If you don't believe the government is paying police officers to cruse the net, posing as teenagers, in an attempt to entrap adults, then you have not been reading the news.
They can be very convincing. Even the Police Chief, for the Virginia Commonwealth University, a man who you would have thought was both in tune with the younger generation and with the police efforts to entrap people got stung this week. __________________________________________________________________________________________

Chief Willie B. Fuller has been arrested in an online sting operation
in Chesterfield County and charged with soliciting sex from a
14-year-old girl, police said today.
Police said Fuller, 50, was arrested last night at his home in the
9000 block of Meadowfield Court in Henrico County. He was charged with
two counts of using a computer to solicit sex from a minor and two
counts of attempted indecent liberties with a minor.
His arrest resulted from a sting operation that involved undercover
detectives going to online chatrooms or other Internet sites popular
with juveniles. The detectives then create fictitious posts and pose as
Although police declined to provide more specific information in
this case, meetings are usually arranged between the detectives and the
people with whom they communicate. Chesterfield Police Maj. Dan Kelly said Fuller clearly believed he was communicating with a 14-year-old girl.
"I’m not sure which [Internet] medium the detective was using at
the time it occurred," Kelly said. "But it was part of our ongoing
online efforts in these areas. When time permits, our detectives
trained in this area will utilize their time and go online."
If the police chief can't spot a sting then you can't either. So only communicate in the public way, by posting replies to the teens questions.
DO not use the PM, or email them privately. NEVER agree to meet anyone who is under age, even if they live near by and just want your help to buy a thong. Taking a thong to a meeting with an under age person looks very incriminating to people who associate thongs with sex.
We have had past incidents on this board where teen thongers turned out to be cops. When we called their bluff they vanished. Don't get suckered in. They are really out to entrap people.
