    Should internet porn be made illegal and the proposed xxx domain scrapped?

    I am disgusted by the continual harassment this industry gives, it merely encourages the world wide spamming of decent sites everywhere and causes you unwanted expense in buying additional software in order to attempt to censor it out yourself.

    The internet is supposed to be a place of peace. Porn this, and porn that merely makes the air stink. Although it may not be wrong to think erotically, the internet is a collective consciousness, and so we must all respect what collective consiousness would be in any other communal situation.

    Who agrees?

    not me
    although I don't watch it, but the government has no right to determine what we watch.(its in the constitution)

    Me, either.

    And if they're talking about a dot xxx domain,

    THAT's how anyone who doesn't want to be exposed to it can get away from it.

    (Also, if you set your e-mail controls as though you were under 18, that should stop a lot of the unsolicited junk.)

    If we want to have free speech,

    and we DO (!)

    then everyone gets to say whatever dumbass thing they want to,

    and to hold whatever retard opinion they decide upon.

    My main beef is the getting away from it part, 'cuz it DOES seem to take an act of Congress to stop these folks.

    With it segregated, avoidance should be a cinch ~

    just don't go there. ;)

    While I'm not a fan of the spamming and such, I'm against more government interference.

    Would be easy to filter the .xxx domains for those that don't want to see it. Seems like a great idea. Be careful censoring your rights, no telling what they will want to control next.

    You got issues if you think the Internet is place of peace. Stop visiting those sites that has porn. Grow up dude. First try to correct your own mistakes

    Who the hell said that the internet should be a place of peace?

    Peace if great, but no growth comes from peace.

    Internet porn is not the reason why the internet is not a place of peace. Porn is among the least of the problems on the internet. People watch it and masturbate, and during that process, it is highly unlikely that a hate motivated activity is exercised by said people themselves since they are masturbating to porn at the time.

    What I believe the internet should be is a place for neutrality and freedom, but without activities based on hate, and/or malicious intent. This is ideal, just as the notion that the internet should be a place of peace is ideal, and that's fine in my opinion. It is not a bad thing to have idealistic ideas, for it is such ideas that make us want to be better versions of ourselves. But porn is not all that threatening compared to an average YouTube comment poster who might regularly leave all kinds of hateful comments and engage in all kinds of useless arguments.

    For that matter, HF as an online community isn't even particularly peaceful half the time, lol.

    I am not interested in any government censorship but Internet porn is certainly not harmless. It’s not just a guy whacking off to it. There’s an ugly industry that produced it and it’s the same industry that sexually exploits children

    You're absolutely right, except you seem to have missed where I said "without hate and/or malicious intent" to describe an ideal scenario. We've all establish the problems that happen in the porn industry as precisely, well, problems. That's exactly why a lot of adult models are speaking out these days, and what can be described as "ethical porn" is becoming much more popular. Shady parts exist in any, and every industry.

    I caught that I just wanted to explicitly call it out for people reading the thread. I think it’s been glossed over.

    Definitely there are shady parts of every industry. Our idiot president has 17 accusers, one of whom was 13. But of course they’re not all equal. An industry that sexually exploits kids for profit can’t be counted on to hold up any ideal standards

    In a free society people have the right. You do not have the right to not be bothered. If you do not seek out porn it's difficult for your computer to pick up any virus from it. In other words if you are not jerking off no danger to you. And I have found a virus in the top google result searching mainstream topics.

    The idea of person making one of those is to put it where people look. Porn is something most people view so it's put there but it can be anywhere.

    There was a time when I was would be like, hell no! FREEDOM!

    And while I would never support the government coming in and taking people's porn from them, I do--for the first time in my life--have a problem with it. Porn is a fantasy and people are misinterpreting it as reality.

    Don't believe me? Check out the Love & Sex forums.

    If men can't see it for what it is then I have no real feeling for them, nor will I feel sorry for them either.

    I enjoy watching solo female porn and I like learning new things from cam girls etc. It's all about the education. Totally!

    But these dudes with their fantasies lol.
