Former Wikipedia leader reports site for hosting lolicon

Apr 14 // Brad Rice

In a fun little bit of corporate sabotage, Wikipedia co-founder Lawrence Sanger reported Wikimedia Commons to the FBI for distributing child pornography and lolicon material, specifically citing obscenity statute 1466A, what Christopher Handley was charged with.

Now, as to what the result of this will be, I don't know, but you can see one of the offending images above, taken from the lolicon page on Wikipedia. Go ahead, you shouldn't get fired for clicking on that link.

Now, what I mean by corporate sabotage is that Sanger left Wiki back in 2002 over disagreements with the company, and has since tried his hand at several wiki-like ventures, none of which have gotten anywhere near as much attention as Wikipedia and Wikimedia. Trying to tarnish the good reputation of the competition? My, that's unheard of!

So, what do you think? Is Wikipedia really just a front for the lolicon fans to secretly trade their illicit images at work, or is this just a bunch of hubbub? There is some serious questioning to be considered here when it comes to just how explicit the images available on Wiki are. I mean, you can see breasts if you look closely in the image above.
