What’s the Deal?
The Department of Justice is proposing regulations to implement a federal law designed to combat child pornography, known as Section 2257. The law was first enacted in 1998 and was amended in 2006 and significantly expanded to include regulation of the Internet.
While many of the regulations pertain to companies that produce adult entertainment magazines and videos (and are extremely burdensome), they would also affect anyone who uses an adult social-networking site. Here’s how:
- The regulations would require the people running a site to get and maintain personal information from every user (that means you) who posts a “sexually explicit” photo, including your photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or military ID).
- The regulations would allow the Attorney General to conduct warrantless searches at will on the sites’ records, including your personal information.
- There are few safeguards over what the FBI can do with the information it obtains.
- If a site operator fails to comply with the regulations, he or she would face a prison sentence of up to 5 years.
- For more detailed information on Sec. 2257, go to http://www.thetaskforce.org
Obviously, none of this has anything to do with child pornography. Instead, it is a blatant attempt to end the ability of consenting adults to use adult social-networking sites to meet other people for sex. Obviously, if these regulations go into effect, they will kill this industry.

NGLTF is reporting that the department of justice is not stopping at tricking gay cruisers in bathrooms for the "safety of children." Now they want to be able to get all o the personal information and search anyone who is a member of an "adult social networking site." That means you manhunt.net users. It seems like ever since sodomy was legalized the government will stop at nothing to prevent us from getting off.
