Talk about a two edged sword. If this article can lead some of the victims to us great but I have already seen an increase in non victims in chat. To the non victims I have a message. We are a bunch of guys trying to get our lives back together. We are not a bunch of freaks. If you can watch but not interfere OK but if you do anything to interfere with someones recovery then GET THE HELL OFF

Mike,

This used to happen on occasion years ago. Chat was the most dangerous place for encountering frauds, bullies and general assholes. To hear that there is a noticable increase of this is greatly disturbing. Everyone needs to report the suspected offender to a mod right away. There are technical remedies to identifying them for fraud..

Robbie,

Thank you for posting the link. Excellent article. I must admit I never thought one of my postings would have been included in an article about CSA. When I started to read the article and the first quote from the board I said what? This is me. It help me feel more liberated that I can speak of the abuse and the effects it has on me.

Robbie your words and advocacy is a great help to all. Thank you.

Mike13 you are so right if you anyone or thing does anything to interfere with someones recovery they should get out. Well said.

Hope this helps people understand what we go through on a day to day basis.

Keep going and stay well

Kevin

This explains last night's incident.

That aside though - that is an excellent article, well written, and well said. And it needs to be as widely dispersed as is possible...

I'm glad that more media outlets are turning their attention to the topic. As Mike said earlier, it is a doubled edged sword. I was shocked by the troll in chat last night. I can't imagine what kind of person thinks it's okay to troll this kind of website.

There are plenty of bad Youtube videos to troll. Leave us alone!
