In the end, I think this is a positive for us anyways. We no longer are bound by THEM as to what we can do with OUR site.

Jesus Christ, TIF, read that! Read it again. One more time. And one last time for good measure.

 

Admins here should think like that.

Agreed. Tripsis should bang a 5 year old for good measure.

If it were up to me, SteveW would be out on his ass tomorrow heading to the unemployment line. This is what Jagex has come to? Publicly shaming people in stickied threads on their forums? I have a hard time explaining to people at my job that their credit card was declined, what kind of a thuggish [wagon] does SteveW have to be to condemn an entire fansite to endless harassment for the sake of making some kind of [cabbage] statement about protecting the children, a disproportionate response to an imaginary threat.

 

^ this. Nothing more need be said.

 

Not Mod SteveW!!!!!!

The site admin, based off his letter of resignation, came off as a pervert, for lack of a better term, and I can see why Jagex wants to distance themselves from that. Especially considering a large portion of the player base is under age.

 

^This exactly. He is still a pedophile for distributing those in the first place. He said teenage pictures, so I'm going to just assume they were 13 at the time. Also he seemed to know a lot about child porn in adult book stores.

 

Not that RuneVillage loses anything; they were always inferior to Tip.it anyway.

 

Pedophilia, also spelled paedophilia , psychosexual disorder in which an adult has sexual fantasies about or engages in sexual acts with a prepubescent child of the same or the opposite sex. Source

 

Yeah. K.

See this

 

"As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia (or paedophilia) is defined as a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 or older) typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally age 13 years or younger, though onset of puberty may vary)."

 

and

 

"In law enforcement circles, the term "pedophile" is sometimes used in a broad manner to encompass a person who commits one or more sexually-based crimes that relate to legally underage victims."

 

Take your failed trolling back to /b/ where you belong.

If you use this "legal" definition, then someone is a pedophile if and only if they commit a crime. The flaws in this are obvious.

 

The actual technical definition of "pedophilia" would be more of 'sexual attraction towards children'. Biologically speaking, a child is an individual who hasn't yet attained the ability to reproduce, i.e. pre-prubescent. If we use this biological definition, which is really much better than the arbitary social division which varies considerably between different countries and cultures, then a pedophile is someone who is sexually attracted to pre-pubescent individuals. Further, the legal age of consent in some countries is 12, therefore sexual attraction towards teenagers (13-19) isn't legally pedophilia everywhere. If the definition is universally applicable everywhere then it really shouldn't be used as the technical definition.

 

Age of consent in Montana is 16. Age of consent in California is 18. By legal definition, if a 40 year old has sex with a 16 year old in Cali he/she is a pedophile; same thing happens in Montana he/she isn't a pedophile. That really doesn't work.

You call me a troll, then go on to cite Wikipedia? Well played son, well played. If you were at least half serious, you would've instead cited the DSM-IV. The FBI definition regards 13 or under, and yet, you are still calling him a pedophile. I'm curious as to where:-

a) You've found details pertaining to the age of the 'victims' in question (I dont like the word victim, but we'll roll with it)

b) Linked distribution with sexual interest in children.

c) Found information which proves he was diagnosed a pedophile (as is the standard) by a psychiatrist

 

Technically being labeled a pedophile is a psychiatric diagnosis that can be made

only by qualified psychologists or psychiatrists. For many, therefore, the word is a diagnostic term, not a legal one.

 

And as a matter of semantics, 13 year olds are actually considered to be adolescents, not children. So the wiki article is slightly off-base.

 

Adolescence is considered to be the period between ages 13 and 19. The adolescent experiences not only physical growth and change, but also emotional, psychological, social, and mental change and growth.

The owner got slandered but they are free of Jagex's influence on their site.

 

Yeah, they totally slandered him with their facts, objective government records, logic, openess, and local newspaper stories...

I'm like a hot mess, but without the alcohol.

Hiker is still labelled sex offender for that?!?

I know people whom did far worse things (but i'm not going into detail about that) and they're not even labelled sex offender. (Don't get me wrong you single minded freaks! :P i'm not approving any of it)

 

One could say once a thief always a thief but is one a thief if he stole once? Is one a sailor if he sailed once? Is one a pilot if he flew once? You guys and gals believe what you want, but in my eyes this whole deal is blown way out of proportions!

 

I won't deny the fact that for instance a thief who stole once and got caught yet doesn't realises it's in his own advantage, who will never steal again because he learned his lesson sooner than later still has the urge to steal, the fact that he no longer commits the act is what makes him stronger.

But then again a person like that could not be trusted, that is true but it's not necessary to trust that person.

It's like a dog which out of nowhere severly attacked someone, in our sociaty we would put the dog down while we could just muzzle it and try to make the dog see that it made a mistake, hell it's only a dog!

Hell we're only people we all make mistakes and you wouldn't wish for yourself that you had to pay for it the rest of your life if you did something (very) stupid, so you can't go out and be the hypocrite wishing this one someone else. (I'm looking at the people behind Jagex)

 

All i can say is that i'm not proud of Jagex and even less proud of Hiker, damn you :(

It's all a shame though :(

 

Ah well Svs signing off.

I think there is a lot of overprotection when it comes to child sex abuse, yes. The chances of him relapsing due to his work on RuneVillage, and its status as a gold status fansite weren't significantly high. However, before you criticise Jagex for making the same decision as any other company would in their position, I would challenge you to have an argument with the supporters of Megan's Law and remind them of the fact (I repeat, FACT) that that law has had no demonstrable effect on preventing child sex abuse, or even the type of abuse committed.

 

I guarentee you won't get much logic in the inevitable debate, but what you would get is a lot of accusations that you're "cozying up" to paedophiles.

 

Now you understand Jagex's point of view here.

I have an irl friend who is a sex offender because he was 18 with a 16 year old girlfriend and her parents hated him. With that in mind I think that this is [cabbage], unless this person is a real predator.

 

I'm glad the age of consent is 16 in Canada. :thumbsup:

Me too - until recently it was 14 (at least in Ontario).

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Please tell me, if someone steals something, what are they? If someone's sailed for the first time, what are they? And what someones is if they've piloted a plane for the first time. Trainee thief? Trainee Sailor? Trainee pilot?

 

 

Necrobump aside, please, for the love of god, tell me you didn't just compare sex offences to theft Svs.

 

Apparently they're similar!
