A group of internet chat room users are asking the Federal Communications Commission to crack down on internet webcam twinks.
In a letter, they call the FCC’s efforts to crack up the webcam market a “complete waste of time.”
In the letter, which was obtained by Wired, users from the internet chat rooms of a variety of groups wrote that the FCC “has been slow to implement and enforce its rules.”
A few of the sites included in the letter include a Facebook page called “Twinks for the Internet,” which features a number of “Twink” websites including one that promises to let you “spend your whole life in your webcam.”
The sites offer “free webcam time, free photos, and free porn,” the letter reads.
It goes on to suggest that the sites are “a major part of the internet’s porn ecosystem” and “are actively encouraging people to spend all their time online.”
The groups say that the webcam community “is responsible for a huge amount of porn in our country.”
One of the websites, called TwinkHub, was previously known as a “porn hub” and has since moved to a new domain.
In the letters, the groups claim that “all porn websites are part of a massive scam” and that the “Internet is rife with illegal activity” and warns that “people are literally making billions of dollars in webcam sex.”
The FCC’s attempts to crack the webcam industry have been a slow and painful process.
Earlier this year, the agency proposed regulations that would force internet service providers to block sites that use the terms “Twin Peaks” and other “Twinkle” webcamps.
Those proposals were blocked by the FCC and were appealed.
