    There are some rather astonishingly bad people in this business, as in any business I suppose. If he's guilty I hope he goes to jail for a very, very long time.

    How about innocent until proven guilty?

    I am sure that this forum is hardly the place for speculation as to whether someone is guilty of child porn possession

    Innocent until proven guilty is assumed, if that's how the justice system works in Canada, as in the US.

    But Julian, no one here is speculating, nor has anyone claimed that Dufresne is either innocent or guilty. No need to shut ABWers up just for commenting on the reports provided to newspapers by the police in Canada.

    Actually, that's true. This thread should have been opened in the ABestWeb Virtual Family forum where we can speculate all we want about most anything.
    As for speculation...
    Definitions of speculation on the Web:

    * guess: a message expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence
    * a hypothesis that has been formed by speculating or conjecturing (usually with little hard evidence); "speculations about the outcome of the election"; "he dismissed it as mere conjecture"
    Of course it's only a matter of time before speculation turns to evidence, which I "speculate" has already happened. And people usually are not arrested on speculation, but suspicion which is defined differently. And of course the perp won't be guilty until proven guilty in a court of law. That's the beauty of the legal system in a free republic. And what's more, we're allowed to speculate freely...

    I've been a vocal advocate of publicizing appropriate information about sex offenders in our communities, but this looks like something very different: an attempt to attack a company based on the apparently unrelated (alleged) activities of one employee or independent contractor. I don't think it belongs here, nor in the other affiliate-marketing forums where it's been posted.

    Wow! Of course only nakedgamer can answer to that charge, but I sure didn't take it that way. Seemed like he was just establishing a reference...

    The individual would be guilty of the crime, obviously not the company. I can see the stretch of an attack on a company, but I'm sure we can all agree that there is no way Maxbounty management / owners would endorse, condone nor much less support such activity, that would be a ludicrous stretch so logically there is no guilt by proxy, employment nor any other possible tie between MB and Dufresne.

    Why on earth would I attack Maxbounty? I have no ulterior motive and resent such an accusation. I simply included who he worked for (or once worked for) to establish what point it would have to the affiliate community before I would post anything on ABW. You never know some people here might have worked with him.

    Otherwise I would be asked the obvious question "Why is this posted on ABW and who is this guy?" I could post dozens of sex offender trial details here at ABW but they have no reference to this site, but this particular case does, whether it's a touchy subject or not.

    As to speculation and posting to the right forum this is the same forum I posted about Shawn Hogan and DP case as well. While that is a civil trial and this would be criminal it's still basically the same thing when it comes to speculation. As an American I assume folks are innocent until proven guilty (though nowadays the government makes that harder and harder to trust), and know that Canada has the same presumptions.

    It does not say anywhere that Maxbounty, or any additional employees, are being charged or accused in such a matter. To make that presumption would be illogical.

    Thanks for the info naked

    I take this business really seriously and we should be aware of others who may be conducting themselves in a disreputable manner.

    If he is proven guilty, does he have a place in our business, forums, as a JV?
