Moderator: Mod Squad

However vague Australia's laws on child pornography may be, this isn't an issue of them finding something on his hard-drive, this is an issue of him being accused of that kind of behavior by a child.
I only say this because not everyone seems to have read/understood what the link says, and it's important to keep this story straight.

The fact that we have icons who get charged with improper behavior towards children as moderators is kinda fucked up though.

HAHAHA. Try saying that to real victims of rape and pedophilia. Best case scenario you'll just get spit in your face.

I didn't think it was necessary/good to bring attention to this. Also I'm not one to gossip. I'm with Mir@k and Q.U. on this one; I'm a bit upset that Fummo did this. But I guess there's no sense in crying over spilled milk.
They don't know, they don't need to know and they don't have a right to know. Even the title of this thread is offensive. People claiming to be spreading the "truth" when it is obvious that all this person sought to do, having shown no interest in this forum in over a year, was to spread gossip and cause controversy. The fact is that no one knows all the details involved and there are extenuating circumstances all around. No one has the right to judge another person evil. The fact that this is even being discussed, what is likely the darkest point in another persons life, as though it were a reasonable topic of conversation, by those who did not truly know this person, is upsetting in and of itself.ULTRADJ wrote: I'm guessing with all the discussion going on people don't know exactly.
Q.U. wrote:I'm not going to lock this thread. However, I want to ask that you refrain from throwing around too much hearsay/speculation on Grids' personal case when the details are not available. From what I've read under that link the reports, as usual, limit themselves to using general "guilty words" to describe what the crime was, without explaining the specifics and details.
If this turns into a hate&bashing-fest, or wild speculation/conspiracy theories thread it will be locked.
