Just for reference...

The British government has launched a new website to provide information about chatroom safety to children, called thinkUknow

A new offence of "internet grooming" is just going onto the legal books, as well.

Are there any groomers on this message board? smile

Thanks for the link PM.

But there's an error in it. It has two 'http://'s.

Here's the correct one: http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/home.htm

* Raccoon grooms ParaBrat, at risk to his personal health and wellness.
* Raccoon is now known as CrispyCritter

Isn't this "grooming" the same thing people do every day in real life in hopes of gaining acceptance and trust? Wouldn't it be more fun to use our tongues?

Mentality was making a joke based on something i said.

As i've explained before, please stop posting in all CAPS, it is considered rude and shouting.
