    HOT TIP: I don't care whether you care or not.

    If you don't care, then why do you read the posts and respond to them?

    Why not let 'the market' handle food safety, vehicle safety, building codes???? You argue from a flawed premise- that if left alone 'the invisible hand' will guide and manage sound business practices.

    The porn industry was simply trying what mainstream media is doing- establishing a 'voluntary' system to block government regulation. Mainstream media uses a voluntary rating system to avoid the FCC establishing one- the porn industry attempted one for disease prevention.

    There is a difference between a woman making pies for friends, family and a woman who goes into the pie business. Society, long before abstract unsubstantiated ivory tower political paper exercises such as liberatianism, has held amateur vs professional to differing standards.

    Countries that have used a certification system for prostitution, such as Germany, with a remarkable degree of success.

    It is one thing for you to poison your family by improper food handling, a whole 'nother ball of wax for The Colonel to do it...

    Isn't that considerably less common though?

    And when she kicks your back door in to steal from you? You need to get over the "Pretty Woman" idea of what and who most prostitutes are.

    Great, so what is the difference to the end result if you get sick from your friend the farmer that gives you some food and the grocery store that sold you some food? Would you agree that there is no difference to speak of?
