Funny, when its money and phishing which costs these peeps money, they are all over it in a combined effort.

When it comes to child porn however? Oh well......

What? You're saying they should work harder to make child porn more available?

Up next, Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Bank of America will team up to get rid of the Bubonic Plague, open sewers, no voting rights for women, and other extremely topical issues.

Welcome to the party, fellas!

I guess we can end the discussion (since we agree on it) that this is simply a case of Pandora's Box, meaning the internet directly. It is a wild beast, great and beautiful in some ways, terrifying and sad in others and we cannot put it back in it's cage......

On a side note, the things I have seen which I wish I hadn't, on the internet, have made me a complete misanthrope.


So the internet is literally like any major city, sites to see, things to buy, posters and adds showing the latest and greatestthings to see/buy/do. Places to meet up and talk about subjects that you share interest in if you take the interest and moments to find them.

And like any major city there is crime, vandalism, 'violent' sex ( rape becoming child porn), black markets to get stolen good, organized crime which will sell you things for stuff like id fraud.

Only difference is its easier for everyone, including the police, to find the shadier parts of town.

Very good point and I should have been more specific, which I will now even though I think that nothing could still be done as you state.

There has been in the past to create a .xxx domain extension and to force register domains that contain porn pics etc to use this rather than .com. So say sex.com would instantly own sex.xxx and sex.com would push to sex.xxx

This would have allowed and been one of several steps into helping curb at least regular pornography. But as you pointed out, it may all be futile for places such as 4chan or newsgroups which really are the start of all this anyways or where it is legal in one area but not here etc.

The idea that the gov won't even try at any level just seems odd to me? Most likely due to no return on investment $$$

I dunno, the state is insane about child porn. People think what happened to megaupload is scary? Child porn is probably the harshest, where the least needs to be proved and the punishments are harshest.
Rightfully so in most cases, but you see many times that this goes wrong, far more than in other areas of law. There's reason for it, but the internet makes it stickier. This stuff is legal some places, and every 16 year old girl with a cell phone has sent pictures she shouldn't have. Of course, this is why police really concentrate on below 13 or 14, too.

When I think about it, there are so many ridiculous cases (like the not-uncommon-enough case of an 18 year old high school senior and his also-high school girlfriend), but I saw so many disgusting things in the year I spent doing criminal law. Like, scum of the Earth gross things. Please-let-me-punch-that-guy-in-the-face gross.

Not sure how you compare those. Phishing is a very obvious thing. Child porn is not. Computers can't even tell if a file is porn, let alone underage. And perfectly acceptable porn in Italy is underage and illegal in the US.

Child porn is a very strange, very difficult thing. It's very hard to define universally, and if humans have trouble with this no way could Google, Microsoft, Facebook and BoA team up with a way to eradicate it.

But filtering out spoofed emails? Man, it's shocking that no one has written an simple program that's been widely adopted to do this yet.
