Many people have no clue what chan sites are. Well, “chan” by definition is nothing more than internet speak. However, there are certain sites that use the term in their names and are preceded by numbers such as 4, 7, and 12. i.e. 4chan, 7chan, and 12chan. The short of it is, these sites are made up primarily of a bunch of horny losers seeking their release with children and young teens, and of kids who have no life offline and are easily manipulable by online predators.

An official Law Enforcement notice; Jan 31 2007:
I don't know. You tell me. A little more credibility?

Bad form, IMO...but his/her right none the less.

Hmmmmm.... I wonder how many raids on pedophile computers also turned up Windows, anti-virus software, firewalls, other microsoft compnents, and what about the hardware?? I bet every one of those computers had a keyboard as well. So going by the solid investigating done here Anon can go start a thread about how pedophiles have been found to use "Windows" and according to some random unsourced reports, anyone that owns "Windows" falls into the category of pedophiles.
The logos were found during raids on computers and other items related to pedophile investigations

Hey, thanks for the heads up.
I will be sure to keep a look out for anyone using these symbols, and I will be sure to jump-to-conclusions about their sexual conduct.

"Hey that man is wearing a ring that looks similar to what I saw on ATS.. Good thing I saw that thread,

Now my point is that fear has now been created towards these symbols and every time anyone who has seen the OP's info, sees these symbols, (no matter under any context) will only see it as a pedophiliac symbol. Now u can blame it on the pedos, you can blame it on the police, you can blame it on the OP but I would blame it on ignorance.

I would not care as much but I hate to see people who lie on purpose. It is one thing if a thread like this pops up because someone is uninformed, that happens. Since I know the OP is a willfull liar, I just find it that much more interesting somehow.

You start threads just to spread lies and this one is just plain sick. What this does is provide everyone with a fake target and a fake enemy to be distrracted by which only gives real criminals more of a chance to do what they do.

Being aware of your childs actions and the people the have in their lives is more important. Watching your children for changes in behaviour is probobly the most important thing to do. Stay involved in your childs life and know where they are and who they are with. Too many people just tune out of their kids lives and their children get tempted and lured into situations that only later you find out about and try to deal with after the fact. This can be anything from drugs to sex to child predators.
Seriously i know people have but the best intentions when trying to get the word out and find a way to stop pedophiles. I am definetly NOT trying to crush anyones enthusiasm for that. But it has to be done correctly and in the proper way with the proper authorities lest we inadvertantly harm someone who is innocent and not deserving of justice. I wouldnt want the blood of an inocent man on my hands because i did the wrong thing thinking it was for the right reasons.

Proper parenting involving being aware of her activities as she grows, meeting her friends and friends parents, and giving her the tools and confidence she needs to deal with situations, and a healthy dose of suspicion is better than trying to sneak a peak at everyone's jewelry.

We should teach children early on about the facts of life. They will discover on their own anyways. Think about it. When you were in 5th or 6th grade......you knew about sex before you taught anything. C'mon really.

the ` social dynamic ` of peadophiles / peadiophilia is totally underground , illegal and universally despised
post by eMachine
While I doubt most pedophiles would use any sort of visual identifiers, I suppose in the internet age there may be a small 'community' of those who would.

My sister and I are very close. We have had very long discussions about these things. I admire my sister very much, because instead of keeping up the identity of a "victim" she was able to learn from her experiences. Likewise, I have always done everything that I can for her in regards to lightening her mood. I have tried to help her to find humor in our experiences of life. I personally find that laughter really is the best medicine, and we are giving power to our attackers when we allow ourselves to mentally remain as victims.

A quick search from Family Watchdog is Free and does not require your email to use it www.familywatchdog.us... It shows registered offenders by zip code.

Yet another detrimental post! People like you are not much better than any other petty thieves. My 19 year old brother is on that list.
and you are advocating his death because you think that will save a child?

Sex offender treatment itself is not designed to undo the seriousness of the offense. It is designed to reduce the risk of the individual committing further offenses and monitor the offender for on-going potential risk factors for committing another sexual offense. Everything discussed in treatment is shared with the offender's probation officer.
