The Justice Department arrested dozens of people after the FBI cracked a nationwide computer child porn ring. Federal agents conducted a two-year investigation of the pornographers, who used America Online to distribute child pornography and kidnap minors. The Justice Department said that while its investigation centered on AOL, the nation's largest online service with 3.5 million subscribers, agents have found pornography on all the major services. American Online says it alerted authorities, and said that while conversations between members are private, it does not knowingly tolerate the use of its network for illegal activities.
