Using Child Porn to erode our rights.

Comcast is changing it's policy for keeping user records from 31 days to 180. They are doing this behind the veil of it helping to curtail child porn. So, the rest of us, who trafficking pictures of little Billy are now being logged as well. Reminds me of all the 9/11 rhetoric floating around. Besides, retaining Users info isn't going to fix the problem. It's not that hard, and never will be, to exist online without leaving a trace you were there... Think about it. All this is doing, like the war on drugs, is forcing everything farther underground. Why not address why child porn is so enticing to some in the first place? Could it be fostered by a culture that both allows sexual freedom and condemns it in the same breath? That's just scratching the surface of a much more heated and complicated debate.
The article goes on to quote some ass-clown from Texas as saying that "the policy of keeping Internet records only 31 days was "almost criminal" in an age of rampant online crimes targeting children." Once again, fuck everyone else, let's get that almost statistically insignificant amount of people who are trading child porn. I know that easy for me to say... But at some point isn't it all about the greater good? Isn't that why we're fighting a war? A few people die to save the rest of us? Well, a few people get away with trading child porn so the rest of us can surf without big brother watching us. Think about it. At least Comcast doesn't roll like AT&T.
