Update: blogger cleared of obscenity

Quick update: In October last year I wrote about a certain blogger, who I didn't name, who had been charged under the obscene publications act. He'd written a rather dreary torture porn piece including the members of the pop band Girls Aloud.

As I said at the time "Either I'm hopelessly jaded or getting depraved and corrupted is a lot duller than I remember." I don't approve of the piece but the idea that to write it was a criminal offence whilst foul films like SAW are on general release is idiotic. Thankfully the courts appear to have agreed with me, at last.

The case was dropped because "The prosecution was unable to provide sufficient evidence... so took the decision there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction."
