Interview with a Net pedophile
Carnivore and Net censorship will save the children

Our Special Correspondent's dip into the net paedophile cess-pit certainly got Reg readers talking. Aaron Collins thought it was:

... excellent, it's about time someone looked into this subject with a sense of objectivity. It pisses me off that the internet, the single greatest source of information ever concieved, gets dragged through the dirt because of a very, very, VERY small minority of evil pedos.

I've been surfing for about 5 years now and have never come across bonafide child porn of any kind. I'm sure its out there for those sick enough to want it, but not in www sites, only in chat and newsgroups I suspect. For the average surfer it's nowhere to be seen. And thank God for that.

Agreed. Now an anonymous reader wants us to know that it's:

About time someone did some REAL investigating before writing an article. KUDOS to the unnamed person(s), and to the editor for keeping their names unknown from the mass of people that are unable to read responsibly. Keep up the good work!

From, An American that wishes his own country could write as well as yours!

Is our coverage really top investigative journalism? Not according to Marty Zaluski:

Surely, you'd give the investigative reporters from Watergate a run for their money, hehe.

You've GOT to have better things to do than solicit pedophiles on #IRC. Your rag is awesome, but this is article is CRAAAAAP!!!!

Catch up with the rest of the debate here.
