Child pornography, man - that stinks. Get rid of it, get rid of all of it.
I'll miss the good adult, legal porn but get rid of it...

Look at the "law" that was recently introduced (and finally shot down ) that attempted to stop "sexually suggestive" dance routines by cheerleader teams here in Tx. Someone finally got smart and asked the question as to who's standards would be used? The "dirty old man's", the Preacher, or the Muslim?
Any and all movies, series and media that have real or simulated sexual activitiy, nudity or sexualy tinted language would, by this provision in the Childrens Safety Act 2005, be classified as pornographic material and with this would cause the media industry to having to follow the same guidelines and regulations as the porn industry.
CENSORED BY US GOVERNMENT
18 USC 2257
Yes, that is correct. The things that used to be here, the very funny things that you want to see, have been made retroactively illegal by the US government, in a side-handed attack on the pornography industry.
The government is mandating that we meet certain bookkeeping requirements, ones impossible to meet for this site. Never mind that those requirements do not actually gain the public anything. This is the strongest attack on free speech since the passage of the CDA, and oddly, the media seems to have hardly noticed. The penalty for not abiding by these bookkeeping requirements is five years prison.
The regulations were promulgated by Alberto Gonzales, US Attorney General appointed by George Bush. If you voted for Bush, this is your fault. If you think this country is free, you are sadly mistaken. No nation has freedom when it is run by religious zealots.
Regulations effective 24 June 2005.
