Photography is not judged by porn. VCRs are not judged by porn. Social media is not judged by image boards (which were also porn).

We pretty much owe the modern existence of technology to Ismail al-Jazari, who came up with several hundred ways to use cutting-edge technology in order to sell useless farkles to rich people. Since he was Islamic none of it was porn but as soon as that shit hit Europe? Porn.

Frankly we'd be a lot further along if you could fuck a blockchain.
