• In Response to: I have reported Filmtracks.com as a VIOLATOR OF DECENCY to the FCC and ICRA (Stanley Peck)


> NOTICE OF VIOLATION:

I thought I'd follow up on this Stanley Peck garbage for curious Scoreboard minds... I received this guy's written notice and have looked into his complaint.

> I am a consumer advocate who surfs the web on behalf of the Internet
> Content Rating Association (ICRA) in enforcement of the Children's
> Internet Protection Act (CIPA), which is a federal law enacted by Congress
> in December 2000. The law demands that any U.S. site serving obscene
> content must contain ICRA content labels that will block the site from
> access in places such as schools and public libraries.

All of this turned out to be true...

> We are reporting Filmtracks.com as a violator at the worst level of
> indecency. It is a site that promotes itself within the mainstream
> entertainment industry, containing (but not restricted to) information
> about movies and music pertaining to children's films. Upon entering
> Filmtracks.com, however, a visitor is confronted by considerable obscene
> material and the site IS NOT REGISTERED with an ICRA label to restrict
> access to minors. We are herein recommending sanctions of Filmtracks.com
> to the Federal Communications Commission's Enforcement Bureau,
> Investigations and Hearings Division in Washington, D.C.

I'd say that all of this is true as well...

> The standards by which Congress has given the FCC the responsibility for

> community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to
> the prurient interest; The material must depict or describe, in a patently
> offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; and
> The material, taken as a whole, must lack serious literary, artistic,
> political, or scientific value.

Yes, all true...

> Decency Content Violations at Filmtracks.com include, but are not limited
> to:

> Erections or female genitals in detail
> Male genitals
> Female genitals
> Female breasts
> Bare buttocks
> Animal genitals
> Explicit sexual acts
> Obscured or implied sexual acts
> Passionate kissing
> Blood and gore, human beings
> Blood and gore, animals
> Blood and gore, fantasy characters (including animation)
> Killing of human beings
> Killing of animals
> Killing of fantasy characters (including animation)
> Deliberate injury to human beings
> Deliberate injury to animals
> Deliberate injury to fantasy characters (including animations)
> Deliberate damage to objects
> Deliberate destruction of government property
> Explicit sexual language
> Crude words or profanity
> Mild expletives
> Promotion of alcohol use
> Promotion of drug use
> Gambling
> Promotion of weapon use
> Promotion of discrimination or harm against people
> Material that might be perceived as setting a bad example for young children
> Material that might disturb young children
> Material that might be perceived as destructive to moral integrity

I'm sure that if you dig deep enough into all the comment areas (and the Fuax Pas page itself qualifies for many of these offenses), I'm sure a person could find all of the above. This Stanley Peck character reportedly visited over 10,000 individual comments on the site.

> Material that might be deemed as dangerous to the security of the United States

This one, though, is pure comedy!

> The above indecency meets FCC guidelines as "language or material

> measured by contemporary community Internet standards for the public
> access medium, sexual or excretory organs or activities."
> Filmtracks.com is especially indecent in areas of language and sexual

Probably true, yes....

> Filmtracks.com must immediately register for an ICRA rating of
> "Restricted - Adult" or face possible fines or closure by the
> FCC.

Ummm, no. Here's the part where this Peck fellow is using scare tactics to try to force websites into submission. There is no damn action whatsoever that this idiot can take against my site. Everything he speaks of is based on recommendations and voluntary action.

> The label is easy to obtain, and is the right and moral action to take.

I think the fine was $5. Or label. Or whatever it's called.

I've stopped paying attention to this person, and I suspect that he may be associated with those Ministry for the Films of Christ freaks who attacked the site several years ago. I wish him speedy mental decline.
