There's a reason why you've been getting those 'RapeMaster' spam ads although we're not sure why, but alot of weird stuff is popping up in spam. I could live without ads for 'farmer girl on cow' sites.

To heck with thinking this out, it's obviously a massive conspiracy involving the Government, Government Ops, Ariel Sharon, the CIA, the Queen of England, Mothers who post bikini pics for pedophiles, Wired.com, Capitol Hill Blue and other forms of media to discredit the Internet while using the Internet to do it.

Anyways, what sorts of weird 'GovOps' spam are you getting in your mailboxes?

From the first link: Subject lines include ..."Raping furry naked barnyard friends."


This just made me giggle helplessly...sounds more like a cross between an X-rated video and a read-aloud storybook a la "Pat the Bunny".

I don't know about the Queen of England's conspiracy involvement , but I do know that, for example, the US CIA has admitted to 1) drug trafficking, 2) large scale media manipulation, 3) mind control studies programs, and a whole slew of other similar creepy shit. The US Pentagon has admitted that, in FY 2001, it has no audit trail for 1 Trillion (that's US 1 trillion, as in 1,000 billion) dollars of it's budget. Furthermore, it's well documented that the US gov. snatched hundreds of Nazi scientists (and also SS intelligence officers) - some of whom, as in the case of Claus Barbie, were atrocious war criminals - to work secretly for the US. Not that the USSR was any better in this regard -- probably worse. But two wrongs don't make a right. Conspiracies are quite real and conform quite closely to the imperatives of money and power. Go read some Hobbes, Machiavelli, and Edward Bernays.

Although many recipients are disgusted by the imagery, experts are worried that these niche porn sites could lower the inhibitions of sexual deviants and provoke them to act out their fantasies in real life.

Uh... that's a bit of causation I hadn't heard confirmed before. I'd love to see Dr. Cooper's research on this.. surely a psychologist wouldn't make such a statement based on anecdotal reports from his own patients. But there he is, buying his patient's explanations of "I never would have done this otherwise! The internet made me do it! Its entrapment!", guess he needs to sell books.

Still, I'm all for banning spam, lets just not set crackpot precedents in the process.

I suppose this was inevitable, really. It's nothing more than the market crowding up and people trying to find whatever niches there are remaining.

The funny thing is, though, that implies that most spam porn guys have a line that even they won't usually cross. :)

i'm sorry but i don't find this funny in any way.

someone very close to me was raped using some type of drug ( the rapist has diplomatic immunity). since then her inbox, and the inbox of her 13 yo daughter is full of this sort of spam.

have a guess at how disturbing they find these emails.

I think some of our Canadian readers would beg to differ on this point. BC is British Columbia.

I'm sure the Canadian authorities would happily co-operate with the American authorities to get rid of this crap. Actually, I think I've heard quite a few news items about our two countries working collaboratively to shut down child pornography rings.

Yes, and CA is Canada.

Actually, it has been shown that by pairing two different types of sensory information (visual, olfactory, tactile, auditory) simultaneously (ie, "Paired Stimuli") you can develop a similar response to both stimuli. It's known as Classical Conditioning. Pavlov's dog is the example most commonly referred to. There was an experiment (I could not find a link on Google, unfortunately)where they showed men photos of attractive, naked women paired with photos of women's shoes. Eventually, the men became aroused by the photos of the shoes alone.

Conceivably, if someone were to repeatedly view pictures of young girls dressed and posed in a "sexy" manner more commonly associated with adult women (skimpy clothes, make-up, provocative poses), in combination with explicit pictures of adult women and/or in combination with sexually explicit text that normalizes adult/child sexual interaction they could, over time, develop a sexual attraction to young girls.

In short:
young girls + sexually provocative dress and body language traditionally associated with adult women + other forms of sexually explicit visual stimuli + repeated exposure (might) = learned sexual response to young girls.

Googling the postal code given for the address renders a bunch of "mailing addresses" for various companies (http://www.google.com/search?q=v9l+6s9). All the ones on Waters Road seem to map to the same place according to Yahoo! maps.

There are no cities in Delaware called Qwildon.

Zip codes in Delaware do not start with the number 4 (they all start with 1).

46431 seems to be a non-existant Zip code. It should be somewhere in Northwestern Indiana.

The 208 area code listed in the phone number is an Idaho area code. The 379 exchange looks like an eFax pool of numbers. It's probably officially a Boise fax machine exchange.

Everything in the above whois information can be taken for granted to be fake.
