If the webserver logfiles and ISP records have been preserved then we
should be able to tell at least between:
(a) he never visited the site in question
(b) he visited once and got the hell out of there
(c) regular visitor
(d) uploaded content
(e) a "kingpin" in the organization, admin account etc.
Would you still come across all libertarian in some of the above
cases? If I know anything about the Great British Public I don't
think most people would be sending notes to the judge.
No one is benefitting from him being in prison at the moment. Either
he's a danger to children in which case he's effectively getting off
scott-free (no need to register as a sex offender so he can wander
where he wants after prison), or we taxpayers are paying a grand a
week to destroy a man's future.
