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.

a) They think kids aren't cluey and curious enough to seek out porniness? I know I was skulking around newsagencies trying to get a look at the pinups in Australian Women's Forum when I was aged between 9 and 16. Really, the supervision problem comes down to parents or guardians or dodgy security on the sites and places where porn is available.

The major pornographers have no fear of prosecution. Why? Because those responsible for enforcing the law fear the pornographers more than they fear the mothers and fathers of America, and they care more about the hawkers of pornography than they do our children.

b) Are slash writers technically "pornographers?" The way that letter sounds, it's like we're a bunch of leering old ladies hanging around Knockturn Alley trying to sell our dodgy wares. Last time I checked, due to copyright issues and general fandom etiquette, no one was making money out of this.

We're major pornographers now? AWESOME.

c) I wonder if Donald E. Wilmon's kids were going through his bedside table looking for copies of Hustler while he was writing that letter...
