Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Arizona's Revenge Porn Law Over First Amendment Concerns
First Amendment rights are way too important to throw away over such a trivial issue. Images of nude people or people engaged in sexual acts aren't that big of a deal. If pictures are shared online in a way which invades a person's privacy or damages their reputation, then there are already laws to deal with that sort of thing. No new laws are needed to deal with this over-hyped minor nuisance.
The law contains no exception for "newsworthy disclosures" and requires "explicit permission" for any posting of images, etc. of a "person in a state of nudity or engaged in specific sexual activities." While this law would have made revenge porn illegal, it also made plenty of protected speech a criminal act.

UK's Crazy New Porn Laws!
This is pretty funny, but the important point to make is that governments should stay the fuck out of porn! Thank god this is the UK and not the USA, but it's scary when governments decide to tell us what we can and cannot watch!

Governments should stay out of people's personal lives to the greatest extent possible. This just sounds like another totally unnecessary governmental intrusion to me. Something done to us by people who think they know what's good for us and how we should live our lives. Such complete arrogance is hard to tolerate. I'm glad this is happening in the UK and not the USA, but there are plenty of people in the USA who hate freedom enough to want to enact laws just like this here!

UK Bans Some Forms Of Pornography
Funny list of banned sex acts! :laugh:
This only bans people from making various kinds of porn in the UK, but people can actually watch the same acts as long as the porn was made somewhere else. This kind of law makes no sense. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!
:roll2:
BTW, I think that Cenk might really be into donkey sex! :eek2:

UK Porn: Sung to the tune of an old Bruce Springstein song: "Porn in the USA! We like porn in the USA!" (repeat a bunch of times over and over). A couple lines should mention that Cenk likes donkey sex and that such an interest is okay in the USA because we believe in FREEDOM!

STUDY On Male Solo Sex Sessions Around The World :pac:
This really isn't much of a study since it's unreasonable to assume that viewing time correlates to the length of time required to ejaculate. In any case, the answer to such an inquiry really isn't something worth of a scientific study, but the discussion in this video is amusing.

Marriage rate declines with porn use? :shrug:
Interesting theories about the effects of pornography on society. One way or the other it's all just speculation, but the key concept here is that society should not impose unnecessary limitations on individuals. We all deserve freedom of choice!

Survey: 1 in 10 teens fear porn addiction
To the extent that this survey even accurately reflects the actual fears of teens in the United Kingdom (let alone anywhere else), the underlying reason that kids may have developed this irrational and exaggerated fear has nothing to do with the availability of porn online (or elsewhere) and everything to do with the prevalence of media messages warning against the dangers of 1) addiction and 2) porn, alone and in combination. This little report comes complete with a few words from a pseudo-expert who adds her blessing to the misinformation herein. Porn is not really a big deal and although kids have better things to do than look at porn, a real and ever-present danger is misinformation presented by pseudo-experts as we see here.

A crafty haxxor releases an infectious worm which fills up unused sectors of the hard drive with child pornography from hidden sources in the dark-net.

Then after a certain amount of time, when a sufficient number of people have been running the payload, the worm undeletes all the child-porn.

Chaos ensues.

Why would chaos ensue? There's a legal catch-22 which would put anyone in such a situation in a major bind. BTW, it's been reported that this type of scheme is quite common and that somewhere between 10 and 40 percent of computers in the USA have CP on them and that almost none of the owners of these computers have a clue. If you think that "Oh, I'd realize it if CP were on my computer," then you are an idiot who knows next to nothing about how computers work!

What Do You Do When Preserving Evidence Is Labeled 'Possession' And Destroying It Is A Felony?

It's illegal for him to continue possessing the images. So you can't advise him to do nothing (and keep breaking the law).

The smart thing for him to do would be to destroy the hard drive (if I could, I would recommend swisscheesing it with a drill press).

But tampering with evidence is illegal under both Texas and federal law. Is it a crime to destroy the hard drive? To advise the client to do so?

Fighting Toddler 'Porn Addiction,' UK Lawmakers Demand Porn Sites Include Age Checks Or Face Closure :smack:
This article provides a typical example of how fake facts are used to push an agenda. The reality is that there is no porn addiction problem! Nothing needs to be done about a problem that simply doesn't exist. We already have far too many laws created to solve non-existent problems.
The UK's latest push is being propped up by a flood of recent scary headlines across the UK proclaiming that the country has a porn addiction problem among around a tenth of the nation's 12- and 13-year-olds. In fairly typical media fashion, the stories proclaiming this fact don't really bother to dissect the claims or hunt down the survey's origins.

Always reality check whenever outrageous claims are made. Far more often than not, the claims are entirely bogus, exaggerated, and/or simply made up!
