Leaving Babble for awhile
Why should such a thread be in the "mens" forum. Is there a mens forum? If there is I suggest it be closed.
Well, from my perspective, because this topic that you AGAIN insist on derailing another thread with IS EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE to some.
Take it to a properly titled thread for that discussion, please, so I can ignore it, and so you can stop derailing other threads.
It's hardly appropriate to derail stargazer's goodbye thread.
I don't give a fuck really. If Stargazer wanted to post some inocuous "I am taking a break" type "see you all later" thread, then she could have. She chose not to. She instead used the opportunity to chastise me, as you are doing now, and I will speak both to that, and to the issues she raised, especially if people start saying that I don't have a right to. I have a right to defend myself and make my arguements in support of that defence, both to her and to anyone else who decides to intervene on her behalf.
I don't really care if its offensive to some. Others on the board post a lot of things about the Israeli/Palestinain conflict that I find extremely offensive and in bad taste. Countless times I have seen threads about Israeli violence derailed by endless discussions of the "Suicide Bombers" but I tackle those arguements as they come up. I don't try and "formalize consent" on the basis of the fact that what they say is personally offensive to me.
If we curtailed board content on what is "offensive to some" there would be no discussion, just a bunch of sychophants appologizing to each other.
Doesn't seem to be too damaging considering one of the men, caught in this sweep, worked for the City of Delta, and has several prior CONVICTIONS from 1997. Moreover, considering the heinious nature of the crime, its long term impacts, the sentence durations seem hardly adequate.
Who are we talking about now? Surely we are not talking about the thousands of charges laid during "Operation Ore", and the 33 suicides that have resulted, and the later discovery that the police evidence against many of the accused was stolen credit card numbers found in the possession of the purveyors of the child abuse porn?
I am also very curious to know what the Attorney General of Ontario wont let court reporters look at the case file of Ayad Mejid, reputedly a "terrorist" and a "pedophile". An interesting correlation between the political and the criminal in this case, to be sure.
Seems pretty up to date and factually correct to me.
You are wrong.
The Criminal Code has been amended since that article was written.
For example, most of what the article calls "child erotica" is now definitely illegal, according to the current definition of "child pornography" which you yourself quoted.
You see, it's easy to cut and paste. What's harder is to read and understand.
Take it to an appropriately titled thread that I can ignore, K.
I really don't care for the subject.
Hey, I was just responding to you. You expect me to start another thread to do that?
And for someone who doesn't "care for the subject" you certainly seem to have a lot to say about it.
