There are lots of things the Bible doesn't specifically address. Computers being one of them.

There is scripture that tells us to flee from lust, and that tells us to love one another. Pornography has only one purpose primarily and that it to excite sexually. It also supports an industry that exploits women (and men) which further leads to things like prostitution, drug addiction. suicide etc.

If anyone wants to argue that it is harmless and non-addictive, then the question needs to be asked why the pornography industry takes in more money a year than all professional sports combined?

I don't need a specific verse that says to me, "Don't watch view Porn on the computer". Well beyond any law I might try to follow I know my Father well enough and am indwelt by His Spirit to know that there is no profit in the activity, and it shows no love to others that is in keeping with the love of God.
Dogmatism is the comfortable intellectual framework of self-righteousness. Self-righteousness is more decadent than the worst sexual sin. ~ Dan Allender

let's see

Examples from OT: Joseph...fleeing from sexual immorality with pharoah's wife
NT: "Flee from sexual immorality"
Christ's words: looking lustfully equals adultery...plenty more
"And we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Jesus Christ"

Technology, as destructive as it can be to relationships, does not magically convert people into other forms for use and consumption. God made humankind in His image, and that image is very powerful, meaningful, and valuable. Misuse of that image is is equally bad.

As someone who has failed in this issue severely (lust, not porn), I like to refer to lust as "mental rape", which I believe is an adequate description, and an appropriate warning if you find yourself considering it.
