Practically every man in the world is labeled a creep. pointless objection.
Netflix did not get this kind of response when they dabbled in child pornography their customers just stopped paying. That is Capitalism.
Collusion has never been a capital crime in the US. The other western countries were mostly monarchies so monopoly is a bit of a tradition there. Anti-trust is an American experiment.
Religions that promise punishment after death are at a bit of a disadvantage when compared to religions that promise pie in the sky.
These are observations, I won't argue or defend these points.

Looks like the Visa and Mastercard boycott worked. They refused to accept the liability of dealing with an enterprise associated with illegal content and then....

It was never about porn and always about criminal activity on their site.


"They're persecuting us because we has adult nudie content! But, uhh, we're gonna go ahead and remove all that illegal stuff now because...reasons."

Fair enough. Edited. I don’t fault anyone for falling into porn and my real hope is that men will overcome it. We especially can’t let women and children be exploited or abused.

Let’s face it that Pornhub only did this because they had to and not because of some elevated sense of morality- the creeps!
I will agree that most, if not all, professional porn companies are definitely filled with creeps who pedal flesh and can't help but dehumanize the prostitutes they use.

I would think they might have done it also because if the illegal material is on their servers doesn't that put them in possession of child pornography and other illegal material. I think there may be more to the story still to unfold. If there was child abuse and child porn on their servers then I would hope the owners of Pornhub and the executives of the company would be charged.

I want to know if Pornhub will do anything about sites they are partnered with. Basically Phub is a catch all with most of their content coming from partial teaser clips from other pay porn sites. So site x uploads a cut down 5 minute version of a 25 minute scene they have on their site behind a paywall. So the hope is someone sees the 5 minute version and wants to join site x to see the full 25 minute video. So since Phub is kind of the center of the online porn universe in a way will they do anything as far as policing either the partnered content providers or the sites that post adds on pornhub directing people to sites that may still display illegal or borderline content.

My guess is no way in hell.

The bigger problem is there are a lot of people out there that will be pissed because they want the videos of girls who look like they're 15.

Show me where MasterCard limited gun sales please. Or are you giving us false information?
Not Mastercard, but a processor of transactions.

You've got to be pretty sick to turn this into an argument about freedom of trade.
Is not an argument for freedom of trade. Anyone who believes in freedom would be defending visa and Mastercards right to decide not to provide services to whoever they choose.

It's statist thinking to say they must be forced to provide their services to everyone with no right to choose their customers or think they should be nationalised by the govt.

What’s their goal then? To eventually control what people buy. Their agenda is to move us along like cattle, supporting only things they support? You actually think the US will allow this to happen? We’re talking about child pornography here, there is no other opinion other than it’s wrong.
There shouldn’t be a vendor for it. In fact, we should all be outraged that there is!
Yes, they actually DO try to do this.
Example:
In NY, they tried to do JUST this - get all banking/insurance companies to STOP dealing with the gun industry to try and force them to close with lack of funding/insurance.

That being said, I ABSOLUTELY do not agree in any way with allowing child porn to go on whenever/wherever it is found. They should be PROSECUTED to fullest extent of the law (and even beyond).
BUT this is actually the CC companies trying to limit THEMSELVES getting sued for funding this....

There are a lot of people that need sent straight to God.
Child sexual predators in my opinion are the lowest form of human that exists. And they are not reformable. Well I can think of one. A guy here in NH a few years ago made the news because he begged to not be let out of prison when he was up for release. The state didn't listen and let him out. He knew he was going to offend again so he killed himself. So I give him credit for being reformed.

But it didn’t work. The CEO of visa/mastercard said it is not their place. They know their place.

Agreed -- it didn't work this time. My comment was just to show that "What’s their goal then? To eventually control what people buy. Their agenda is to move us along like cattle, supporting only things they support? "
Yes, this is exactly what they want to do.

@Girl_power, another thing that shows how they want to control OUR lives.
HOW MANY of the governors that have said "Oh, stay at home, wear masks, social distance, no vacations, don't see family" have THEMSELVES completely violated ALL of them -- why, because THEY wanted to, THEY know better, and they see themselves as above the law.
The Gov of michigan -- stated that NO boats should be put in the water. Her husband then called HIS marina, and said put HIS boat in, because I'm the gov's husband. They refused and when the story got out, the gov said "He was just kidding"
Cuomo got pilloried for telling NYs to NOT get with family over Thanksgiving and don't travel, but HE said he was meeting with his elderly mother and his family. He then said, no, I will work instead and NOT have them here.
What did he then do? He TRAVELLED to his GF's house WITH his mother for Thanksgiving.
Another gov went on vacation to Mexico with his whole family right after telling everyone to stay at home for Thanksgiving.

See?
