Everyone,

We usually deal with these situations behind the scenes, but this is a case where we feel you need to be warned. There is an Internet troll who has been caught here in the past and recently tried to lure users off-site for cybersex. We have specific information on his activities under these screen names:

CharlotteJock8
chaspolojock
Good Fellow
fellow
polofellow
Theophilus
collegejock

Other aliases used by this person are:

adana
charlottejock
chasfellowjock
fellowjock
goodfella
jockfellow
nsnssn

All of these accounts have been permanently banned and the matter has been referred to our Board of Directors for further action. Please watch out for any user names which seem similar to these. If you see something that strikes you as suspicious please report it to a moderator immediately so we can deal with the situation.

Please bear in mind also that any attempt to hook up with you or take you off-site in a sexual context can never be meant with your own interests and healing at heart. Anyone who does this to you is simply trying to exploit, deceive and manipulate you all over again, and the impact on a struggling survivor can be very serious. This is one of the main reasons why we urge you to refrain from giving or asking for off-site contact details until you have been here at least three months and are getting to know and trust people.

Do be careful, as always when you are online, but at the same time please don't take this advisory as cause for alarm. These cases are few and far between and the ModTeam is experienced in dealing with them. If you have any questions please let us know.

Larry, aka roadrunner
ModTeam Coordinator

I'll shake, stir, crush, and blend the b@stard.

For some reason, I don't doubt that! \:D \:\)

I'm all for it! And I think Stretch could teach the guys over on those "other sites" a thing or two too! (Maybe I should refer to them as "the-sites-which-must-not-be-name", but I think that gives them too much credibility. Don't have any trouble saying Voldemort though. LOL)

The funny part is the guy was in chat with me and a few others just a few nights ago! He seemed totally normal. Said he was right around my age too. Why all of a sudden do I feel dirty?

That's a Harry Potter thing, they are so scared of Voldemort he is referred to as "he-who-must-not-be-named". Sorry - I've been around too many 11-12 year olds. LOL

I have spent much time around kids also, but I'm very ignorant to movies. Sorry, I don't get to see much television.

All the kids I've been teaching the last couple of years have been reading the books - all seven of them - so I read them too. Trying to be that informed teacher that connects with the students... They weren't too bad either...

Your post made me bust out laughing! In a previous life I had a boss who was quite simply, a bitch. Other people who had her for a boss agreed but when we were in mixed company I would refer to her as Lady Voldemort!

Try not to blame or fault yourself for talking to a character like this. Really, if you were talking to him there is no way you would know just from seeing him in chat. We caught him and banned him quite quickly, but we watch for such things and it's one of the many things that are going on behind the scenes to keep everyone here safe.

We just thought this time we need to make an announcement because he was here in the past. I told him then that if he returned we would hand the case over to the BoD with recommendations to file official complaints, and I warned him not to test our resolve. He decided to go for it anyway, so now we are following through.

Much love,
Larry

This disgusts me, but I doubt it's uncommon in online communities like this.

The advantage we have in SIA is that it is face to face. Any attempts at "13th Stepping" become obvious quickly and we can throw these predators out.

I thank the mod team that they are on the job with this.

Thank you!

Actually, the life expectancy for a predator here is very short and we don't often get them - but that is because we are vigilant all the time. On this occasion credit for the catch goes to Andy/Former Texan and Eddie/EGL, with John/Walkingsouth dealing with a lot of the follow-up and checking that had to be done. I chirped encouragements and finished the donuts. \:D

Good job guys! Seems like most of the scary stuff happens in chat. Knowing you guys are on the case with stuff like this makes me feel better about it though.

I have the strangest feeling that if this person tries to create another identity here, the name he chooses will likely give him away rather quickly. I mean, I'm detecting a subtle pattern...
