So next time when you have a bazillion pop-ups on your screen, and one of them is linking to a dirty site, cops can come and knock down your door. It's in your cache and your cookies, so you can not prove that was a pop-up and not something you clicked on intentionally.
That should serve you right.
And I do not mean you, literally, but thousands of average PC users that do not know how to prevent or block such attacks.
Think about it... it could be one of your older relatives.

and yes im posting back to back just because of the spam... is it me or is the spamming getting worse??? why do I only see it so bad here? I havent really seen any other sights where i could click on every new article and find the same spam message within 5 to 10 min of the story being launched. Its just getting bad, and is really unexpected that the sight is having such a hard time compared to others 0.o

I remember when it was just one... or two spam hits. This story has 5 as of my posting and its still the same day where im at.

pleas at least police your new stories.

I agree with you, and I only hope they have implemented it already and this is just a facade to justify how they got the data, but they have pinpointed the criminals already and investigations are under way but not publicly shown. Just as the "every kid on the internet is a FBI agent in disguise" saying that goes with the internet rules.

from FBs point of view:

announce it & then people wont do it/pull pics etc. There will then be a lot less work for them to do as there will be fewer cases to deal with and less bad press at how much was being shared on their network.

I think this kind of thing is great when it is done with enough sense and disclosure to quell most of the privacy concerns. I feel like they are handling this well.

Just don't ever mix up the handling routines of the identified missing children with the one for the kiddie porn...now that would be a nightmare:

"Have you seen this naked child?"

Does anyone consider the ramifications of this? Besides this being a pathetic fishing expedition, they unwittingly admit it! Quote: "more than two billion digital pictures across both services, uncovering 1,000 matches on SkyDrive and 1,500 matches through Bing image indexing." Two billion searches without a warrant, yielding a pathetic 3500 offenders? My god, these people have to be so fucking stupid anyway, they are probably exposing themselves at playgrounds and would be quickly enough apprehended! Quit sacrificing your civil rights, privacy, and freedom for security sheeple!

So if my pictures are misidentified they will instantly be deleted...and i'll probably be getting a visit from the police.

Now i'm happy i left FB.
