Im not sure what the objective of that site is. Lighting an oline candle isnt going to stop child porn and the sick perverts the produce / purchase the thing. As long as govrments allow companies to host these websites they will never dissapear. I knew a guy who was in a child porn ring (only discovered this when he got busted a year after i left the area) and he got protection and a name change and moved cause he gave up a bunch of guys, presumably so he can continue to do what he has been doing for years. Its disgusting.

Have you been to the site? This is an online petition to put pressure on government, politicians, online companies, internet providers,payment organisations etc... so they act and try to do something about it. What a defeatist attitude , I thought it was an easy and simple way for people to add their voice to the 2 millions plus who have signed already.
Nothing will happen unless we all protest about it and make it financially impossible for those people to trade .
Is it really so much to ask?

You think lighting a candle will help ? Child porn is illegal, you shouldnt have to sign a petition to do it. Im not questioning the motive of the site, just asking if you think it will actually do anything? I dont think it will. If a child being abused isnt enough motivation for authorities, i dont know what can be.

You won't know if you don't try... The site is trying to highlight the issue and raise it publicly.

an older guy that lives near my parents got arrested for kiddy porn and was given a 25 year sentence, which considering his age and health is basically a life sentence.

Mooseketeer....maybe you can post this on the Religion forum here. I know you'll get a lot of support and many of them are plugged into groups and churches where they can circulate this.

Light an online candle. Then sit down and actually write a paper and pen letter, make several copies and mail one each to each of your local and state government officials. Do you really want to see a change? Actually send this same letter to our government officials - President, Senators, Congressman, Supreme Court Judges, Representatives, etc. They believe paper in hand more than something they hear about being online. We vote some of these people into office - they work for us - they need to do abide by our wishes. Isn't your wish the same as mine? STOP ALL CHILD PORNOGRAPHY AND CHILD ABUSE NOW!!!!!
