Any programmer who writes a program that pretends to be a 14-year-old girl is undoubtedly even creepier than the perverts who chat with it.

For kicks I went to one of those Goth chat places, it was called 'Mortuary Chat' but I had to leave cause the place was totally dead...

They always say that everyone's good at something...

I just have to find the right kind of place that appreciates nude juggling of a midget, a hand grenade, and a porcupine while playing the kazoo and riding a unicycle backwards without a seat

At 14 was old enough to drive a scooter and put my life on jeopardy on the roads. If you can handle that then why not be able to handle deciding who you sleep with? How is it taking advantage of someone if they enjoy it. Of course rapping a minor is a no no but then again rape is wrong either way so thats not the point here.

So the point where someone is old enough to make a choice like that is when they can drive a scooter on the road (scooter? what country are you from?) So if the government decides 10 year olds can drive a scooter now statutory rape begins with 9 year olds?

Hello Everyone. I hope we are having a good day. Please give me your social network profile and mobile number so that we may continue the conversation.

Please don't leave. The cake is not a lie.

That screams "entrapment" to me, and you can be sure that any lawyer would have a field day with that.

Not to mention they're technically not having a conversation with a human being anyway, so what law are they really breaking?

And why 14? While not an adult, that's hardly a child either. Most females throughout history were married off and starting families by that point, and even throughout the world today 16+/- is still common. I was having sex at 14.

But you weren't having sex with older people at 14. People taking advantage of you. From what I know, though, most law enforcement will go 12 or 13, complaining that at 14 they'd have to arrest almost everyone and that people like you aren't fully convinced that a 45 year old man trying to pick up a 14 year old for sex on the internet is taking advantage of him/her.

Right or wrong, part of the reason they are insistent is because the predators doing things like this aren't often the aggressor. They mostly do baiting - trying to trick the minor into being the aggressor. Trying to make it seem it's the minor's idea so that the minor is comfortable with it. And, since they're opportunistic, if a minor isn't responding they simply move on and try trolling somewhere else.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

I think soon the most interesting conversations I have on the internet will be with bots.

I love that we have chatbots good enough that they think they can use them for this. Actually doing it? Soooo many issues with it. It uses bad spelling = probably a kid? People in chatrooms aren't known for their fine english skills. Even worse:

"For example, if the suspect does not appear to be enticed into having a conversation, the software can appear offended or get more insistent.

And it will respond to more aggressive advances - like requests for personal information - by trying to find out more about the suspect. This can include details such as their social network profile and mobile number, information which can then be used by police to start an investigation."

Hold the phone! Who is soliciting who here? The guy tried to leave the chat but you insisted he stay? Your asking him for HIS personal info? Whoever this guy is, nothing he is doing with this chatbot is illegal.

I want them to catch the creeps, but this ain't it.
