hmmmm...

I've never seen any posts by this Maryland 1971 character, but thank you for the information.

There are some little problems, though. Firstly, pedophilia is sexual attraction to children ages 13 and under, and it's possible to be a pedophile without actually sexually molesting children. However, you repeatedly refer to people listed on your site as "wannabe pedos."

I noticed one profile on your site for a 23-year-old guy who intended to have sex with a 15-year-old girl. Granted, there is a pretty huge age disparity between the two, and I would definitely say that an adult man who specifically seeks out high school girls or boys isn't completely normal. However, a 15-year-old is not a child, and is both sexually aware and, at least sometimes, capable of making a rational decision whether to have sex or not. Had the man actually had sex with the girl and been caught doing it, his crime would be statutory rape, not rape of a child.

It's not politically correct for me to say this, but I'll say it anyway. I think that statutory rape is one of the stupidest legal concepts around today. Again, I'm not advocating sex with high school boys, but I think that if a 23-year-old and a 15-year-old have sex, as long as it's completely consensual and not coercive, then I see nothing wrong with it, morally speaking. The reason why a 23-year-old and a 15-year-old having a relationship is frowned upon is because it is illegal. It's sort of like how drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes are considered acceptable despite both being extremely harmful to one's health, whereas smoking pot, which is both non-addictive and less harmful to your health, is considered "wrong."

I believe that...

... the methods you use is a form of entrapment.

Your methods are suspect.

Statutory Rape and Pot

Not that I agree with the practices of that website, but as someone who has had a run in with a pedophile, statutory rape laws are necessary for the greater good. They serve a very good purpose and I am personally thankful that they exist. And unless a certain PhD I know who specializes in drugs and their effect on human behavior is wrong, smoking pot is just as addictive and just as harmful to your health as alcohol and tobacco

I've read about that site...

... in an article in the Toronto Star.

Basically, the people who work with the site devise ways to trap potential pedophiles in places like chat rooms. Then, an international network starts up, doing everything possible to ruin that person's life. There is no chance for the person to reply to the charges or defend himself. It's the postmodern lynch mob.

Please understand that this message is not a defense of pedophiles, or even potential pedophiles. People who try to lure minors into having sex over the Internet are disgusting. Yet, I still have problems with the methodology of this website. It's not flawless, and the accused's lives pretty much get ruined. Lynch-mob justice is always far from flawless...

Just my thoughts,

Daniel
