Today's also the day that the guys responsible for prosecuting child pornography offenders stated that they lack the resources and would only prosecute the highest priority cases - leaving around 50,000 alleged offenders uncharged.

So that's up to 50,000 people that allegedly have images of actual child sex that wont be charged, and one person with cartoons that's been found guilty.

Fucked up situation indeed. Interesting that it's his second conviction for breaching child pornography laws without ever being found in possession of child pornography. And people wonder why I refuse to browse porn sites these days..

I live in the UK and I think Chris Grayling is an utter twat. I hope he loses his seat in the election, and that causes a terminal depression.

He deserves it.

There are already laws against harassment, against threatening rape or murder, against pretty much anything he wants to try and cover with further legislation. So fuck him, I reserve the right to offend him and if I see him in the street then he'll find out that I don't just do that online.

No, it was stupid.

If the material shouldn't be available, then remove it.
If it should be available, allow it to be found.

Right now Google are in a no-win situation and the rest of us have artificial barriers in the way of what should be pretty simplistic research.

Sorry, you're bitching at someone for providing jobs without belittling those that do the jobs?
You're also assuming that the in house staff aren't the same race as their employers.
You also appear to be assuming that this is in the us or possibly south Africa.

In my country domestic staff are traditionally white Anglo Saxon. Indeed, mine all are, except my Friday chef; I think he had a Pakistani heritage.

In India the domestic staff are Indian, etc.

So please, do try not to jump to conclusions, you're just not very good at it.

The number of guns used in those rapes and murders dropped once it was guaranteed that the ay law-abiding victim would be unarmed, but there have been a lot more murders, a lot more rapes, and a lot more violent crime overall.

Since none of the victims would have been carrying a gun prior to the ban either, your interpretation of events is spurious and bullshit.

You've also glibly disregarded the changes in rate and nature of rape crime reporting - by rate mean the percentage of incidents that get reported.

So sorry if your abuse of statistics shows you to be a bigoted twat with an agenda but that's what happened.

From one of the reviews:

One final comment. He uses a series of 'steel collars' in his design. I presume that's a British term. If you look up 'steel collars' on Google you get a bunch of bondage sites. Instead look up 'shaft collars.'

So to avoid finding bondage sites I should search for "shaft collars"? Feels counterintuitive to me. But I'm british. .

Just recognize that you are wearing a piece of functional jewelry rather than making a practical choice.

I like the convenience of "time on wrist" - it's definitely functional jewellery but when it's not practical to wear an expensive delicate watch I put on a far cheaper one instead; it's a practical choice.
