    most of the things quoted in this thread, and many of the other insane things she has said over the last 2 years.

    I know of no way to "protect women and children from pornography" without making it unavailable for public consumption. The only way to ensure that children will not be exposed to pornography is to get it completely off the internet. That calls for massive censorship that is both unconstitutional and immoral.

    Seriously folks, read the document, and especially read the footnote to the point this is referring to. it does not call for a ban of porn, nor for further regulations in it's consumption. It is talking about, as the footnote makes clear, kiddy porn, and protecting children from that. It's footnote 17 if any one wants to look.

    I have read footnote 17. It makes special mention of specific things, like child pornography. This is an expansion of the main point, rather than a narrowing of it. The phrase "all forms of pornography", in the main body, seems pretty clear. And I'm aware that they have since commented, and said that they do not call for a ban on all pornography. However, it is clear to me that the authors of this pledge did have massive censorship in mind when they wrote it. The fact that they were willing to reverse this stance, publicly, in the face of controversy, does not suggest to me that their position that censorship is okay as long is it fits their morals, has changed.

    If it is clear to you when you read what's not there, Pachendale, then debate becomes very difficult. The rest of us are stuck with understanding what is actually there.
