8th October   Which Nutters (updated)

The inevitable continuation of the market for hardcore leads the nutters into ever more desperate measures. They have now taken to hassling customer care accreditation. This is a letter I have received from Strawberry X  

We were very proud to have been a member of the Which? webtrader scheme, unfortunately, due to a complaint from a member of the public, Which? have suspended our use of their logo.

Uncharacteristically, Which? wont give any reason, or explanation of the complaint. However from their original email to me, it concerns the VRA and was a list of questions that read like a standard nutter email. We replied fully, and Which? contacted trading standards for clarification. Islington trading standards replied explaining in 1 paragraph the VRA 1984. They did not say whether we were breaking the law or not and left the decision to Which?

Needless to say, Which? run away quickly. I have sent two emails to Which? specifically describing nutter behaviour and asking if this was the case. Both times Which? have circumvented the issue.

As there's not really any higher customer care accreditor than the consumers association, this is a harsh blow.

What will the nutters go for next? We're used to them talking to police and trading standards, Then they started on banks and credit card payment solutions. Now they're even trying to attack us through a customer care certificate? Is this fucking desperation or what?

The letter from Which? read as follows

We were promoted to investigate this matter following a complaint   made to Which? Webtrader.  When complaints about members of the Which?   Webtrader scheme are brought to our attention we raise the issue with the   trader. On the basis of the information that was provided to us by  Strawberry X and then Trading Standards we requested that you removed the  logo. We will be confirming to the individual concerned the action that we  have taken.

   Thank you for taking prompt action to remove the logo. Should the   legal situation change in the future we would be happy to receive a new   application from Strawberry X.com.

   Yours sincerely

   Lesley Maslen
   Which? Webtrader Manager

And before we rush to blame the Internet Vigilante Nutters they have sent me the following email

For clarification purposes, the IV have have had NO correspondence with the 'Which? Webtrader Manager', which may be the implication your viewers perceive rom the report featured on your website. We needed to point this out, as we have no quarrel with Strawberry X.

8th October   Playing at Censorship

Thanks to adult-sex-toys-direct.co.uk for another example of nutter harrassment:

We have obviously hit the big time, we have received the attached email from the nutter farm. It really makes you wonder what planet these guys are on, did anyone see the recent programme on channel 4 when "Golden Showers" were shown!!!

It is assumed that you are unaware that this is in fact illegal. Upon inspection it would appear your webapge, is currently infringing upon  the mailorder aspect of 'R18 Adult video works distribution' - please see  below current 'Home Office' legislation:-

....

We are hoping that you can make the alterations to your webpage, in order  that it complies to current UK law, without the involvement of Trading  Standards and/or Police. Please take our recomendations seriously, as our  workload ensures that this matter is not open for disscusion and we will  have no alternative but to forward our full reports should this illegal  activity not cease within one week of the date of this e-mail.

Best regards

27th September   NutterCam

The Internet Vigilante Nutters have found yet another target in their quest to drive the porn market underground. This time a site called www.britcams.com is under seige. Perhaps the nutters ought to look to the world news. The Taleban have the strictest censorial regulations in the uncivilised world and predictably they are also the biggest shits in the uncivilised world.

See a comment in Legal Debate about whether video based material is governed by the Video Recordings Act anyway. Saying that, Britcams do sell videos of their material which will then be governed by the VRA.

Dear Sirs,

We recently received a complaint from a member of the public, regarding the activities of the following webpage:-

www.britcams.com

Upon inspection it would appear your webpage, is currently infringing upon the several aspectsof video recordings act It is assumed that yourself or your company are unaware of the current law within this country.

Please can you ensure, that the above mentioned website, complies with current UK law (highlighted above), within 7 working days of the date of this e-mail. If these modifications are executed, our reports will not be forwarded to local trading standards/Police.

Best regards and I look forward to any feedback you may wish to provide.

13th September   Bitching about Rockbitch

Religious nutters and councillors are trying to prevent my favourite band from playing in Wales. Rockbitch have already been banned from performing in Cardiff, but campaigners want to block their gig in Newport on September 17.

The band are famed for their refreshingly frank on-stage sex acts and nudity.

Reverend Nutter Peter Wood of Newport's Summerhill Baptist Church told NME: This is a challenge to the values of the whole of Western society. It's important we don't just dismiss these people and their views as a joke - it's actually very dangerous.

The shameful Newport Councillor Garry Brown said: I think we should all get together - the council, the magistrates, the police - and stop this.

Promoter Mike Jones said: Yes, it's an outrageous show - it's very in-your-face. But if you don't like it, don't go and see it. It's as simple as that.

