1.5 Million stumble on child pornography


metro.co.uk

Up to 1.5million people in Britain are feared to have accidentally stumbled across images of child abuse online.

Four per cent of men and two per cent of women say have come into contact with such material, a survey has suggested.

Now i have been surfing the world wide web since 1998 and I have NEVER stumbled upon any form of child pornography.

I'm not even sure how that can happen unless you are actively searching for disturbing pornography, or am I being naive?

The numbers involved seem awfully high to me as well.

Anyway discuss....

You dont have to search for it to run into it. Especially on the deep net. That dose not mean you should not use the deep net. The deep net consist of %99.9999 of the internet. So much information, the good stuff witch is hidden from the majority of the public. Grate networking sites, activism, political information ect.... Check it out.

I can see how it can happen.... Back in the late 90's, my 5 yr old daughter tried to search for "girl pony."

I'll let you use your imagination on what the results returned.
Needless to say, she never opened any of the links because I was close by....but not every parent (sadly) is so attentive.

I find this hard to believe.

Like someone else mentioned- I have been online since the late 1990s (and BBS system from the 1980s) and I will readily admit to searching for Pornography (of the over 18 type) and I have NEVER, EVER ran across anything even questionable.

I probably have searched for more porno than there are dollars being printed by the FED (and thats ALOT) and have never seen anything illegal.

Now, Deep/Dark web may be another matter- But how many people actually have the skill to even acess it? My journeys there have yielded slow speeds and nothing illegal either (although I was mainly checking it out and dint spend much time there)

I call BS- This "study" will be cited to bring in more censorship online since the average Joe will believe that its sooo prevalent online.

I've done my research on the deep/dark net, but i'm yet too take the plunge. I know you can stumble across disturbing normal (is that the right word??) porn with a seemingly innocent Google search, but I've never seen any indecent images of children because of such a search, thank god.

I wonder if this sort of thing is what has caused google to restrice even further their content filtering.

Now if you want nudies, you have to tell google you want nudies. It won't just serve you images of grandmothers crocheting their wooly bits into snugly fuzzy warbles in the barn...

I've never 'happened' on any, and I know what sort of sick deviant ill-mannered stuff I look at. So. that's a relief.

Umm, I thought the dark-net/deep-net being 99.999999% of the real internet was just a /b/ meme.

Maybe when they get more than a wiki-page entry for a search engine I'll try again. too slow, pointless and .. I'm not after torture videos much either...

Good call on the censorship, I hadn't even thought about that. I'm still shocked.at the figure of 1.5 million, and that's just the United Kingdom!

Stumble upon

LOL

T

Tea

You don't stumble upon that stuff.

If you only visit subscription websites, you will never see it.

And non-subcription sites that you know have a 2257 statement and only go back and visit those sites it can be avoided altogether.

There is no such thing as an accident. Only varying degrees of negligence which indicate that one does not respect the safety of their families and their neighbors.

What a bunch of #ing bull #. I've not heard of any such thing but if it involves anything with children, the people involved should be prosecuted and then #ing shot. "Sick Assholes."

Deep/dark web is impossible to track. It runs on an onion router and through a series of everyones linked PCs.
I am sure its there- But the average person doesnt even have the skill to operate TOR, and to even get to deep web is a pain. Nobody gets there on accident.
Now, deep/dark has its purposes (legal) and will be a great alternative once the censors crack down on the internet. Right now its slow, cumbersome and pretty stupid.

-I totally imagine you can find everything there- But this article is about random people "stumbling upon" child porn which is total BS.

Oh yes, I agree with you on that. I think people usually stumble upon things which there always seems to be some intent.
What in the hell is wrong with some people lately?

Imagine you go to a site where users post content, in this case images. You don't have to go there with any bad intentions, but if the content is user driven who knows what will be posted and therefore you will see? Of course it's possible. It's unlikely but entirely possible.

I assume it's this situation or something similar that these people fall in to, such sites should have stricter moderation.

That's why IMHO people who are running websites without a 2257 statement should be fined until they are shut down. And user posted content should go through a verification process that respects the 2257 statement. And no I don't mean one of those sentences at the bottom that says everyone is 18. A verifiable active 2257 statement link that shows the address of who to contact who has verified the IDs. And none of this we are not responsible for the content. The web is a dangerous place. All who have a website should accept responsibility for their content by having an active 2257 link.

Users being able to automatically post their stuff is sloppy.

There needs to be ID verification by the website owner before it's public and posted.

You just never know today what your getting in to on line. We just rely on our antivirus and such to try to be safe on line with what our kid's and grand kids look at.

For those saying the have never run across it, I guess you are just lucky. I ran across an image once on pure accident while doing an image search on Photo Bucket. It freaked me out pretty bad, and wasn't sure exactly how to report it or to whom. The local police?
