undertaking that remained.

Thousands of other sites offer anybody with a web browser access to illegal and depraved imagery of children, and unlike with apps, no special software or downloads are required.

The three sites had hidden their tracks for years using the services of Cloudflare, an American firm that provides companies with cyberprotection.

They also found a hosting company, Novogara, that gave them safe harbour on the Netherlands - a small country with a robust web business and laws that are exploited by bad actors.

Cloudfare's general counsel said that the company had cooperated with the nonprofits and law enforcement and cut ties with the sites seven times in all, as they altered their web addresses to evade targeting. A spokesman for Novogara said the company had complied with Dutch laws.

The Dutch police say they do not have the resources to play what is essentially an endless game of  whack-a-mole with these companies, according to Arda Gerkins, a Dutch senator who heads Medpunt Kinderporno, a child abuse hotline.

The serving of this advance research on The State of Societies and The World, continues. The World Students Society thanks author Gabriel J.X. Dance and Micahael H Keller, New York.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Law Enforcement, Nonprofits, Students, Professors and  Teachers of the World.
