Andrew Cuomo needs to create the appearance of a problem...

Speaking of disturbing jobs ...

New York state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo planned to use MediaDefender to collect child-porn evidence on P2P networks -- which is a rather questionable decision given that MediaDefender:

1. Has a history of interfering and disrupting online activity, including people and content that is completely legal and cleared to share

2. Is paid by the porn industry to plant fake files on P2P networks that, when viewed, drive the viewer to the porn-operators site

3. Lacks sufficient intrusion protection (they suffered a huge break in about a year ago)

4. Was preparing an entrapment website (MiVii).

Yeah, Andy's a good cop.

Agreed. Cuomo's a fool and MediaDefender a disgrace.

When discussing the "war" waged by Opportunist NYAG Cuomo, let's be more specific when tossing around the general term "porn." We're talking about purveyors of child pornography here. Adult porn is still legal and is protected by the 1st Amendment.

Agreed. I don't think there's an advertising budget within any child pornography industry, but thanks for clarifying that just in case someone wasn't sure.

My complaint about MediaDefender and the (adult) porn industry is that they inject fake files and search results into the P2P networks to lure users to their sites -- users, who are not necessarily adults. Giving ones porn ad for "fetishsite.com" the same title as the search terms someone just used, such as "building implosions", is probably not speech protected by the first amendment.

That may be so, but I've noticed that you have a nasty little habit of speaking in glittering generalities no matter what your opinion is on this site for any given topic. Someone corrected you so don't get your panties in a wad over it.

Since my "panties" aren't "in a wad" about anything, I think you have misinterpreted something. SilverSurfer has not said anything that I disagree with.

For example?

People correct me every day, and I have invited and embraced that and I thank them for it.

In this case, I don't see any glaring corrections. In fact, SilverSurfer took what may be seen as a generality of porn and clarified that it was distinct from child porn. I'm perfectly okay with that, since I meant that from the beginning.

Welcome to our violent agreement.
