Once upon a time…
…There was a man named Fred, who was sexually attracted to iguanas.
Fred came online, and promptly joined a chat room for iguana lovers. He soon became mortified, to discover that many of his buddies were coming up missing, as time went by.
One day, out of the blue, Fred stumbled across a chatter named “Iguana13”, and he struck up a conversation.
Fred was shocked to learn, that “Iguana13”, was a thirteen year old iguana, that had learned to think deeply, read and type…and he/she was very horny [and clad in edible, skin tight, hot pink leather].
Fred just knew, there was something not right here…after all, reptiles only “talk” in the bible and other fantasy novels [ie: dragons]…not on the internet!
After some time, one of Fred’s old buddies resurfaced, under a different name…and in a private message, he warned Fred about “Iguana13”.
As it were, many inhabitants of this chat room were being terrorized by “Iguana13”, and his/her buddies. Because Fred’s friends wanted to believe in the fantasy of a “hot n horny iguana looking for them online”, and disregard common sense and all the dangers…they foolishly gave out their identity, in hopes of meeting some place.
Soon after, their names, general descriptions, phone numbers, addresses, and pictures of their faces, started showing up on a website…complete with transcripts of their private conversations, with “Iguana13”.
“Iguana13”, and his/her buddies, were calling their phone numbers endlessly, leaving threatening messages…They were posting fliers in communities, calling local cops to “report” them, and even informing the employers of these guys [in hopes that they get fired, or further harassed at their place of work]…They were holding prisoner, and habitually tormenting, Fred’s friends.
Fred got mad…This was not right!
Regardless of what anyone thought about sexual proclivities towards iguanas, people like “Iguana13” should never be allowed to have anything to do with policing it.
“Iguana13”, and his/her buddies, were fanatics…and not only that, they were people who held a sinister relishing, for the cruel tormenting of other humans…They were sociopaths, fulfilling a personal fetish…Iguana Lovers, were only a convenient means to an end…People “nobody” cared about, so they were easy targets with little, to no, consequences.
Fred decided to fight back, by finding out as much information about this group of online terrorists…including, what chat rooms they frequented, when hunting for new victims.
Fred wrote an expose, and put it on a website…he then started hanging out in chat rooms, where “Iguana13”, and his/her buddies, were known to hunt and entrap.
Whenever Fred arrived, he would private message everyone in the room, with a very brief message…
“Hello. Please be aware, a group of online terrorists are known to frequent this room, and hunt for victims by entrapment. Primary mode of entrapment, includes pretending to be a “hot n horny iguana”, who is willing to have sex with you. Please educate yourself further here: http://www.FredsExposeSiteHere.com [Not a Real Site]”
Fred would also private message this same thing, to everyone who entered the room, during his time there.
Fred was on a mission, to throw a monkey wrench into what those online terrorists were doing, and how they were destroying people’s lives…So, he started dedicating a few hours a day, to doing just that…and as more people became aware, they joined in…until there were enough volunteers, to keep all the rooms inhabited by at least one person, 24 hours a day.
There was no longer any chance, that people would walk onto the scene, and remain completely naive about what was going on, in those chat rooms. People who were about to make a terrible mistake, were diverted, educated [and perhaps shown a better way, to deal with their iguana loving]…and just as importantly, the life blood of those online terrorists has been dried up [with the exception of those, who are just to stubborn to help].
While Fred, and his friends, could not stop every single Iguana Lover from “winning the Darwin Award”…their efforts made a devastating impact, upon what the hateful online terrorists were doing…and in the face of this crippling response, most of these online terrorists became frustrated and gave up…It was no longer easy, and they were being deprived of the “rewards”, which they so relished.
…and the online terrorists, lived sadly ever after…
While there may be a few out there who miss the point entirely [“Uh Oh!…Better inform Wikisposure, I’m writing about bestiality, yet again!”]…the perceptive mind will quickly understand, what I have just suggested.
I’d like to put forward this thought, for further discussion.
Perverted Justice members [the more rabidly, unbalanced sociopaths], enjoy habitually doing just exactly what “Iguana13” does…and they entrap a lot of naive, internet newbies…to have as their own, living play things, to torment.
Irregardless of what we may think, about the intelligence level of going into online chat rooms, to find illegal sexual companions…I think there are at least two things we should be thinking about…
First, it is this very type of activity, which keeps the sociopath terrorists going…Removing the rewards, would deal a very critical blow, at the core of Perverted Justice…If there is no “pay off”, which those kinds of personalities value [or are looking for], then how long will most of them remain actively employing their current tactics?
…and if they start leaving, then how long will Perverted Justice continue to thrive?
Second, we likely do lose a lot of good people, to what Perverted Justice is doing…and this is primarily do to naivety, on the part of those good people.
They may not be of much use, initially…but once they come out of the fog, educate themselves and find their own footing…many such people can become important voices.
My own, “first few steps along the journey”, were not in places, that most people would put forward as “the most respectable”…I found various newsgroups, in the very beginning…At least one person from Free Spirits, was actively engaging in a sort of “outreach program”, and advertising BoyChat, in some of those newsgroups…I followed the link…and the rest, is a long bit of history.
While I rarely engaged in anything, that could be seen as “legally questionable” [unless you are going by a very broad definition], or even illegal in some jurisdictions…I can tell you, the opportunity to walk straight into trouble, did present itself in front of me, a number of times during those early days…and it was incredibly tempting.
Not to give myself accolades…but, some people do consider me to be a worthwhile presence, today…and I might not be here, if I’d have given a credit card number and accepted any special delivery from the wrong person…or, gone looking for sex with a young looking teen.
Those are not, inherently, the behaviors of bad people…but, to many unwary people, are falling into these kinds of traps…I think, it is hurting us, in the long run, that we set by and do nothing to combat it.
Has anything like this already been tried [the live chat room presence], by another group?…maybe Corrupted Justice?
Of course, the level of dedication would need to be serious…on the same level as a LifeLine volunteer, at least…Otherwise, we would not be as effective.
We’d need to know where Perverted Justice sociopaths hunt and entrap…are there favorite, or preferred rooms?…are these consistently existing rooms, or do they change [like IRC]?
I will admit some ignorance here…as I’ve only read/heard, that they hang out in places like, for instance, Yahoo! chat rooms for teens…I’m not sure what, exact, rooms these are, but I presume some of them have to be well established.
Of course, spending hours of your time in a chat room, just to post these kinds of warnings, is hard on anyone…and it disrupts so much of the rest of your life…but, if there were enough people, to where only an hour, or half hour, a day were required from each person…It would not be so bad.
Anyone hostile towards you, might accuse you of spamming, and try to get you banned.
I don’t know how practical this idea is, but I thought I’d throw it out there for consideration, at the very least.
If we want to start making a critical impact upon Perverted Justice, and their ilk…then we need to start hitting them, where it honestly hurts.