9th September   UK Protection of Children Online

So we have a new bunch of nutters: UK Protection of Children Online. I would  have thought that people who really cared about children would support the transfer of the business from the black market to legitimate UK business. Any selling to children will be much better dealt with if the traders are known and above board. People won't stop buying porn just because UK traders aren't allowed to sell it, they will for sure buy from foreign companies and black market traders instead. It is for this reason that I suspect that UK Protection of Children Online are just another bunch of nutters who want to impose their own noxious morality on their fellow man.

This is an email they sent to Taboo, local government and the police: Notice that they dishonestly use mere Home Office suggestions for discussion as if they were regulations.

To whom it may concern,

We have recieved several complaints, from concerned parents, regarding the activities of the below mentioned individual(s), in your region.

Taboo Sex Toys & Lingerie Ltd.
57-58 Blackwell Street
Kidderminster
DY10 2EE

Upon inspection it would appear this organisation is blatantly breaking current UK law, regarding the distribution of 'R18' video works (aka - hard core pornography). You will see, at below webpage, the various advertisements for R18 video works:- www.taboo.co.uk

This website is infringing upon the mailorder aspect of adult video work distribution, please see below extracts:-

Source: HOME OFFICE WEBSITE

2.2 There are strict controls on the sale of videoworks which are given an R18 classification. Under Section 12 of the Video Recordings Act 1984, such videos can only be sold in a licensed sex shop - of which there are approximately 90 in England and Wales plus two in Scotland - to adults aged 18 and over. They cannot be LEGALLY SOLD BY MAIL ORDER, supplied through ordinary video outlets or shown on television. THEIR SUPPLY OTHER THAN IN a licensed sex shop would be a criminal offence subject to a fine of up to 5,000, six months' imprisonment, or both.

Furthermore it is noted that white paper proposals plan to increase the above mentioned fine to 20,000 - an indictaion of how serious the Government take this sort of activity.

Section 12 (1) Where a classification certificate issued in respect of a video work states that no video recording containing that work is to be supplied other than in a licensed sex shop, a person who at any place other than in a sex shop for which a licence is in force under the relevant enactment-- (a) supplies a video recording containing the work, or (b) offers to do so, is guilty of an offence

The 'R18' category, required by the Video Recordings Act, is primarily for explicit videos of consenting sex between adults. 'R18' videos may be supplied ONLY IN licensed sex shops which no-one under 18 can enter.

In light above regulations, we would appreciate a swift response and an end to this illegal activity and prosecution to the maximum extent possible under UK law.

Please respond at your earliest convenience, as we need to report back to the complainees, with a conclusion on this matter.

Best regards

UK Protection of Children Online

22nd August   Nutter Dobson

www.taboo.co.uk has been targeted by Nutters:

On Sat 18,8,01 l get an e.mail from a Helen Dobson, advising me that l was breaking the law as to the posting of R18 videos, as they can only be sold in  a licensed sex shop, she also sent that e.mail to West Mercia police, and my local trading standards office, by cc on the e.mail. She has asked the police to follow it up and to use the full arm of the law to stop us trading..  Now as far as l am concerned, the sale takes place when l put the credit card
through my pdq machine, and at that point it will tell me that the c/c is authorised or not authorised, and of couse all this is done in a licensed sex shop.

The police came in the shop today, as part of license renewal, l asked them and as far as they were concerned IF it was passed by the bbfc the police have no problem.

18th August   High Priority Illegal Nutter Activity

The East Midland Internet Vigilante Nutters are continuing to harangue X-Sensual. Their latest memo certainly has a sense of raving desperation. European Human Rights legislation states that material can only be censored after justification of harm. As proof of harm from porn has proved elusive, then it seems to me that it is the Nutters who are acting illegally.

From: IV internetvigilantez@hotmail.com

To whom it may concern,

We note that your webpage is still operational and operating illegally. As no attempt has been made to rectify the illegal content of your site, we have no choice but to advance to stage 2 - 'high priority illegal activity status'.

Stage 2 'summary'

  1. Remind Notts Trading Standards of their obligations to prosecute.
  2. Inform several Notts local councillors that this activity is going on, within their environment.
  3. Forward the initial report we received; 'the parent was concerned that you had quoted a price for a video to her 12 year old child, via e-mail' to Nottinghamshire Vice Squad - this may entail additional charges under the Child Protection Act.
  4. Liase with your merchant account manager and establish what their policy is on illegal activity carried out, using their merchant services.

Regards

  Guess Who Stirred up the Brum Raids

I recently posted a news item about Birmingham sex shop raids. Guess who as owned up to making the complaints. None other than the Internet Vigilante Nutters. They have sent me the following email on the subject.

Get ready to do much more typing up of similiar stories and modifications to your 'licensed shops' list, as they go down like flies!

Much, much more to come in and around the Midlands area in the coming weeks.

Internet Vigilantes

I must admit to being a little fascinated in people who clearly derive so much pleasure from unneccessarily depriving their fellow man of the sexual pleasures of life. Perhaps they would like to inform the Melon Farmers about what their mission is and why? In particular why are they attacking legitimate businesses on technicalities such as the mail order prohibition when any success in this campaign will only lead to the re-establishment of an even more undesirable black market? Beats me.

Mediawatch-UK

  Mediawatch-UK Annual General Meeting , May 2001

From the Chairman's Keynote Speech by John Milton Whatmore

At last year's AGM I alluded to the Culture War we were waging against a society which seemed not to care that the underpinning pillars that keep Society safe, sound, tolerant and free were greatly endangered, and indeed being eroded.

During the last year have seen more depressing statistics published to support the argument that Mediawatch-UK still needs to be brave in its campaigning for honest and decent programming on Television and radio, and vigilant in its monitoring of media output and lobbying of government legislation.

  • 40% of all children born in the UK last year were born out of wedlock.
  • Teenage girls in the UK are 5 times more likely to become pregnant than any other country in Europe.
  • A recent Home Office Report published earlier this month indicated that residents in England and Wales run a higher risk of being a victim of crime, than in any country in Europe, the United States and Japan.
  • Violent crime is rising faster in Britain than anywhere in Europe too
  • Violent crime including Muggings and violent assault has risen sharply by 16% in the last year.
  • England & Wales has the second worst case history in the world for "victimisation risk" the chances of an individual becoming the victim of a crime or an attempted crime in a given year.
  • And England and Wales also topped the European league for Car Theft, Burglary, robbery, personal assault and sex attacks.

Against this backdrop we have a Film Industry forever trying to push back the barriers of taste and decency and a Film censorship body intent on becoming more and more liberal in its attitude.

We have a Television Industry, which is more concerned with ratings and driven to commercial profits than it is with supplying wholesome public broadcasting. And we have toothless watchdogs and regulatory bodies that can't or won't arbitrate in favour of taste and decency.

It is not fashionable at present to link public morals with public behaviour. Whenever I have been participating on radio programmes this year or being interviewed in the Press I have been given a fair hearing until I mention public morals, then I have been moved on to another subject.

The media does not like being reminded of the fact that it is contributing to a corruption of public morals. I have been encouraged though on several occasions when I have contributed to radiophone ins, to hear that many callers agreed with my arguments.

I said it last year and I'll repeat it again this year...THERE IS MORE REASON FOR MEDIAWATCH-UK TO EXIST NOW THAN EVER BEFORE.

Why do I assert that? Because we are now living in a society which subscribes to self-regulation...people know what's best for themselves...Society does not need to be nannied...individuals can make up their own mind what they require to lead their lives.

That enlightened attitude and liberal policy should, I venture to suggest be resisted at all corners of the argument. All the evidence suggests that it has produced a society, which at best is self-indulgent and at worst is morally and criminally corrupt.

Sociological behaviour is a very complex issue and I am not going to insult your intelligence by claiming that the principles Mediawatch-UK stands for would at a stroke solve all the problems.

But we have to help . Where has all the cultural and enlightened changes made in the last 50 years got us? The British Crime Survey has estimated that the instance of crime has risen from 500,000 in that time to a staggering 20 Million today.

  • The young gang member needs to discover right from wrong.
  • He needs to have sound role models to which he can relate.
  • The messages he receives from the airways of Television and Radio need to wholesome.
  • He needs to be encouraged to recognise the value of life and compassion to others.
  • He needs to discover that his life could be enriched through service as opposed to crime.
  • He needs to be inspired to use his talents and gifts in a constructive way.

That's quite a shopping list isn't it?

But you know mediawatch-uk can, and does, help with the process of ticking off the items on that list.

  • The Ministers and Committee Members who are pouring all this money into the welfare of this boys future need to be taking seriously, the appeals and concerns from mediawatch-uk and like-minded organisations who have a genuine contribution to make towards a Law abiding and peaceful society.

Next time you see a violent image on the screen be sure that it is not helping this boy's rehabilitation. Next time you see robbery and violence glorified on television be sure that it is not constructive to building useful role models for young people. Next time you see a national newspaper bankroll the return of a convicted criminal to this country after 40 years on the run from justice be sure that it is sending the wrong signals to young minds.

Next time to see images on TV of people taking drugs in whatever context be sure that it is contributing to ill health, misery, addiction, negative dependence and Crime. Next time you hear the reasonable tones of the liberal great and good droning on about Society lightening up and extolling Self Regulation ...be sure that it is a recipe for a Society lacking in confidence, harmony and peace.

Many years ago Mary Whitehouse said if you feed violent scenes to the public via the television screen, you will end up with a violent society.

mediawatch-uk with limited financial resources will continue to lobby Parliament, programme makers and Media Authorities. It will continue to articulate the concerns of those who believe that taste and decency are essential elements in the make up of an homogenous society. It will continue in some small way to try and influence the minds and hearts of young people like that young gang member, for the benefit of his future and ours.

Thank you all for your continuing support.
