Satire can make you think

I certainly wasn't expecting The Friday Thing to provide me with something quite so epic to ponder of a morning. But here is a link to some mirrored essays by Pete Towshend about trying to prevent child porn online. Dating from mid-2002. Couldn't find the real articles on Pete's site.

It's long, but extremely thought-provoking, and a huge amount of effort to go to if it is just a front.

I think we'll all have a familiar shudder at the way he describes Images You Wish You Hadn't Seen. Some idiot running a rock fansite once thought a picture of a prolapsed rectum was funny. It's still with me today. Ugh.
