How does 'Censorship??' tie into it? Has there been some? Or has there not been enough?
Unless Whatsapp or any other messaging app previews and approves every message, which is utterly impossible, these images can't be stopped.
All people can do is react, which O'Donovan has done.
How much Whatsapp can/will help the Gardai with their investigation is another question (If one is needed, perhaps O'Donocan knows who it is? I don't know if she does or not).

The sender of the message, in this instance, must be aware of her mobile phone number. I presume that number is in the public domain anyway because of her work as a local politician. My point relates to the lack of some in built filter that can detect such content and prevent it being sent. Facebook has these. I know that's a tenuous correlation.

How would an AI know what is legitimate or not? Not all communication with this content is malicious.
The only person to blame here is the sender, it is sexual harassment.
I think there are changes afoot. WhatsApp (Facebook) are attempting to stop fake news by stopping anyone from forwarding fake news now by stopping a person forwarding a message more than 6 times. If it's encrypted then how do they know what messages you have.or if they're fake, .? You could have a family gathering.. What about poor grandma, if she doesn't get her invite. 😢😢😂
Not sure, but they could be identifying frequently forwarded messages by looking at the encrypted version of the message possibly
