I agree, but at the same time, the time has to come when all strong and able coins have to take that leap out of the nest and fly. Something has to come about to trigger a decoupling.

Child pornography is deplorable, and those who propagate it should be prosecuted.

"The data capacity on the Bitcoin blockchain is only 80 bytes, which is far too small to harbour many images, however it’s more than enough for links and pointers — which is primarily what researches discovered."

A url stored that points to illegal content (in this case, child-****) is treated differently under the law than the illegal content itself... otherwise, every digital intermediary who caches a url on the web without knowing it's content would be liable.

A poison pill. What a brilliant attempt to try to bring down bitcoin or any crypto that supports user supplied data, especially when the “anti human trafficking bill” is being introduced.

they can use this to shut down any decentralized structure.

Heard this brought up before.  

Is there child **** on the internet? 

Has the internet been shut down?

Is there **** being sent through the postal service?

Have we shut down the postal service? 

Those creeps will be found out one way or another and will receive do punishment.  

I guess the counter argument would be you are not downloading the whole internet when accessing it, and likewise the postal system. An apt analogy would be all the stamps used by the postal system and the internet browser codes having childporn embedded in them. 

Still, I think the worst possible solution would be to ban bitcoin. That would be going backwards.

If it gets banned for something like this it's only going to be by the most conservative countries.  The short term outlook would be to expect bearish activity if the media continues to push this angle like crazy.  Plenty of folks will be looking to short BTC and time the market for some quick money.
