Oh is reddit still around? People use that thing? :)

I thought they're mods were busted for some child-pron stuff or something...

They might not really be the best place to be promoting... I don't see this as a Larry Flynt moment - Flynt was also disgusting, but his models were knowing and paid adults. And his scandal was actually over posting political rants not in agreement with the regime in power at the time. In both of those regards, he was actually a champion of free speech.

Reddit is just backing 'peeping toms' that photograph unknowing children and young women... and claiming legality. They're just victimizing innocent people.

I'd suggest finding a new horse to ride. There are other places that are frontiers of online media and communication that have more tact in knowing which first amendment battles to fight.

Pussycat, none of that is very accurate. In the future, please don't make such serious allegations without heavy sourcing -- especially when they include the words "or something".

You're aware President Obama participated in a Reddit thread, right?
