Mod of Reddit’s Jailbait subreddit shocked – shocked! – that dozens of commenters there were begging for nude pics of a 14-year-old

Ugh. It’s the Jailbait subreddit again. If you’ve been following any of the discussions that have recently been swirling around Reddit’s popular subreddit dedicated to the posting of technically-not-child-porn pics of underage girls, you probably ran across the standard Jailbait apologia: The pics there aren’t nude pics, and besides, most of them were originally posted on the internet by the girls themselves. So it’s all good clean fun, I guess.

It’s going to be a little bit harder for the Jailbaiters to use this bullshit argument in the future. A day or so ago, you see, a Jailbaiter calling himself TheContortionist posted a pic of his (alleged) 14-year-old ex-girlfriend’s ass in a thong. Naturally, the regulars demanded more. The OP noted that the only other pics he had of her were nudes.

So literally dozens of the regulars – I counted around 70 in all — begged him to PM the nudes to them.  And … apparently he did send some of them the pics, at least according to a r/jailbait moderator with the charming handle I_RAPE_PEOPLE.

I can only hope that some of the requesters were FBI agents.

Here’s a screenshot of the whole disgusting thread (SFW; in an earlier NSFW screenshot posted to Reddit virtually all of the comments you see downvoted here still had net upvotes).

TheContortionist’s post (and the Jailbaiters’ reaction to it) was first brought to the attention of non-pedo Redditors by Me_bender in ShitRedditSays, then brought to the attention of the rest of Reddit by SRS regular HPLovecraft.

Naturally, this being Reddit, the r/jailbait apologists are still insisting that, hey, even though something like 70 people in r/jailbait publicly requested PMs of child porn, this sort of thing is officially frowned upon by the subreddit’s mods, so, you know, not to worry. As CapNRoddy put it:

The existence of r/jailbait does not mean nudes of children. Those are against the rules. Those posters broke the rules.

And then of course there were various iterations of this non-argument, set forth here by im_only_a_dolphin:

You know what I do about /r/jailbait?

I don’t visit it. Bam. Problem solved.

If by “solved” you mean “ignored, because I don’t give a shit about crimes that harm people other than me,” then I guess, yeah, that is “problem solved.”

I’ve been taking these quotes from the sometimes surreal discussion of the issue on the WTF subreddit. That discussion also produced this rather surreal exchange with I_RAPE_PEOPLE, the r/jailbait moderator I mentioned earlier:

 

Meanwhile, in another discussion of the topic elsewhere on Reddit, voidsong managed to get more than a dozen net upvotes for a comment that attempted to place the blame for the pics in r/jailbait on “daddy’s little angels slutting themselves up and taking pictures in the mirror” (and, of course, their parents).

I can only hope that the authorities are investigating these creeps, and that the Reddit admins are cooperating fully with them.

you do realize that this is the internet and there is really nothing that is too offensive, to controversial, too taboo,too tasteless, or even too illegal

Hahaha! You played the ridiculous “this is the internet” canard, and pretend that illegal activity becomes innocuous. Guess what, Monsieur sans Cerveau, disseminating child pornography is illegal. As usual, you’ve displayed your quality in this thread — the very lowest.

I get the impression that some people really do believe that the internet is somehow totally separate from the rest of society, and thus nothing done here is legally actionable. I wonder how much it would freak them out to realize how many government agencies in countries all over the world have cybercrimes departments.
