I applaud the focus anonymous has directed towards stifling child porn content on the web, but this feels a little like taking out a less capable foe after getting gutted by a greater one.

Nice to see them do something like this.

Also paedophile. Afaik Paedo is something like child (can't remember the language. Like Paediatrician). Ped is something like soil iirc.

I honestly don't know what to think. Here're some points to think about:

1) CP is bad (m'kay?) No, I'm serious this time. It's good to see Anonymous is going after that.

2) From the other side, it seems like a cheap publicity stunt from their side to gain popularity.

3) Also, I can't help but notice that, although despotism of a superior entity with right moral beliefs is the only efficient means of a just government, I cannot trust Anonymous' beliefs to be right.

4) Hell, I don't even see why should anyone agree to them doing it... CP is bad, but they're given way too much freedom to mess around on the net.

Both spellings are correct, Blubbey. Paedophile is the British spelling. Pedophile is the American and Canadian spelling.

And yes it might be a way to gain support. Well i surely will give them more support over this than a politician giving me more of the same crap from everyday, or the news showing how cruel the world is.

Grow up people, you want somthing good to happen? move your ass and start doing it.

Though when i read this news article on the BBC app, it also quoted "the authorities" (anti cyber crime ppl) saying that Anonymous may have screwed up ongoing investigations, traces and leads.
So while i agree it's good, there just maybe another side to the same coin (there always is lol).

Finally, hacking for good use!
This will be a lot more effective than only listening to boring politicians talking about fighting child pornography.
You have my support on this one.

About time they did something worthwhile. They've got my support.

Whilst they're at it, can they target our friends the Chinese spammers, too?

Yes but isn't pedophile pronounced differently? I don't recall anyone pronouncing encyclopedia different to encyclopaedia (i.e. the -pe is pronounced the same as -pae and not -ped) so this may be a unique example.

wrong colours? or was it "colors"
I went on a link claiming that there was an active Russian pedofile (note the spelling) site
and...YAAARRRGGHHH... no joke!Ï reported to the Police and used Shredded for the web cache
but I'm still afraid of Win7 restore system hiding some data somewhere
Never ever go after a rumour...it might be true and to an extend you don't want to see
Mostly girls of age 5-15, and at least one small boy
and that was the point I was waking from my ½coma
and I gave the link to the police and started the cleanup
I don't have any adult entertainment in my PC (or DVD's)
but I'm hard-boiled and I don't react easily
- yet still this happened ½year ago
and this is the first time I write about it publicly

Go Anonymous go!
Target the Russian websites also
anyone of you can find them by simple search - I guess
I found a direct link though - it was in a discussion
claiming that this is happening in Russia easily and publicly
I said (in my mind) bull...and I still am not fully recovered...
Please don't try to find out these pages
What if the police at that moment raids your PC?
How do you make judge to believe "I was just curious!"
Yack!

For some reason, I cannot amend my post (apologies for the second post). I was going to say that pedophile should be pronounced the same as paedophile, however it does seem to have two different pronunciations in the US. To me, it's peed- and not ped-.

So is Anonymous going after, themselves? I'm kinda lost here. I thought "/b/" was also Anonymous. Well, maybe it's another form of Anonymous, different group.
