In a separate topic a poster announced that he had poisoned a block chain by inserting "illegal content", presumably kiddie porn, into it. Regardless of whether the guy is for real or not, the issue is valid. Whenever information gets copied without review this possibility exists. For example, you could tweet a viral picture and it could have "illegal" porn embedded in it and soon it is on millions of handhelds all over the internets. Hey, its not a truck, its not something you can just dump something on, err actually, maybe you can.

Why not talk about it in the thread you read it in? instead of starting something new?
