Subject: Child porno and spam
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed
While I am opposed to child porno as it is really yucky and disgusting,
I warn all of you who have computers with email connections.
Many of you have possibly gotten porno spam. What is the difference
between porno spam and porno spam that can get you put away for 3-5
years? The age of the porno subjects. That is, it is certainly
possible that child porno can be spammed to you. In addition, if your
computer is not protected, your computer could be taken over by one of
those worm programs and used as a distribution hub.
Thus, I suggest that we all withhold judgement about child porno until
In addition, it is disgusting and reprehensible that the mental illness
of some poor schmuck which led him to these very disgusting crimes
should be spammed onto our mailing list. I do NOT SUPPORT outing people
with no conviction.
It is just as disgusting to OUT someone falsely, maybe more so, as to do
the original crime.
