Very interesting.<quoted text>I am a social worker whose training includes spotting potential victims of predators and other sex offenders. Identifying the offenders themselves is more of a challenge. After reading some of the posts on this thread I have insufficient evidence to come to any conclusions. However, there are definitely red flags that would indicate some of these posters are indeed pedophiles.
Approximately one in twenty adults and teenagers sexually molest children in this country. The best defense is to get aggressive and take action when dubious behavior is spotted. I commend you for your posts and for not being afraid to get involved by reporting those you suspect are offenders. Though not 100% conclusive, I believe that you are onto something that constitutes a red flag.
Ok, let's see how your social worker training can help here.
I've been accused by a poster on here of being a pedophile. The poster that you give encouragement to agrees with that poster.
Now, in your wisdom and training, look back through my posts and see if you agree with those two insufficiently-trained-to-spot -pedophiles laymen.
(Even you said that the poster was "onto something that constitutes a red flag"). I was one of the posters that she was commenting about to another poster.
Of course you won't find ANY evidence. But what about "red flags"? What about "dubious behavior"? I doubt that you will. I KNOW YOU WILL NOT. But if you do, please point each and every one of them out and give your professional reasoning.
And if you cannot find any evidence or "red flags" or "dubious behavior," I expect you to write a post condemning those who would accuse others of something that is NOT TRUE.
Please use the very same energy and forthrightness that you used to write that post commending others for accusing others of something that is a BLATANT LIE.
Take your time, I've got 3,302 prior posts for you to browse through. I've got even more testimonials accrued from a lifetime of good character to slay such accusations.
TRUTH stands above LIES every day of the week!
And, your training should alert you that those who constantly accuse all who don't agree with them of being a pedophile are probably pedophiles themselves.
I await your response.
