Mike South is still paying attention.
[This was originally posted to my old site but apparently the new owners didn’t want it so here it is.Â Â — One thing you can be sure of is that in porn…the truth HURTS]
OK first yes this is Mike South, I will be writing here on occasion when something interests me enough to comment on.Â I have been doing well and enjoying my retirement,Â with all that outta the way I got an email yesterday about how the FSC and ASACP are holding a “must attend”seminar on age verification.Â I had to laugh.
We all know the FSC and the long string of failures associated with them,Â Cutting Edge Testing…need I say more?Â There are at least two people working in porn as performers who are HIV positive….right now….because the FSC sticks to the idea that a 30 plus year old testing idea is best, it isn’t….but I digress.
The real funny part is ASACP for those not in the know this is one of Helmys (from XBiz) brainfarts,Â it stands for The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection,Â Â I loved this statement from the press release
“ASACP has worked to keep adult material away from minors for over two decades,â€ť said Tim Henning, Executive Director of the ASACP
Guess who one of the big sponsors is…MindGeek…aka…Manwin, reckon anyone has reported them for making porn easily available to children?Â I mean there is NO age verification of any kind on any of their sites…it’s spelled H y p o c r i s y
If you go to thier site you get to read “Why ASACP”Â here is why
Shutting down CE sites (and catching their operators) can only happen if suspected sites are reported and investigated. Government bodies around the world are inundated with reports and the resources to review them all simply do not exist.
ASACP offers a secure, anonymous reporting system for the general public to report questionable content who may feel uncomfortable contacting government agencies.
ASACP fosters communication and cooperation with the online adult industry. This means we have the outreach and access to involve adult sites and their customers in our fight.
ASACP has the knowledge and technical ability to review submitted reports and forward suspect sites to the authorities who consider our Red Flag Reports to be high priority.
OK lets have us a little come to Jesus meeting…..In the last 20 years the incidence of child pornography has reached epidemic proportions so in theory this is a good idea…porn people getting involved right….well the real idea here is to stuff cash into someones pockets.
How many people are in jail because of something that ASACP has done?Â EXACTLY ZERO.
How many people have stood trial because of something that ASACP did? EXACTLY ZERO.
How many people have been indicted by a grand jury because of something that ASACP did? EXACTLY ZERO.
How many people have ben investigated because of something that ASACP did? EXACTLY ZERO.
In TWENTY YEARS!Â Y’all think about that.
I rest my case.
