Yes, people should be careful with what they say and do, and not just online.
But how far is it reasonable to let authorities go under the guise of attempting to catch pedophiles, or terrorists, or whatever is the latest stereotype we should all hate?
anything in my mind that helps to catch at least some of these disgusting people
Do you REALLY not understand how something like this is dangerous for all of us or do you just hate pedophiles so much you would sacrifice, in your words, anything for just the possibility of catching one of these "disgusting" people?
I've said it a bunch of times before, the more influence government and authorities have over the Internet, the worse it is for humanity at large. The scary part is how many people seem happy to relinquish their human and civil rights just to feel a little safer, often from imagined threats.
