Dear the Orange County Register:

It’s fine that you report on arrests for child pornography ( Brea Man, 55, Indicted On Child Pornography Charges ) and I understand that you’re going to give some details of the case.

But was it really necessary to include the domain of the website at which the arrestee and the witness met? It seems… counterproductive somehow.

  3. SIlverdaddies.com is like the combined alt.com and match.com of the gay senior world. Don’t ask me how I know this. At any rate, it’s not really all that any more nefarious or underground than myspace.

    1. Wow, so it’s a double whammy. The site gets slimed as a pedophile haven, and then every pedophile who reads the story heads there to make things worse!
