PORN WON’T FLY ON GNUTELLA
Seekers Of Child Pornography End Up Posted On "Wall Of Shame"
Search for child pornography on the Internet, and your IP address just might show up on the Zeropaid.com Wall of Shame courtesy of controversial music file-sharing program Gnutella.

Zeropaid.com is currently playing a trick on those who are looking for child pornography using the Gnutella file-sharing program. Download one of Zeropaid.com's temptingly named images, and the site logs your time of download, IP address and domain name—and then posts them on a Web site for the world to see.

The wall of shame went into operation April 27, in part as a reaction to an MSNBC report indicating file-sharing software Gnutella was being used to trade child pornography. The idea is to scare and embarrass would-be pedophiles into avoiding Gnutella, thus cleaning up the service.

"Most people are using Gnutella to download music. Very few people are using it for child porn, and I don't want them on it," said Jorge Gonzalez, founder of Zeropaid.com. He thinks the Wall of Shame might be enough of a deterrent to scare pedophiles into heading elsewhere.

While all involved are being commended for taking action, one Gnutella user pointed out that "child porn and sharing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera MP3 files are awfully similar."
