Y'know, one day I hope...
... that it might be possible to read a story like this without the "Huh huh huh, it's porn" schoolboy nonsense.
Yes, some people like to watch adults engaged in consensual sexual activity. Others like to watch people engaged in sporting activity or romantic comedy activity or whatever. Big deal. A lot of them do it on their own, in private. Others do it with a partner.
The fact that this site, on its own, claims 60 million visitors *a day*, is trying to protect its customers from malware and is part of a larger organisation with many employees takes second place to the "smut, heh heh heh..." sniggering, written anonymously behind the moniker of "Team Register" (is that because nobody wanted to have fingers pointed at them?)
I could ask pathetic questions like: Did you all write it? Were you all clustered around one computer going "get a load of that" or perhaps you were all sitting in private cubicles, checking over your shoulder whilst doing "research"? but frankly I don't give a damn.
Come on, El Reg, if it was any other site (eg the BBC as has been mentioned by others) the story would have been written in a completely different way and under someone's own by-line, wouldn't it? So how about we treat the Adult Industry (which is what it is) in an adult manner and leave the gutter-press attitudes to the hypocritical tabloids?
