    That articles has many interesting parts, for example:

    "AOL chief counsel John Ryan said the coalition was partly a response to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales' April speech identifying increases in child-porn cases and chiding the Internet industry for not doing more about them."

    No kidding. With DMOZ listing all the illegal sites, I think that critic was quite justified at least in regard to AOL.

    "AOL, for instance, plans to check e-mail attachments that are already being scanned for viruses. If child porn is detected, AOL would refer the case to the missing-children's center for further investigation, as service providers are required to do under federal law."

    How about they start scanning their own servers in DMOZ, for all of these kind of sites? :rolleyes:

    The cat is out of the bag guys, there is not much more we can do now that the mass media and the lawyers are in on the deal.

    Good work though, too bad they don't award money to those who did the early leg work, but the lawyers are all greedy pigs!

    Maybe we can start threads on legal firms now! :D

    PS: Gworld, the best way for AOL to deal with this is to sit down the administrators of DMOZ with AOL chief counsel John Ryan and simply tell them that they are all going to be fired if they don't shut down the entire adult section, we all know this is happening right now!

    The link to this article seems to have stopped working. Is there a link elsewhere?

    Is there a reason we're bumping a thread that's over a year old? Why not start a new one, this issue was resolved as far as I know. :confused:

    I was wondering the same thing. If the DMOZ listings have reappeared, it would make sense to start a new thread about that event. If not, what exactly IS being discussed here? :confused:
