2003-04-22 12:49:40 PM  
I'd hit it
2003-04-22 12:49:55 PM  
something stuck in your throat, Godzirrra?
2003-04-22 12:50:18 PM  
Research...him and Pete Townshend
2003-04-22 12:50:38 PM  
Okay, this is creepy. This guy looks like at least 3 professors at my uni. I'd hate to be in this guy's class and have this guy in a place of authority. And you think you know someone...

2,000 images? Was he trying to beat the USPS's record?
2003-04-22 12:50:50 PM  
thats the face of satan
2003-04-22 12:50:53 PM  
This is the same university that booked students for using Kazaa for swapping music.
2003-04-22 12:50:54 PM  
Yeah .. just like Saddam was only doing research on weapons of mass destruction
2003-04-22 12:50:55 PM  
Mikemir: I'm assuming that's just a joke making light of the usual boobies posts, not a sick pedophile comment....
2003-04-22 12:51:08 PM  
Whatever happened to the good ol' dodge van, candy and polaroid as the pedophile's only equipment?
2003-04-22 12:51:23 PM  
"In the stacks"

Where is this?
2003-04-22 12:51:29 PM  
C'mon people, he was just doing research because he was abused as a child and is writing a book. Oh wait, that was that British guy.

Freaky Bastard....
Aww he's got the puppy look on his face... let's buy him a present.... (Not)
2003-04-22 12:51:45 PM  
Well, that's only 1.28 days per picture. Not too shabby.
2003-04-22 12:52:10 PM  
Pete Townshend unavailable for comment.
2003-04-22 12:52:11 PM  
Han, good assumption
2003-04-22 12:52:40 PM  
"Day or so had passed when I popped the clutch, gave the tranny a spin, and slid on into The Stinky Pinky Gulp N' Guzzle Big Rig Snooze-A-Stop. There I was browsin' through the latest issue of Throb, when I saw Bambi starin' at me from the back of a milk carton. Well, my heart just dropped. So, I decided to do what any good Christian would. You cannot imagine how difficult it is to hold a half gallon of moo juice and polish the one-eyed gopher when you're doin' seventy-five in an eighteen-wheeler. I never thought missing children could be so sexy. Did I say that out loud?"
2003-04-22 12:52:46 PM  
The police found no evidence that Pete had downloaded images on his computer. He was cleared. Just a little tidbit for you folks. Flame away.
2003-04-22 12:52:47 PM  
so, someone needs a girlfriend
connetidork: let me get this straight, are u having a go at van owners? :)
2003-04-22 12:53:07 PM  
Nah, I think he was just doing research on the effects of sexual exploitation and abuse on children so that *some time* in the future, he could start a foundation to help can't very well help what you don't understand, now can you?

What a lamer. That's probably the stupid defense his lawyers will use, too...
2003-04-22 12:53:07 PM  
Hey, this is my school! This was in our paper a few days ago but I didn't read the article.
2003-04-22 12:53:22 PM  
When will people get a clue. You keep your porn on your home PC.
2003-04-22 12:53:23 PM  
illicit kiddie porn ... as opposed to legitimate kiddie porn
2003-04-22 12:53:55 PM  
Mike: In that case, it was a hilarious post!
2003-04-22 12:54:29 PM  
Okay, I don't get it...
Why kiddie p0rn?
I mean, why do you want to stare at 5 year old kids when you can stare at Aria?(NSFW).
2003-04-22 12:54:48 PM  
UPenn has a nicer 'ARTS' library. probably with a nicer librarian too.
2003-04-22 12:55:21 PM  
Why would anyone download kiddie porn at WORK, onto UNIVERSITY owned computers? Is anyone this stupid?

Oh wait, I just answered my own question...
2003-04-22 12:55:33 PM  
I don't see anything wrong with kiddie porn. Not all kids just get handed lunch money from their parents. Some kiddies have to earn it. And if that means putting Crisco on their undeveloped areas and gettin' dirty... so be it.
2003-04-22 12:55:51 PM  
Gesthemane, that's excellent news, thanks.
2003-04-22 12:55:59 PM  
Did it say 5 year old kids?

Maybe it was 17 year olds?

Also, it says "2000 illicit images". I wonder how many were of the "kiddie porn" variety?
2003-04-22 12:56:20 PM  
How do we know he did it? No fool would keep that shiat on thier work computer. This smells fishy.
2003-04-22 12:56:40 PM  
I love how TSG always starts off their write-ups like the opening of a Twilight Zone episode. "Meet Paul Mosher. By day, the University of Pennsylvania Vice Provost and Director of Libraries. By night, a man with unusual tastes in pornography. The kind of pornography found in... The Twilight Zone."

For "Twilight Zone", insert "Internet". Or "your freaky uncle's computer".
2003-04-22 12:57:07 PM  
Is it just me or is it REALLY STUPID to do some like this at your job ? Or can I just assume that all Farkers at work right now just automatically click on the Boobies links, and hope that the IT guys aren't logging anything, and that no one will audit your computer ? I'm so paranoid about computer security, I never crash my computer, I just give it nervous breakdowns. hopefully he gets what he deserves.
2003-04-22 12:57:11 PM  
He's part of UPenn's diversity outreach program, which is to hire employees whose sexuality doesn't fit the rigid (snicker) conceptions of the white male phallocentric hierarchy.

2003-04-22 12:57:25 PM  
maybe he is Al-Qaeda and they had the sekrit messijes in them
2003-04-22 12:57:53 PM  
Glacius, excellent bloodhound gang ref.

/the lapdance is always better...
2003-04-22 12:58:54 PM  
This is my alma mater, I'm afraid....

2003-04-22 12:59:21 PM  
good to see u on the case stebain, godspeed!
2003-04-22 12:59:45 PM  
Is it just me or should we be focusing on the people putting these pictures on the net, rather than the people downloading it. Obviously, both are criminals.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
2003-04-22 01:00:03 PM  
Obviously doing research

Yeah, like Polanski was trying to "relax his model" to "take some pictures".
2003-04-22 01:00:05 PM  
Bass555: i'm listening to XPN online now as i type this. go quakers (although i'm a measly state system grad)
2003-04-22 01:00:20 PM  
shiat, i remember this dude from when I was at Stanford (82 - 86) ... nasty ...
2003-04-22 01:00:45 PM  
excelent bloodhound gang reference

remember a lap dance is so much better when the stripper is crying.

This is the same university that booked students for using Kazaa for swapping music.

Um, no they didnt. In the dorms they sent around people to check the box that disables sharing of content with kazaa to save bandwidth. Maybe you are thinking of Penn State.
2003-04-22 01:01:28 PM  

Bloodhound Gang....

/am i wrong donnie am i wrong?
2003-04-22 01:01:30 PM  
I hate kiddie porn as much as anyone else, but are we talking actual kiddie porn here, or the new definition: "People who look like they could be under 18" porn.

At one point I believe the movie "American Pie" qualified as kiddie porn, though the law has since been revised.
2003-04-22 01:02:15 PM  
"participated in senior computing and academic information planning bodies."


nothing senior about those bodies...
2003-04-22 01:02:27 PM  
this smells really fishy though, its like that episode of the net (they made a show after the movie)where a congresmanns daughter clicked on a link that looked like a kids site and it actualy brought her to something that uploaded porn to their computer. And the press found out right then.
