idiotic judges. Examples are just that, examples to be used as guidance they are not an exhaustive list. Using their logic, if I invent a new way to kill someone, it wont be illegal.

The case began in February 2006, when a Plymouth County Deputy Sheriff Melissa Marino set up an Internet profile, described herself as 13 years old and invited people to contact her.
The then-25-year-old Zubiel began having online conversations with Marino by instant message. He eventually told her he'd like to teach her how to perform oral sex and was arrested at a Marshfield apartment complex where he had arranged to meet her, according to court papers. Police said Zubiel admitted "the thought was there for him to have sex with this minor."
While I don't like this type of behavior, the guy, in fact. never sent an e-mail to a 13 year old. In my view, what he thought was irrelevant. People are responsible for whaqt they actually do, not what they think. Even if the law is changed, a person whould have to actually contact a minor by e-mail to be found guilty, not some female cop engaging in entrapment.

It won't be illegal unless you use your new method :-)
