    We can agree to disagree. I did not post the kid's picture, user name, etc. I didn't even post a direct link to the other thread. My intention was to NOT call attention to HIM, per se, but to the problem with this system.

    I also did not publicly name the contest starter - because while I find his actions creepy, his name shouldn't be automatically linked/labeled as some kind of child molester, when a) he and this kid could both be over 18 b) he might be clueless/just have poor judgment.

    Wrong children today are exposed to violence, sexual conduct, through TV, Magzines, Radio, pop songs, clothing lines - far more than they ever were 20 years ago. There is being over sensitive and there is being open to what is happening - the loss of innocence of children is happening at a disturbing rate and if that is how you think, then damn!!!

    I think the invite system has a lot of unintended consequences. How many people still think that it's better than a pre-order system? Not many, I'll bet.

    Poor judgment all around. I'm not your mom and it isn't my job to police you. It is, however, my prerogative as a forum member to report things I find sketchy and/or offensive. Period.

    I think if you were cautious - you wouldn't have sent any picture to any person asking for "Hot" photos to get an invitation - this shows naivety on your part. The internet is full oe people pretending to be something other than they are and its things like this that need to stop. I understand you didn't mean to hurt anyone and you haven't - the fact is the person who started this by askingf or such material is in the spotlight not you.

    He has everything he needs to find you - your photograph - there is only one person that looks like you in the world and guess who that is... YOU!

    +1 and I always saying that "Internet privacy is a delusion" so even he personally didn't give any details it doesn't mean this details can't be find/stolen.
    And also its not about that person as the picture and all details can be used by somebody else, a random freak from net
