Quote# 101914

Should the number 1 be illegal? the number 1e10000? infinity? What about all the numbers in between? If you answered no, congratulations, you just agreed child porn should be legal. An image is nothing but a number, to make a set of images illegal is to make a number illegal.

{sigh} What about what the image snapshotted? I don't doubt you'd think a physical photograph could be viably deemed illegal. Does scanning it somehow put it into Impunity-ville? You didn't exactly change history by doing so.

...What?
I thought the pedos got kicked off reddit.

I...don't...what even...know...

WHAT? This is the worst reasoning I've ever seen.

Sure it is. And to make cocaine illegal is to make the color white illegal.

As if I didn't already have an entire internet's worth of evidence that reddit is just 4chan in a cheap rubber mask...

Time to take out the trash...

I hope he takes his computer to PC world to get fixed and says "don't look on the hard drive", like Mr Glitter did.

You must be new here.

EDIT: Oops. Got those backwards. Heh.

Send the party vans at his home!

The only guys to use this kind of argument for legalizing child porn are the pedos or deeply amoral persons, much like Tom Martin

Surely he means that child pornography produced by drawing (e.g. Sailor Moon hentai) cannot be outlawed under the first amendment.

This whole line of thinking is such a huge pile of dogshit.

If he meant hentai he'd have made the distinction between drawn/animated/sketched fantasies and child porn.

He said - and meant - actual child porn.

I even went and checked it at the source. He does mean child goddamned pornography. With living, breathing, crying, abused children. Makes all kinds of excuses about the distribution of child porn not being the same as the production and tries to convince people that 12 year olds post naked pictures of themselves online all the time and it would be infringing on their rights not to let them do it so it should totally be okay copy those pictures and spread them around as long as they aren't the ones physically abusing them. And a few people even agreed. Fucking Libertarians!

A whole lot of sick bastards out there need the formal introduction to Smacky.

Does the number 1 exploit children sexually?

Being a stupid pedophile is no way to go through life, shit stain.

You just argued that everything ever that can be expressed in binary is legal.

If that's the only way you can justify your despicable beliefs to yourself, maybe you should reexamine them. Please do.

7/6/2014 6:53:45 PM

michael3ov

So you think that if you digitize a poloroid you have somehow found a loophole, not only in the law but in ethics as well.

You truly need to be removed from society.

Wha.....? That has to be some of the stupidest logic I've ever heard from one of these shitbags, and there's a lot of stupid logic from that camp.

I believe that I speak for everyone here when I say that throwaway147923, and everyone who agrees with him, can all go fornicate themselves with an iron stick.

There's no way this guy can really be that dense. No way.

Way to sidestep the actual issue, throwaway147932. You're still wrong for even coming up with such a half-baked argument. I'm not even going to even try to argue because people like yourself won't listen. Also, to whoever gave you those upvotes to that post on Reddit, I hope the FBI is watching you too.

7/6/2014 9:17:24 PM

TimeToTurn

No, it makes the particular expression of that number in digital form illegal.

What a goddamned stupid argument. I can just imagine this moron giggling when he came up with it.

Please try it in court, though!

The Wikipedia article about illegal numbers lends this some sense.

Does the TV tropes page for FSTDT have an insane troll logic section? If so, this needs to go in there.
Also, computers do not work that way, you disgusting reprobate.
