  • “Police will be patrolling the Internet? They'll need to get the nation's top men on it— Readyman, Chillycheez, SatanicMechanic, and maybe even BeeBop77.”

  • “It's about time. As a market researcher, I'm sick of perverts in chatrooms propositioning me whenever I pretend to be an 11-year-old girl.”

  • “This is great news. I find child pornography sickening, but I am aroused by images of Belgians being led away in handcuffs.”

  • “An international anti-child-porn force would dramatically increase the possibilty of authorities rappelling in through skylights, which is good.”

  • “Shouldn't we be fighting terrorism, and not doing anything about anything else?”

  • “That's going to be yet another weird government office to accidently wander into.”
