The extreme porn bill has passed and it's really got your collective goat. And all your pictures of your collective goat, soon enough. They'll definitely be illegal. The problem still comes down to ambiguity in the definition of 'extreme porn', and you lot were not happy:

I still don't know whether that extreme lesbian site at www.theregister.co.uk is going to be legal or not.

I don't remember consenting to [Gordon's] dominance over me - does that make a picture of him obscene?

This new law is a badly thought out piece of vote-grabbing legislation hanging on the coat tails of one family's tragic loss. It's unlikely to save a single life, but has the potential to create thousands upon thousands of new criminals and cost millions in enforcement.

As the (proud?) possessor of a mint copy of Madonna's masturpiece, it gladdens my heart to read that it's both illegal and worth a bit.

So how are we the 'Public' meant to check if an image is legal?

Do we take it down the local nick and get arrested if it isn't legal.

This is a stupid law, I think we should all take piles of magazines down to the local police station and go over every image with them so we will know if the images are legal.
