Subject: New FBI/Scotland Yard investigate rotten.com

Just a week after the bonsaikitten fiasco....

According to a report in The Indpendent:

A further insight into the extent of child abuse and exploitation
published on the internet was revealed yesterday when British detectives
said they were trying to close a website showing pictures of a man eating
a dismembered baby.

Scotland Yard is liaising with the FBI in the US to close the website,
based in California, which has been linked with the ritual abuse of
children. Last night the website was still accessible.

The site in question is rotten.com, which has posted a story about it in
the editorial section at http://www.gapingmaw.com

Rotten.com, which hosts both bonsaikitten.com and nude photos of antiporn activist Donna Rice Hughes, has a distinguished history of daring folks to sue them:

The "dead-baby" site in question:
