Positive alternative
I like the idea of the positive alternative advertising for those searching out terrorist material. I imagine more journalists than anyone will come across it, but it's good to know the option is there to provide a counter narrative.

When it comes to automatically searching out terrorist material though, I hope that that process will have some human oversight, as automated tools of the past have proved to be far from perfect.
