I have had this too, your looking at porn then you get sucked into a kind of labyrinth of the stuff then suddenly your looking at something and it looks well shady you click off but your ip address could still be traced. I think that the police are interested in people who are repeat offenders and have child porn saved to their HD etc.

I know a woman who once reported a guy she lived with (flatmate) when she found child porn on his computer and the police told her they had been aware of him for sometime.

Nothing will happen. It's usually the people that put it up and that have hard printed copies that get done. And plus a lot of people go onto child porn by accident, all these porn sites are dodgy. Try to stay away from that stuff, it's worse than heroin IMO.

And when you hear about *****s who get done for it they usually have thousands of pictures. That said, you can report it to certain internet authorities

I wouldn't worry unless you get your laptop checked over any time soon, and even then they normally know who is an offender and who isn't.

You'd only get into trouble if you have lots and lots of child pornography saved onto your computer and you'd actually deliberately typed it in etc to look it up.

It's easy to stumble across horrid sites by accident. Just try and stay away from all those sites altogether

I doubt the authorities will track people who spent a few seconds on an CP site once.

They'll realise little accidents can happen.

If you were looking at it for prolonged regular periods they'd investigate.

You'll be fine.

I can't beleive they actually say no porn.. like what kind of male uni student doesn't watch porn.

Sow hat people are saying is it's okay to have a little bit of...child porn?
What :lolwut: ?

Is it just me who would email the police with how they got to the site and that it popping up was involuntary, but something needs to be done about it?

This is the most ridiculously idealistic thing I've read on this site.

No, can't you read? People are saying it's ok that he was accidentally on it for 2 seconds.

Police can find websites like that with ease, if normal people can by accident. They are often hosted in other countries. It is if people are repeatedly accessing things like that and have downloaded/saved images like that, that they are put on a watch list or arrested.

Yeah I wouldn't worry about it. The darker areas of the internet can be kind of dangerous, you get accidentally linked to all sorts of stuff - pop-ups, viruses, weird blank websites, horrific scarring images, it's a real mess, very easy to accidentally get linked to something that seems dodgy. Guess it's the online equivalent of going to a brothel and catching lots of nasty STDs. I imagine this sort of thing happens all the time accidentally. Unless you have hundreds of images on your hard-drive, it's nothing to worry about.

As for the uni, it's not like they have the time to look through everyone's browsing history. If they see a massive spike in data usage because you've been downloading films non-stop then they might chase you up on it, but they're not going to notice anything.

I think realistically there won't be a great proportion of the males in relationships who do actually refrain from watching porn solely out of respect for their partner. Especially if the couple are at different universities, or if the girl doesn't have a problem with them doing it.
Respect for their partner? Explain how it shows disrespect? You can't expect your partner to be up for intercourse at your every whim, that would be mistreating her. And so using porn is justified. And it's not disrespectful, because the women in it choose to be in it of their own free will.

I didn't say everyone with a partner, but I didn't use porn much at all anyway, when I got a partner, I didn't use it for ages, and barely ever use it at all.
