Hi, I've been lurking around forums and recently I've seen many postings of inappropriate material in places where large amounts of minors access and can view these images, including myself.
Whether or not you think the material being posted is inappropriate matters to no one. What matters is: are any laws being broken ?
If the site is breaking the law of the country where its server is being hosted,then you should report them to the relevant authorities.
If the site is breaking a law which is universal (such as child pornography) - report them asap to the authorities regardless of where the server is hosted.
If they are not breaking any laws, then you are wasting your time, you should consider whether or not you believe there should be a law pertaining to your issue, and follow whatever steps in your country/state that a civilian should take to bring possible legal proposals to the local governing bodies and whatnot.
Inappropriate material is inappropriate material.
What nonsense - who is to determine what is inappropriate or not ? What is perfectly natural to one person (example video games with gore) may be deemed inappropriate by someone else.
If the entire web were family friendly, it would be a much better place… and people would be the better for it.
Again, who is to determine what is family friendly or not ? For example if a family consists of 2 people, a married couple both over the age of 21, legally a porn site is family friendly towards that specific family.
Every country has laws to cover these issues (yes its true many of these laws need updating for the digital age) - but in the end its the laws of the country/state which matter and nothing else.
I think people are mixing up their moral values with legal obligations. I may not agree with the content of some sites out there, but I will fully support their right to publish that content, once they are not breaking any laws.
