Authors who communicate in the forums consider child abuse to be “normal” and find a large number of like-minded people. The inhibition thresholds drop. And that’s what characterizes this criminal situation. If we are to actively combat child abuse on the internet, we must also talk about the legal regulations on data storage. One does not work without the other.
