Do we know for a fact that he *paid* from his card? I know that some
of those types of sites require credit card info as proof of age -- I
guess the "logic" goes that if you're old enough to have a cc, you're
old enough to see boobs and stuff. 

A couple of years ago, a very young guy where I used to work asked me
to put my credit card info into a site like that so he could "see some
poon." He assured me that it was just to weed out minors and that
nothing would be charged to my card. But I didn't like the possibility
of having to fight unauthorized charges on my card or even of those
people having my name and other info, so I refused.

That's the first thing I thought of when Pete said that he used his
credit card to access one of those sites -- that he probably thought
they would just auto-verify his card, let him in and then not keep and
record his info.
