Teen warns she has more lewd AFL photos-Censorship?


news.ninemsn.com.au

“Every single conversation that a player’s had with me, text messages, anything that’s bad, I have on them,” she says.

The teenager also refutes comments from St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt that he doesn’t know her.

She says she has proof that she was with the Saints players at the time the nude photos were taken, despite Riewoldt’s insistence that they were taken by his teammate Sam Gilbert last year.

The story is not what is concerning..
It's the talk it's generating in the media and within government..

Last night, a Federal Court judge ordered the photos be removed and Facebook closed the girl's account shortly after 8pm (AEDT). It applies until a hearing on December 23


They are already talking about ways to censore what can or can't be posted on the internet..

Did they fail with Wikileaks as an excuse and are now looking at this??

Early days but already plenty of talk with the courts already closing her facebook site..

Edit to add: This is Australia and the AFL is our Aussie Football league..

I don't know about you guys, but I would be willing to support SOME mode of censorship on the internet...

I am not talking about removing sites such as ATS, or INFOWARS, etc.

I am merely talking about the fact that somebody, right now, could post a picture of me sleeping naked with my inflatable Miley Cyrus doll and post it on Facebook, and there's NOT A DAMN THING I CAN DO ABOUT IT.

hehe... Those that know me, know I am just getting my point accross.

I agree but do you trust the Government to merely stop at things like that once they have the laws in place?

One thing I notice about those that write the laws is that they ALWAYS make them vague..
Now why is that?
If laws were clearly written then we wouldn't need so many lawyers and judges arguing points of law.

Well his team mate took the photo.. what I want to know is why a man is taking a photo of another man who's lying in bed holding his genitals. I haven't seen the photo personally but I know what it contains.

Well that's what they say..
Personaly I find it odd as you say..

Also the team mate, Sam, was asked to delete the pics.
And how did the teen get them??

She says she didn't get it from his computer so I'm not sure.
It was taken a year ago in Miami though.

I think the reason facebook closed down her account is that the evidence has not been proven true...

she just facebooked a bunch of info that can easily destroy a persons credibility and future

Why didn't she go to court?

Why did she wait a year?

Why is it so important now, isn't she damning herself as well?

She wants MONEY and FAME it seems like

No... No sir I do not. I thought of this before writing my post, of course. I do agree with you; the government would not stop at protecting you from others posting embarassing pictures, that would only be the bait/pre-curser to what they actually want.

Here we have a predicament. We demand our own privacy, and they munipulate our intention to expand their reign of techno-power.

It's similar to what is going on with fire-arms right now... all sorts of strange incidents that seem 'fake' or 'off' ... perfectly constructed to demonstrate the faults of the legality of owning fire-arms. (Not that I am for , or against it)

Bottom line: Seems to me, the Mass Media is using a little hollywood to have us beg them to change the very laws that protect us, our privacy, and our security.

*cough* 911.

Facebook would have closed her account because it's illegal to post pornographic images on it.

Job security would be my first guess. Exploiting them to their benefit would be my second.

I haven't seen the pics so I can't say I know where they were taken..
St Kilda says Miami but the teen hasn't said where, only that she was there..

But from what I hear it's not like someone took some sneaky pics.
They actually posed..

Yeah, they posed for the camera man (whom was Sam Gilbert). It was taken in a bedroom in Miami last year, as said by the captain of The Saints football team (can't remember his name, I stay clear of AFL - never liked it). It could just be damage control and they're making up things but I doubt it since he also said he was angry at Sam for not deleting the photo after it was taken and will likely cause tension within the team.

I still don't understand why a grown man is taking photos of another grown man holding his penis while he lies naked in bed in Miami. -_-"

This is why you don't need a FB account, or anything else that creates a solidified online entity that is "you" that the government can track and censor or otherwise punish.


Anonymity.

It's for patriots.

Oh I agree with that..
Some companies even check you FB profile as part of selection for a job..
I keep telling my sons that but who listens to silly dad.?

A photo of a nude Riewoldt with teammate Zac Dawson and another one of teammate Nick Dal Santo were shot by Gilbert and allegedly stolen from his computer.

The Saints skipper admitted he was upset at Gilbert's breach of trust but was confident it would not affect their standing as teammates.

"This photo was taken on a holiday when I got out of bed over 12 months ago by a teammate that I trust and I asked that it would be deleted then and there. Clearly it wasn't and I'm bitterly disappointed by my teammate," Riewoldt said.

For the aussie members..

But what were 3 footy players doing naked in the same room?
I for one do not sleep naked when with mates..

What worries me about this is since when did the Australian Government pass laws that enable a judge to order content to be removed from an interet site and order the website to close the account of an account holder? What is this law and was as this done in what session of pariliment? of which year?

No judge would have ordered this had it been photos of nude female athletes.

The blokes concerned will probably find a way to make money out of it anyway, the odd television appearance on the off talk show.

Where is the problem here apart from the judges action???

cheers

Exactly..These footy clowns posed for the pics..That's known..

It's the media and government talking about censoring internet content that bothers me..

It's sort of like that South Park episode where the kids are caught smoking and blame it on the tobacco companies instead of taking responsibility themselves and because of that the tobacco companies get bycotted.

The blame for the photos is being shifted on the girl for some reason when all she did was upload them (much like all Wikileaks did was upload the documents, not write or leak them).
