Throw him in jail and throw away the key..
It's time this weak goverment took a stand against this sort of person.
As "Hooner" said Stupid name suppression laws...
Tell the public, who he is, and that he just can't be trusted..
And, forget about, oh his family will suffer...
He doesn't care about that, so why should we....
Publish, his name, and the names of any further scumbags, who do things like this..
Besides, sometimes, later on, their name comes out anyway..
Time to do away with Name Suppression law...

Exactly.. Not with innocent children...
What,adults want to do, well, thats their own choice.
But, for the sake of all innocent children,everywhere, make their name published...Let the public know, who can't be trusted around innocent children....

Topic is pointless, nobody is going to agree sexual material with anyone under 18 should be legal, unless your Greg, so I don't see why this is even a post worthy topic.

The message is to stay anonymous, and watch your child porn at home and dont make it a public issue.

I have seen these articles published in the newspaper in a tiny corner near furniture ads, when i think it is a serious issue especially in the interests of protecting our children, from these unknowns.

Name suppression is given to those who can afford it, lets put it that way.

Nope read the sarcasm involved..... gees yes i would advocate for child predators with my real name.. man.. you are a real person, yet you are just so -.-

The media says it like this.

Theres A PEDOPHILE LOOSE in YOUR town,

BUT we wont tell you who it is, what we will say is we left him at home with his home d, laptop and internet and folders so he wont disturb the public with his child fetishes.

I am against name suppression especially if you are found guilty of the crime!

Oh dear. I see I haven't missed anything important while being away. You should sharpen up on your reading and comprehension skills sonny. Perhaps then you would not misinterpret what people write when it's crystal clear what they mean?

Perhaps you should get laid, understand the context of which the comment was contrived and piss off.

Also, read all of that person's posts while your at it.

Good day, buffalo soldier.

I have read that person's posts. Not all the time, but enough to know while I do not always agree with what she says, she still has her head screwed on straight. You on the other hand, I have read enough of your posts - about two - to know you have a screw loose.

And how you gonna make me piss off if I dont want to? How are you going to make this happen? Send an imaginary army to my doorstep to sort me out? Go for it. Perhaps you're gonna stalk me and try making life for me here on Topix unbearable? Knock yourself out! But on the off chance this does not happen... how then are you gonna get me to piss off?
