  I reported this as a malicious thread. that will get BP's attention to the photos quickly.

  I also called the "office" and left a message on their answering machine.
They are probably not up yet in their neck of the woods. hopefully they will take care of it real soon.

  I sent several mesages to BP. I hope to see the photos removed the sooner the better, if they can do something to catch him and save this little girl.

  I can't find anything that looks like porn. Has it been removed already?

  I would think the BP people could do a IP trace on this. It's no doubt coming from outside the U.S.

Regardless of what or where, the authorities need to be contacted immedietly!

This is something that really gets my ire up...These type of people don't deserve a trial when caught!

  Page 9 now Carolyn. OMG that is just horrible. BP usually gets stuff like this down pretty quickly.

I hope they get the police involved somehow!!!!!!

  P.S

I've said this before and will say it again!

Better Photo.com Inc needs to require not only registration, but verification of legitimate email validation!

No more of this signing in via a masked or phoney IP etc!

It may not halt these problems, but I bet it would slow it down.

To the people at Better Photo; YOU have a responsibility to the public at large! Saying it's not your fault does NOT excuse you from this!

Sarah G   The adult certainly has a fixation. The child unfortunately doesn't know that the adults fixation is inappropriate.

It's scary and very upsetting.

Sarah G   I'm tempted to contact the Redmond, WA police department.

BP should. It is their job to do so. Any laws out there that obligate them to?

  I found it. I emailed the computer guy at BP with the links. They aren't up yet out there.. It's only 7:30, so just hang in there, they will fix it soon.

  To have a free gallery you just need an e-mail address. That needs to change I think that BP needs to request a DL or Passport copy to have a gallery. To keep this place safe an Family friendly I would do it.

  Carolyn, when I was in Mexico I was working in a Cyber Caffe and they didn't have the tools to block things like this to happen, and my work was to "Clean" the computers, you don't idea of what I saw in that place, so every time when I see happening again I'm just sick and want to have him in front of me and killing him with my own hands.

  Well, I wrote that person a very brief email with plenty of expletives!!!!!

I sincerely hope they have reported the IP address to the authorities. I know this is possible. How horrible! I think that sickos like that get their jollies more off of the response they get than the content of the pics. Well, who ever it was can rest assured that we will get our jollies when we see them shackled by and behind metal!!

  So did I, Susan. I hope they get what's coming to them. If it could make ME cry, it was pretty horrible.

  I would not try to e-mail this sicko. that is what he/she wants, is attention. besides, if the feds really did get involved and sized a computer you sure dont want your e-mail on his acct.
