I don't remember the name or web address, thank god, but there was this one forum used for posting tips and stories on how to best infect others with HIV. It was mostly posted on by men with HIV who fantasized about infecting others, especially without their consent, many even talking about their own children. Sometimes ads were posted by non HIV+ people looking to become HIV+.

It made me sick and I spend as much if not more time on 4chan than I do here. (Just not /b/. No one intelligent goes to /b/.)

You didn't know that?

One of the best things Bill O'Reilly ever did was get their website booted overseas. It shut down for a while, but apparently Germany has no problem with pedophilia. You can't mention the 30's or half of the 40's without breaking a law. If a game has a paper cut in it, they'll ban it. Child rape? Yeah thats ok.

Though not necessarily forums, comments on Digg. Seriously, some of those people are just fucked up. I remember 3 years ago how much better it was.

Well the Feds busted them a few times. I want to say hackers have been fucking with them on and off for quite a while now as well, but I couldn't say for sure.

O'Reilly made it his crusade for a few years there to get these guys known and shut them down. To be honest he did a pretty good job with it, they're basically hiding overseas as an organization. Its one of the good things the guy did in his life. They were getting hammered before that, but he brought the attention of millions of people on them that didn't know they existed and got them riled up.

Oh... and you gotta love Wikipedia sometimes.

Opponents also argue that pre-pubescent children in particular are not capable of giving consent and that the power imbalance between adults and children makes any sexual relationship exploitative.[citation needed].

No. Citation is NOT fucking needed.

Soccer "Won't somebody please think of the children?!" mom
At least two people who didn't read the article before posting

I don't tend to visit forums apart from a select few so it's rare for me to come across anything as crazy as mentioned previously. However, the Dennis Dyack / Too Human Review / NeoGAF challenge mentioned on 1UP Yours drew me over to check out that forum for the first time. After reading some of the absolute garbage posted there I was left scratching my head as to why NeoGAF gets so much respect. Maybe I just hit it up on a bad day.
