    I think the porn they list is about the most normal thing about these guys:

    Is “BDSM Sklavin Züchtigung im dunkeln Hobbykeller teen fesselspiele.avi” exactly what it says on the tin, or are there hidden depths?

  4. Aloisius says:

    While it is all the rage to ridicule Catholic priests these days, I would like to point out that the Vatican does have a few thousand non-priestly employees.

  5. davidgervais says:

    They (adults) are entitled to watch porn if they want.  They might need the education, priests and others as well.  However, shouldn’t they pay for their educational materials / porn like everybody else?

    Whole thing easily explained:  unsecured wifi and Berlusconi.

  7. vonbobo says:

    The vatican plays FSX and watches porn!? Do they accept new members?

  8. Repurposed says:

    They’re undermining the sanctity of traditional media!

  9. Seems strange that they need to download this stuff considering the Vatican has an enormous collection of erotic art and secret archives containing just about every banned book ever printed.

    Dear torrentfreak: this playing coy bullshit is infantile. Report or STFU.

      We won’t link to our discoveries here, but feel free to do your own ‘research’ using the titles shown above.

      WA = Whipped Ass
      RS77 = Russian Slaves
      TPH = Transsexual Pussy Hunters

      How lazy are you?

      • Warren says:

        It’s not my job to do your work for you. Apparently you don’t or can’t understand that fact.

        • teapot says:

          My work? Are you brain damaged? So you expect every article to contain every conceivable detail possible? Do you also expect them to teach English in the article in case the reader cannot read English?

          Did it occur to you that making these accusations and linking to the specific illegal downloads may open them to legal action from both the content producers and the Vatican?

            case the reader cannot read English?

            On a general readership site like BoingBoing, one would expect obscure domain-specific terms to be defined, otherwise it’s just “there’s a story here, but we’re not saying what it is.”

            On the other hand,  readers of torrentfreak may be familiar with the initialisms, so this might represent an impedance mismatch.  The job of the summary ought to be to bridge those gaps where they exist.

          • Girard says:

            On a general readership site link Boing Boing one might also expect especially NSFW terminology to be elliptically referenced rather than listed out in excruciating detail?

          • Funk Daddy says:

            nuh uh, I bet you dimes to dildos that BoingBoing proprietors/contributors expect you have the ability to find out if you want to know for certain, or accept that porn means porn if that is your level of interest.

            I mean c’mon, the screen cap in the post contains “BDSM”, which isn’t at all torrentfreak specific.

          • wysinwyg says:

             You are on the internet.  If you are using firefox or MS internet explorer there is probably a small box in the upper right hand corner of your screen.  If you see something you do not understand you can type what you’re trying to figure out in that box and you will almost instantly find out what you need to know.  You can type in a question pretty much exactly as you’d ask a human being and get a fairly salient response probably like 95% of the time.

          • teapot says:

            Thanks for your comparatively sensible reply. To be clear, those “terms” are not “domain-specific”. The people who created those torrent files chose the specific title of the files, the title is common across all torrent sites. Torrents often have their contents obscured by abbreviations in order to make their content less obvious to people trawling your filesystem or rightsholders looking for seeders to bust.

            Googling any of the titles in that screencap will pretty quickly let you find out what the torrents contain. Some sites even have a handy title thumbnail and video screens links.

          • Warren says:

            If reporting details puts someone at risk, those details may not be entirely in the realm of fact. If the details are not in the realm of fact, it’s inappropriate to report them; it’s little more than rumor mongering.

            You seem intent on offering excuses rather than following through. Why is that?

          • Funk Daddy says:

            In the time it took you to post, read, respond, you could have easily satisfied your thirst for detail yourself, as it was suggested in the article. 

            Also, what level of journalistic standard did you say you require from who again, on what subject? I missed that part. (lol)

          • Warren says:

            In the time it took *you* to post, you could have done the footwork yourself, and offered the requested information.

            When challenged for evidence or corroborating content, it is *never* the job of the challenger to find that content.

            bOINGbOING presents itself as a news site. Stories like this and comments like the ones I’ve seen here – seeking to deflect a reasonable request and being inappropriately defensive of a poorly-referenced story – do not elevate the quality of its content.

            lol.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            bOINGbOING presents itself as a news site.

            No.

          • Warren says:

            So I’m not to take anything I see on BB as news, or vetted information, or reliable? That is surprising, and yes, I genuinely am asking.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            Although there may be news on BB, you’ll be happier if you view it through an Op Ed filter.

          • Warren says:

            I’ll keep that in mind, thanks.

          • Funk Daddy says:

             No, BoingBoing does not present itself as  news site, your mistake from the get go. And why on earth would I help the willfully helpless?

          • Funk Daddy says:

             B. Whining is not challenging.

          • Warren says:

            Oh *do* autocopulate.

          • teapot says:

            So you are brain damaged, thanks for the clarification.

            You seem intent on offering excuses rather than following through.

            you could have done the footwork yourself, and offered the requested information.

            LIKE I DID IN MY FIRST REPLY TO YOU?

          • Warren says:

            You mean this?

            ‘WA = Whipped Ass
            RS77 = Russian Slaves
            TPH = Transsexual Pussy Hunters’

            Sorry, I was looking for URL’s, not expansions of abbreviations, given this:

            ‘We won’t link to our discoveries here’

            You do know what a LINK is, right? It’s that thing that’s a different color from the surrounding text, and when you click it, magical things happen to the glowing thing in front of your face.

            And if you’re going to continue the ad hominem, all you’re proving is your inability to carry on a useful conversation.

            (Somehow, I get the feeling it’s the same way with you IRL, and you have a hard time grasping why no one can tolerate being in the same room with you for more than five minutes, because you’re unable to recognize your own sanctimonious puerility.)

            I’m done with you. Go back to the Cub Scout troop you’re a member of and yuk it up with the other barely-cognizant nine-year-olds.

          • teapot says:

            If you are incapable of operating Google then my assertion is proven.

            Thanks for your smugness. You know you didn’t originally ask for a LINK, right? Of course you knew, you’re just moving the goal posts in a vain effort to validate your laziness.

            FYI I’ve posted more links on BB than you’ve posted comments on anywhere. I’m a web designer, not just some guy who is “spamming comment threads with my delusions of wittiness”.

            ad hominem
            “Apparently you don’t or can’t understand that fact.”
            “Somehow, I get the feeling it’s the same way with you IRL, and you
            have a hard time grasping why no one can tolerate being in the same room with you for more than five minutes, because you’re unable to recognize your own sanctimonious puerility”.
            Way to take the higher ground, guy.

            I’m done with you. Suits me. Go back to CSM where the readership doesn’t have the same mental capacity of the average BB reader.

  11. teapot says:

    WA is from the Whipped Ass website. That shit rocks.

    kink.com makes pretty much the best BDSM around so at least they’re pirating quality :)

  12. Curies says:

    Is this another one of those multinational corporations still, to a great extent, shifting the burden of paying for civilization through taxes, onto the rest of us? 

    Does the pope shit in the woods? 

  13. Mister44 says:

    Meh – I don’t blame them at all. They are human, after all. And with the whole celibate thing its probably a healthy outlet.

  14. rocketpj says:

    I don’t blame them either.  However, until they stop trying to block access to contraception, specifically condoms, I am going to keep judging their hypocritical evil asses.

  15. Trespass22 says:

    Bill Maher would have a field day with this story…

  16. Paul Renault says:

    What porn do they watch in the Vatican?  Nun.

    /I can’t believe I’m the first to post this old joke.

    The Pontifical Swiss Guard consists of 110 men — most single and in their twenties. Dollars to donut holes those are your downloaders.
