Yeah, well, you know the advantages of digital photography over film? :-)

This is just rediculous, I have dozens of photographs being naked when I was 5 or 6 years old. Those parents only wanted to photograph some funny bath moments and are now accused for kiddieporn, what a sad world it has become.

You may remember in 1996, Julia Somerville (a TV newsreader here in the UK) and her husband were arrested after Boots (a pharmacy that does film processing) called in the police because she had a film processed showing her 7yr old kid in the bath!

People have lost all common sense.

that's absolutely insane.

While its an interesting article, collecting various stories about self-appointed photolab moral police, I would prefer something a bit more factual. I remember another Salon.com Story about Republican dirty tricks during our last elections; trouble is, some of them just were not true. While I'm not Republican, I believe in factual reporting. Lumping together a bunch of stories doesn't always mean that everything is true. The basic problem is that many people all over the world haven't caught on to the fact yet that they weren't born fully clothed (Polyester for Baptists and Republicans, Cotton for Liberals). I think some other religions can't even risk thinking about birth.

That story is almost eight years old. I wonder if anything like that has happened recently.

I thought porn defines as sexual arousing images. Being naked just is not enough.
