That is just as well. They now are at least advised that not only is it
considered a crime here to possess and/or distribute child pornography,
it is also a crime to communicate the intent to do so. The responsibility
to investigate the matter further or not is well out of my range, and
well into their hands at this point. Perhaps if afforded the same
opportunity again, I might also post Interpol. Somehow, I am not
so sure the opportunity will present itself again. As it goes, porn
related spam is in the 0.1% range for spamitem frequency on the
account for which I am reporting, so it always takes me by surprise
when I get one. But I don't recollect previously seeing anything
that left me feeling as uncomfortable as this one did: The hackles
still rise for the completely unfamiliar and instincts override more
carefully considered judgement calls. This "thing" has no business
being in my Inbox: It will be out of my Inbox already, or I will
have a piece of its hide for a souvenir reminder of the "visit".
Ennyhoo, another big thanks for the assist. I have independently
established the value of Mr. Spade's tools in a virm related matter.
With increasing familiarity with the tool I sense I will be doing a lot
more digging and a lot less begging for help.
