It looks like kneejerk reactions to the 'net may have eased off a bit, if the rest of the meeja follow the BBC . Look at these quotes:

The judge: "Although the internet can be a force for very great good it is not always so and its abuse can slip under the guard of parents who are not aware what their children can get involved in while on the web."

The police Chief Inspector: "although the internet undoubtedly helped him to contact the girl, it cannot be blamed for his actions after this point"

Given that this was a case of a 12 year old girl, I can just imagine what the raving loonies at the Mail and similar will report.

Oh that's easy, the Mail will just start hinting that the judge is soft on kiddie fiddlers because he secretly supports them... and we all know why that would be don't we. Cue public outrage, increase in the sentance and talks again about government control over the net to protect all the children (most of whom are employed in a large gothic structure next to the Thames).
