I just found , in one of my facebook groups, a pic of a baby, maybe a year old or so, a baby, blindfolded and duct taped to a wall, put up for the group's amusement. Comments vary from citing child abuse to being highly amused. I thought it was absolutely disgusting. Facebook goes too far with their content a lot of the time, it seems anything goes. I was horrified at the picture and will be reporting it. Disgraceful.

It is disgusting. If that is a real baby, SOMEONE should be going to jail.

That's the problem with the internet. The controls are very lax, but I have seen that they are improving. The more of us who report such activity the better it will become. It's like the spam filters on e-mails - the more you classify as junk the more there is that gets dealt with.

Hey welcome back Ken!
Yes that's right, no control at all really. What amazed me were the amount of people who had commented thinking that the picture was funny. There were over 1000. How sad.

You're just jealous coz Ken is back :)

Yeah, kazzzz, if I were you I would report it to whatever law enforcement investigates these things. They can trace via IP #s...

It could be a stupid PhotoShop gag, but it's still not cool.

I did report it Cori and got some crap automated response saying a moderator would look at it. I checked the site again this evening and it's still there with heaps more posts saying how funny it is.

The internet has fostered a mentality, particularly amongst younger users, that viewing such material is OK.
