oftotc, investigating the perpetrators, documenting their financial and social networks and reporting them to authorities has always been an important part of this investigation. Mobilizing social networking of our membership to report CP and child exploitation on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram has also been major for us because it often takes many voices to force hosts to take down these creeps.

Examples in the past 24 hours include:

No doubt, and keep up the good work. I think that:

Break any link that leads to CP by adding spaces into the url so that users must copy and paste it into their browser a gateway. One could disguise a content distribution network under the guise of "protecting the children", which should be a familiar tactic to anyone studying these topics. Be skeptical of anyone encouraging you to search for data that will expose you and your systems to CP regardless of their publicly stated goals.

People who think this is ok, also be aware that you are enabling the abusers and potentially gestating the next perpetrator. Be careful what you ask for.

EDIT: Added a forgotten "to". It bugged me ;-)

You do realize that those offering this material on the internet do not want us infiltrating their sites, reporting them to law enforcement and web hosts. They most certainly aren't going to post here leading us to themselves.
