AOL would undoubtedly be a VERY VERY unhappy camper to hear about this.
I URGE anyone who received this to send immediate e-mail to
POSTMASTER@aol.com and SYSADMIN@aol.com and even HELP@aol.com. Enclose
the offensive message and complain fervently.
Child Porn, no matter how promoted, is illegal in the US and no ISP is
going to knowingly expose themselves to a criminal charge.
