take it easy on the CP defense
Every other crime caught on tape is a hit television show ..... I'm just sayin

Child porn and child sexuality laws are awful. In the USA tens of thousands of men are sent to prison for having sex with people who are old enough to consent in the majority of the world, including Europe. People in USA are put into prison and labelled sex offenders for having sex with 16 and 17 year olds in some states, despite this being totally legal in other states. Standing by complacently while people have their lives ruined for things that are legal a few miles away is awful and shows only that you are a scared coward afraid of the government created stigma.

Child porn should be protected constitutionally as right to free speech, but this term has been redefined into nothingness by the government. It isn't even possible to defend the people who view child porn with out appearing to support paedophilia. The average person who is rabidly for locking up people who look at child porn and throwing away the key is basing their entire argument off of emotions and not logic, and when they do present logic it is only a facades because the statistics and studies they quote are made up by law enforcement and anti groups. 

I don't think Silk Road should become involved with child porn, there are already hidden services for that. I just can't stand to see moral warriors spreading their bullshit at the cost of innocent peoples lives, people who are overwhelmingly not dangers to children and who have as much a right to privacy and protection from censorship as anyone else.

The reality is, there is more than one issue here, and it all gets bundled up into one.

There was a great article about CP laws a while back, I wish I had a ref to it. Basic upshot was, the laws made sense when they were made. In the 60s/70s when child porn laws came on the books, it was an industry. Yes, an industry. You and I didn't have professional recording equipment. A camera that took pictures good enough to produce good porn was expensive.... you had adults being paid to rape children. It was a bad scene.

Now... CP has changed. Every fucking 8 year old has a cell phone with a camera. There are a FUCKTON of pictures of naked kids...taken by kids! In fact, some piece of shit prosecutor was actually threatening kids with CP charges because of pictures they took of themselves!

In my state, its legal to have sex with a 16 year old... which is much better than some other states where they seem to think a 16 year old is a child. However, if she took a picture of herself, and sent it to you...thats CP.

Its horrible what is done in the name of protecting children. It really makes me wonder how many "sex offenders" are actually molsters and rapists, and how many are just people caught by a technicality of the law.

But of course... the "number of sex offenders" is then used to justify more laws... and more punishments... truth really is stranger than fiction... it would be hard to write a situation this stupid. Hell, I could have been charged for getting drunk and taking a piss by the side of the road. WTF! 

I mean seriously... I can piss my pants, which is totally socially unacceptable, yet walk around in public with no problem. Pull up to the same tree or bush that people have been urinating on for a million years, and now you are a sex offender.

I almost got my nephew labeled as a sex offender, because at age 11 he pulled my daughter's pants down in an argument.  Not as any kind of sexual thing, but to tick her off.  She was four at the time.  My wife and I called some childcare 'hotline' for advice on how to deal with the issue, because it wasn't the first time that he had used this tactic to run her off.  The operator told us that if he was 12, he would have been obligated under law to report our nephew as a potential sex offender, which would have certainly caused a visit from Social Services.

I have no words to describe how stupid such a thing is... unbelievable!

Back to the topic... what's actually the point of us discussing this here? I mean, it's up to the owner(s) of SilkRoad to decide it, and as far as I know, s/he hasn't even asked our opinion on this matter.... (unless I've missed something).

If your point is just discussing how you think the ideal anonymous market should behave, and you don't think SilkRoad is being this ideal anonymous market of yours, then think about competing with them. Wink I realize it's not easy, but I guess it's more effective than discussing stuff here at least.

Take everything pedos post "behind seven proxies" with a grain of salt.

Hell, there is even a guide on hidden wiki on TOR how to lobby people into accepting pedos, how to post, what tone to use, which arguments to create etc.

They even created a political party in Denmark, good thing the founders were arrested on multiple child abuse charges though.

Some of them are deluded enough to think other people will accept their actions.
Might be their detachment from reality or just general mental disorders.
