NewgonWiki is moving to a new domain (yet to be decided, but very soon). We will then create a public forum within 10-12 weeks. There is a slight possibility that will expire in early December and therefore not redirect to the new NewgonWiki domain. In that case, JohnHolt will post a notice on BoyChat and BoyLinks will carry the new URL.

Bill Thompson

From NewgonWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Dr Bill Thompson, formerly a Reading University academic, is known widely for his publications on pornography, moral panic and censorship. He has also published on debunking false allegations of child abuse and satanic panic and has stood as an expert witness in numerous child abuse cases. Thompson has legal clearance to investigate potentially indecent images of children, using this to advise defendants on their pleas.


In 2002, Thompson's home and office were raided for child pornography after police failed to take into account his expert status. The case was later dropped, but only after a damaging, year long suspension from his university.
