"I have two kids under 9.

You are having a cry about MS or other organisations proactively searching for illegal and sickening content - to report to the authorities.

Cry me a river, princess."

Sure. One day you take your son camping. You wash your clothes and hang them up to dry. Your son tries to dry things faster by putting them on a stick and holding them over the fire. You think it's cute and take a picture. He's fully clothed, sitting in front of the fire innocently trying to help get clothes dry.

You save the pictures to your onedrive account.

Next thing you know, your kids are in state care and you and your wife are in seperate prisons awaiting trial on sex abuse and child pornography charges. You quickly learn the true nature of what people accused of such things experience in prison, made that much worse by your innocence.

All because MS trolled your account looking for pictures of sexual abuse, found what might be some, and called the authorities.

Since you're in prison charged with sexual offences against children, should I "cry you a river" then? After all, your case came about because they were "proactively searching for illegal and sickening content - to report to the authorities."

See http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/accused_of_child_pornography/ for where I got this from. I don't make any claims about the truthfulness or otherwise of the article.
