Randy,
 
Jay wanted me to tell you about the Pedofil.se content that I found on piratebay.org. I haven't downloaded it to verify its contents, but see attached screen shot of http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3702417/Pedofil.se (note our office IPs are banned from piratebay.org, so you can see this page by loading it in a web proxy, such as www.hidemyass.com).
 
I have no idea what the Swedish on this page says. If you want, we can ask Colin to have his wife translate it.
 
Thanks,
Ben

The last bit that seems consistently rumored is that pedofil.se was being hosted by a Danish company, until a few days ago when PRQ offered (I'm not sure how this "offer" happened) to host it. But when the Danish company got pissed at the pedophilic content, PRQ said they would host it because they are champions for Free Speech. The openly said, so the articles claim, that they don't endorse child pornography and are personally disgusted by it, but because they believe in Free Speech so much they think Free Speech should trump child porn hesitations.
 
Again, this is from the English versions of the articles and piecing together some bits and comparing them from different sites. But I wouldn't be surprised if this is blogosphere rumor-mill and not completely based in reality. For example, I don't understand/see anything about why a site called www.pedofil.se would be in Holland initially (it has .se extension).

Apparently, from what I can gather from the blogosphere, the Piratebay people own http://prq.se/ which provides the colocation for www.pedofil.se. Most of the articles are in Swedish. If you're really interested, we can ask Colin to have his wife report on it for us.... I suspect the English articles aren't as good as the original ones in Swedish.

Randy,
 
I can't ask anyone to work on child porn research, other than Colin or Ebert. The site is www.pedofil.se. It has the .se extension for Sweden and has a Swedish IP associated with it. The whois entry for this is currently wiped, but http://whois.domaintools.com/pedofil.se allows you to purchase some info about the previous 16 domain changes (I'm not sure what kind of data they archive about the 16 domain changes). I haven't checked the site yet, as I'm in a public place now. Let me know if you need anything else.
 
-Ben
