#Porn and #gadgets: Towards #Digital misuse!>?!>

Recently, I came across two incidents while working on my IT profession. Normally in Nepal (at least at NHRC), an IT administrator should know everything. Nothing specific, one should know just every thing. Even repairing of telephone and digital camera, finding out mobile troubleshooting, sorting out multimedia projector problems and of course photocopy/printer diagnosis! First incident happened to be like this. I got a laptop from one of senior government officers, with the complain ‘KHULDAI KHULDAINA’ simple as that sounds (the PC is not being started or powered on). When I checked, the OS was crashed because the hard disk had no space at all and not to my surprisem, it was a huge collection of viruses! The strangest thing was that within the capacity of 360GB of hard disk, apart from around 10 GB of system files, PC was full of porn movies. No any other document, only porn everywhere. And considering that person's age, it was more surprising to find those things in the machine.

 The second one happened sometime ago, with same kind of repairing stuff. I got a laptop from a well settled married lady. In her desktop, there was a picture of her with her male partner during a foreign visit. They didn't seem to be in an acceptable position. I got amazed. I could never guess, I mean people like these are brave enough to leave those private stuffs on a desktop of a computer that they have given for repairing.
Here, I nowhere mean to bother in their private part of lives. I have no problem with the living they have, anyone can enjoy any amount of porn and anyone may use any gadget in any ways! The only striking point in my mind is the possibilities of being misused. The guy in the first incident might leave the laptop at his home, where kids might approach those things easily. The woman in the second, she might face public shame if those pictures some how gets revealed in the internet world. And that is quite possible.
We are in the modern age (at least we claim it to be), but are those things that easily acceptable in our society? No one has forgotten the case of Nepalese Heroine Namrata Shrestha right? Many girls are being blackmailed through misuse of MMS and all and  are being exploited over and over again. I still wonder, if we live in a family, can we leave a PC full of 350GB of porn that easily? Does that (old) guy ever think what will happen if his children get into those things in early ages?
These two incidents are just the representatives, but that wakes up a serious issue yet again. Aren't these things indicating towards the digital misuse? Shouldn't we be a bit more sensible in using these things, so that at least children and teenager wouldn't use it in wrong practices? If those things (private pictures n videos) come to public access, it destroys people and families just because of a small carelessness. Shouldn't we keep private things in limited visibility rather than leaving it carelessly anywhere and everywhere?
Life goes on, but do we ever think such small misuses giving huge impact? :)
