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.

That third quoted paragraph has some interesting points, too, when emphasized...

depicts an image that is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in graphic [...] sexual intercourse [...] AND such depiction lacks SERIOUS literary, ARTISTIC, political, or scientific VALUE

Which brings it right back to Eric!LJ's Abuse response that Ponderosa121's image was removed not for child pornography but for obscenity and lacking 'serious artistic merit'. (And LJ has drawn a line between technical merit (pretty brush strokes, or lack thereof) and artistic merit... whatever that is.

(Which makes me wonder if, in her picture, Harry and Snape were having their encounter not on a bed but say... on a trampoline draped in the British flag.... if that would've been meritorious enough.)
