I really like the way you took one word and extrapolated an entire argument from it, instead of the spirit of it.

Then when this subreddit descended on this person ON MASS to make a misguided point you act like its a joke and that you are better people for it?

"Oh my god, someone linked to this article as a "really good argument" for legalizing child porn. You know, to help catch the child rapists." <- If you expended any effort at all at reading the actual article instead of just reacting you would have seen that point 2 & 3 are actually very pertinent.

"gross nerds care about" <- You are the one making a huge deal out of misunderstanding a statement. Also, more ad hominem? Can you guys not do better?

"Yes, I'm going to "think of the children" because I'm a reasonable human being not a selfish, cynical, thoroughly mistaken asshole." <- Attacking the person and not his argument. Fucks sake, how stupid are you? (You see what I did there?) It is an awful blight, that is NOT the argument, it is not child porn is generally okay as long as it does not interrupt what we want. Try reading the argument again, here i'll help you:

"Child porn is just an issue trotted out to scare the masses into accepting monitoring and policing of internet usage that exceeds what, in the US, would be protected under search and seizure" He (or she) is saying that IN THIS CASE it is being used as a false cry to try and expand the governments ability to monitors its citizens.

"They're pandering to Reddit's NSA paranoia now. Perfect." <- Because it cant be a coherent argument? Also, just because you are organised into a mob and have to have all the ills of the internet pointed out to you does not mean that this comment was a "they". It was one user.

Look at this. Stop your knee jerk reaction of trying to mock me or trying to come up with more ingenious ways of belittling me. THINK. READ. You have taken something and not understood it, you have taken ONE WORD and turned it into an entire argument and then you have spent your time and effort calling this person a pedophile and a shitlord and other increasingly offensive things.

This subreddit was built to be the touch stone of reddit, to call users out on their bullshit, racism, hatred, homophoia. In all of this, do you not see that this subreddit has become a breeding group of its own hatred and self superiority?

I can't get past the first sentence that says to focus on the "spirit" of their argument. WHY WON'T ANYONE RECOGNIZE THEIR ~SPIRIT~???

Oh!

Nah,

But I'll leave your tirade of grandeur up to be eroded at by the winds of time.

One of the arguments they give for legalizing CP is that if you're wearing google glass while taking a walk through the park, and you happen to see a child being raped, you'd then be guilty of possessing CP and wouldn't be able to call the police without fear of prosecution. What...?

That part was the slipperiest of slippery slopes.

>The rapist notices you and laughs, knowing that you can’t do anything. If you were to call the police and offer to be a witness to the rape taking place before you, you would lose your job, children, and house over the worse crime you have just committed. As you struggle in panic to delete any and all imagery that could be used to convict the child rapist, hoping that nobody was able to make a copy, you see another person coming into view of the rapist and reacting just like you did.

Seriously?? And then, out of the two examples they provide of proof that people who simply try to report CP get wrongly arrested, one "source" was a forum post on Slashdot. -_-

It isn't just an argument, it was their leading one. How far does your head have to be up your ass to not only think to write that shit, but start with it?

Such a weird super specific example that isn't even remotely plausible. I can't even imagine what planet that author lives on.

The author is Rick Falvinge, founder of the Swedish Pirate Party, which defended The Pirate Bay against police raids, so you know Reddit is going to eat that shit up.

Yes there definitely isn't any exploitation of children going on it's all part of a conspiracy for the government to throttle your interbutts or whatever the fuck these gross nerds care about

bonus: an actual pedophile starts posting pedo-copypasta in the child comments! Good work reddit you championed the right cause yet again!

Child porn is not just that, if it even is that. It is an evil and child pornographers and users are constantly using more sophisticated technology to access it to avoid getting caught- ie. tor. It's not about free speech or piracy or whatever the hell. It really is an awful blight on our society and corrupt and sex offender politicians do not change that. Yes, I'm going to "think of the children" because I'm a reasonable human being not a selfish, cynical, thoroughly mistaken asshole.

Bahaha, this is so rich, I almost don't want to report it. Nice edit, by the way, that completely makes up an entirely different point from what you originally said, which was:

>Child porn is just an issue trotted out to scare the masses into accepting monitoring and policing of internet usage that exceeds what, in the US, would be protected under search and seizure.

As in, that's all that the controversy behind child porn is about. It's just an issue that the government completely fabricated in order to control us!

now they keeps messaging me saying that no-one takes paedophilia more seriously than them but everything from email filters has used the "excuse of child porn" and how dare I not I just comment on in /r/worldnews to be torn apart by logic. BUT MAH INTERNET POINTS. Also, so much paedo apologia they are conveniently not replying to and condemning instead of chasing me down for comment. Poor little confused shitllord.

In reply to /u/shawaddywaddy on "David Cameron's aide on child internet policy has been arrested for child pornography":

None of those polices are used to stop pedophiles, who could be caught using conventional means. This guy was a face-man for big brother, and no less likely to be a pedophile than anyone else.
