scarah2: I just want to make sure everyone has seen this buried subthread

We report child pornography to the NCMEC, as required by law.

Scroll down to markf's reply in particular. It's heavily implied that ponderosa121 and elaboration were reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Harry Potters Children.

I'm going to check innocence_jihad and if this isn't already there, I'm gonna crosspost it. Sorry if you see it twice, but I'm finding that a lot of people haven't lurked quite as aggressively as I have and haven't seen it.

I was thinking along those lines too. It occurred to me earlier today, what if some very brave selfless person basically handed themselves with the image to the police. Either we find out that such images are legal after all - or if not, perhaps the 30,000+ people opposed to this can turn their efforts against politicians (there's only been one case AFAIK where someone has been prosecuted under the new fictional child porn law, and that was someone who also had actual child porn - add to that the ambiguous age, and it being Harry Potter, such a case could generate quite a bit of publicity!)

Although obviously it's horrible for those two to be reported, when I'm sure they didn't want to be the sacrificial lambs...
