    Porn? Why? Bad for computers?

    I am not a fan of porn, I am actually against it. Though I talked to my one friend and said his kid brother ruined the computer becuase he would go to porn sites, my question is why does porn ruin computers? Like what is the problem with computers and porn? Why does porn ruin a computer...I am just wondering. I never would have thought porn could ruin a computer. I am not a prev, or a sicko, I just dont understand why.

    I guess a lot of porn is pretty big and could fill up the hard drive hence slowing the computer down?

    Or perhaps he's reffering to all the popups on porn sites clogging up his history ;]

    I'd make an "adult comment"....but this is considered a family forum PM me if you'd like to hear it

    But, maybe he should try clearing out his history/cache, and then get some software to keep his kid brother away from the porn?

    Not trying to take this off-topic, but is there a script that automatically adds the website to the homepage with no knowing of the user?

    Why does porn ruin a computer?
    Porn is destructive (morally and even programatically). It can bring spam, it can install its own program (like the above post), and you know it ... it's baaaad! (Some people might disagree).

    I know someone that had to re-install his OS (windows) because he accidentally hit 'ok' or something, and this site is downloading files that stays in the computer everytime he opened up his browser.

    In short, porn wants to get to you one way or another. And it's all about money. Just like drugs! That's why it tries its hardest to 'stay' in your computer, eventhough you don't want it. It doesn't care if it ruins your settings.

    yes there is...i saw it on like wizzysearch.com. Pain in the butt, if someone would put that on their site I'd stay away from their site forever...thats bs they have to do that to get people to come back.

    Thats a registry enrty ... It loads a temp file that then changes the registry to update the home page .. pretty easy to kill .
    Formating is a little drastic.

    The only time i wont fix this is if the customer has kiddie pron. I tell them to see their dealer for that. ( I'm biased I guess, but kiddie porn is sick... I figure maybe if their neighbors know they go to sites like that, they mite stop)
    [url]I got nothing/url]

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    Personally I don't have a problem with it. (unless its hardcore stuff like S&M)

    Some of the seedier sites resort to poor practices like making you unwittingly download dialers and other scripts.

    I started a porn site and was making decent money before I was 18.

    So I suppose if illegally looking at it is bad, illegaly selling it is worse

    It's sites are filled with scumware that just hi-jacks many things on your computer for example:

    - Browsers
    - Start Pages
    - Favourites
    - Popups

    Anything that would make the site money.

    If porn sites were designed the same way other business sites were, there wouldn't be so many people against it, (except kidporn and animalporn and such). It's the anoying popups, spywares and such that is the problem. It's as if they don't think they'll get any money unless they trick their viewers. If you go to the store and pick up a copy of playboy, you don't get a lot of strange phonecalls trying to sell you other magazines and such.

    Someone needs to be devil's advocate.

    Porn is good.

    Internet took up thanks to porn. We would have no tv, pcs, movies, video ... without porn.

    Porn helps and pushes technology forward. Security, streaming media ... all thanks to porn.

    e.g. People do not upgrade their browser so they can view your site, they upgrade so their favorite porn site can display properly.

    If you are making any money from Intenet and you are moral person, you should give you thanks to porn before any meal.

    I should finish this by posting a link and saying something like: If you feel a need to give something back to Porn, click here and sign up for free porn pics in your email.... But that would get me banned.

    I guess it depends on how you go on about your business in that field.
