    OMG! That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. "Stop child porn" my @ss. That's not going to stop anything. That's just a stupid excuse to embarass people.

        Some visiting professor was giving a talk at a university near me. He has a USB drive with his talk on it. When he hooked it up to the computer, it instantly started to open up all his pictures, which included some porn. So there he is in front of an auditorium with his porn projected on the screen. I heard he didn't react & just proceeded with his talk.

              I had no idea they could search your laptop. Thank you for the warning. So sorry it happened to you.

                I freakin can not believe that!!!!! WTF?? I have been through many of customs with my laptop and no one has ever asked me to turn it on. Ladies and Gent, next time you go through DO NOT ERASE YOUR STUFF... Just take the battery out and put it in your luggage or so purse and dont say a word!!!! Or just make sure the battery isnt charged and dont carry the plug in your carryon. THOSE MF!!! I am really upset about this!

                  My husband travels back and forth from Canada to the USA for business. He's had to turn his laptop on at both sides of the border. They want to make sure it's a working laptop and not some other kind of electrical equipment. I don't think they've actually gone through his files though, he's just had to turn it on.

                    They went through my camera pictures too.... although there were only 6 on there. I went and looked up the laws on this and it is totally legal. I felt pretty violated at the time though.
