correction: if any court found an IRC network liable for all the content that flowed over it, you wouldn't see many content providers left on the internet. it would also kill msn/aim/yahoo/icq. all online forums would be closed.

taking pills example again: if someone from sweden on efnet.ru said something to someone from australia on umich.edu, what is to happen? is [insert chat medium here] supposed to require valid forms of government identification to connect to the network? how is anyone under 18 supposed to chat? why should a an australian user have to register to comply with a US law when he is chatting with a swedish user? even if he is a sex offender, he is not a US registered sex offender, so it still wouldn't stop anything.

like i said before, you're suggesting an overly oppresive and impractical technological fix for a socialogical problem.

Again the issue is not content (although system administrators have a nasty habit of banning users on the basis of content) And again it is a matter of which side of the law you personally choose to support. Its the same situation with alcohol purchase. There will always be people who will attempt to thwart the law. In the case of sex offenders and predators and other criminal types you can count on it. Hence the need for ID.
