It is worth noting that 47 U.S.C. 230 provides _limited_ protections, only.
Broad protection, but limited.  It says that a provider shall not 'be 
treated as author' for material provided by someone else.

This of little-to-no help with regard to kiddie porn, since distribution, 
and even 'mere' possession,  are crimes -- independant of authorship.
