Fair enough if people cant see what you're doing, but if its loud enough for the whole place to hear just get a pair of headphones!

Yeah, this was my thought, sounds like the whole thing could have been avoided with a simple headset. Who goes out in public blaring their music/conversations/etc for everyone?

Well, according to the article (which you must not have read), the man was wearing earphones but was hearing impaired. If you are wearing earphones, you can't always tell how much people around you can hear. I've got good hearing and my wife has occasionally had to tell me to turn a movie down that I was watching on the computer while wearing earphones. I can only imagine that it would be harder for someone who was hearing impaired to know how loud it was to other people around him.

Seriously people, please RTFA:

Sorensen said the company on Thursday reviewed video footage of the incident, which captures Hopkins? family and the man on his computer.

?The gentleman was conducting a webcam conversation and wearing ear buds as he is hearing impaired,? she said. ?In approaching the gentleman, the restaurant manager on duty witnessed nothing inappropriate but did confirm it was a webcam conversation with a female. The manager asked him to lower his voice and avoid using any profanity (which the customer said he was using). The gentleman apologized and agreed to do so.?

misleading title. He wasn't watching porn he was video chatting with a topless girl. I have friends that don't like wearing clothes when they get home, they walk around topless even if I go over to hang out.

i know right i got my man boobs out now .... whatcha going to do about it ...

I pity anyone who thinks McDonald's is a family restaurant that you would find good manners and a healthy atmosphere in.

IMHO, go to any other "regular non-family" restaurant.

Except Hooters and such places I'd consider just about any place to be suitable for children, here's a bonus: McDonald's lets your children be noisy at the table etc... that's the only thing that most restaurants won't let you get away with under normal conditions, but you know what? Raise your kids properly and this will be a-ok.

If you think a family restaurant needs to look the other way when parents can't raise their children, fine, but don't suddenly expect that someone having a slightly arousing experience at that place to be an unacceptable sin.

By the way, I'll take a kid witnessing foul language over horrible news about beheaded people and the praise of killing of terrorists any day.

As for latter: propaganda of brutality is never good and if you don't think your children can handle some foul language or some boobies even, then don't breast-feed and don't ever watch the news with them.

If your children can't tell nudity/"good" erotica from sin (however erotica can turn into sin is beyond me btw), then they won't tell the "good killing" (pfft) from the bad ones.

Telling your children there can be good violence and non-good violence leads to what potentially?

Your children might end up in situations where they think first-strikes are good when THEY do it.

Some of the more uptight people need a damn good reality check really.

Disclaimer: I know I brought a lot of points into my text myself, I just felt like it. Deal with it. :)

If these additional points don't apply to that lady, fine. I was just extending the topic, because I know there's a crapload of people who are just like what I depicted above.

As the article stated, they can't even be sure he was using the restaurant's WiFi. And again, a webcam chat with a topless woman (if she even was topless, since the manager couldn't confirm that) isn't really porn. If it were, there are lots of PG-13 rated movies out there that are porn as well.

I agree, I have seen many TV shows which shows ###### and asss close ups specially on HBO.. is that also porn then?lol

I am betting it wasn't a webcam conversaion at all. If you surf and download from certain sites, movie download sites pay for their service using pop ups from porn sites... i have had that happen when click on a movie and get up and walk away to grab a Pepsi then the ad finally pops up with a girl doing a webcam show saying what ever at the moment. Luckily I know its coming so when the kids are here, i always have it on mute while initializing the download in case just this happens.
