Then you are as naive as the parents.

Please, don't take me as cold or out of context. I'm not saying what they did was right. I am saying "I can fully believe this happened and wouldn't have posted the photo in the first place, I've been to 4chan and I know how low the Internet can stoop"


Yes, but this is not about someone on 4chan, it's about a commercial radio station using their son as advertising. Big difference

Not really. Not anymore.

Where 4chan goes, the rest of the web follows. Also, by "4chan" I mean that site and those of it's ilk.

Lolcats used in adverts, lip-syncing animals, and so on. Companies want "internet marketing gurus" who "have their finger on the pulse". They want to be "cutting edge". Unfortunately that translates into "rip-off 4chan".

Might make for a good case where it will be illegal to use images like this in the future for any advertising. including handicaps, catz, or what ever meme pops up.

trying to stop people using the word retard or retarded is just.... retarded .... its a scientific term stating ones mental abilities/intelligence. below 72IQ and you are mentally retarded (may need correction on the number) .....just because this kid is autistic does not mean he is retarded, i am autistic and I have an IQ only a few points below genius
