I'm afraid you are missing a few crucial points.

First of all child sexual abuse[1] and child sexual abuse images[2] are
not prohibited in any way by censorship since it is an act executed by
an adult towards a child in real life. At most censorship[6] might
prevent child sexual abuse images from being shared amongst
pedophiles[3] but it would not in any way prevent or prohibit pedophilic

There are ways to prohibit child sexual abuse like Prevention Project
Dunkelfeld[4] and Circles of Support and Accountability[5] but they are
completely unrelated to censorship.

Secrecy of corrospondence[7] and anonymously[8] using the Internet is
not an endorsement of child sexual abuse in any way and you are wrong to
hold a project like the Freedombox accountable for such behaviour.

For more infomation I suggest you read the following wikipedia articles:
