OSNews, Generic OSes ...and we're back. Like so many other sites on the web, OSNews joined the worldwide protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, which threaten to end free speech, economic innovation, privacy, and the free exchange of information on the web. I don't wish to waste too many words on our participation, so consider this item as a sort of comment lightening rod to make sure that when the next story is posted, we can focus fully on its topic. Update: DC seems to be getting the message the internet sent today.

RE[3]: Porn

Member since:

You seem to be suggesting something about the Pope? ;) (well, he did have few awkward moments in the past, also as a Cardinal / lack of interventions...)

BTW, my time was 90s and much different (mostly "just" the place ...a short hop across the Baltic; and already more into "tradition" & empty appearances of morality)

But, curious thing: I know quite well few people decade+ younger, young women among them - according to which, the incidence of sexual molestation in schools (groping, etc.) decreased dramatically in comparison to what I remember from the 90s - when, coincidentally, access to porn was much scarcer, hmm... (who knows how related / to bad we'll probably never get a conclusive research about the "harm" (or not) of pornography - right now it seems it's about 50/50, some research suggests one way, some another - too loaded topic)

...well, and there seems to be also more voluntary activities now / the youth isn't repressed nearly like we were a short decade+ earlier (must be more healthy, too)
