The screenshot is so funny. I LOLed at the "what ?" part.


I have to admit... the screenshot is fake. I made it.

It's similar to, although highly abridged, actual conversations that have been sent to us.

It didn't feel appropriate to post actual conversation transcripts between him and his victims, particularly his underage victims.

Clever scheme there, you had me fooled.

This is really unfortunate, and ANN isn't the only site or company to have this happen to them, as well as what the victims have to go through. The best thing to do that people will become complacent about from time to time is keeping yourself informed about these types of things and staying alert. When you're letting your guard down that's what's going to happen. Another thing is making sure that if you have a child make sure you're telling them and keeping them informed about these types of things. Have conversations with them on a regular basis so that they know that while the internet is a great and fun place to be, there are going to be things in the deep dark alleys of the internet just like this.

There is something particularly sick to me about a predator coming to a place like a Con to find prey, perhaps because I have always been a part of fen, perhaps because I know from too many others how the fen world gave them something to hold onto at hard points in their lives, but this sort of thing really brings up a rage within me. This targeting of cosplayers, especially younger ones, well it punches that button hard too.
Indeed, at least one of the notorious manosphere/PUA sites has written a "How to Get Laid at Anime Conventions" guide. So if these predators are present, they're not necessarily mere disorganized "lone wolves" randomly wandering into the convention scene.


Yeah I think I can guess which one too. its leader has been featured in the news a bit lately
