I haven’t done a Blacklist entry in a long time. They were mostly political. Ever since I’ve been focused on the “crime blogging” I’ve been shying away from politics. However, Steve Huff did an entry today about a pedophiles’ webring over at Xanga. Let me give you a taste of what Steve had to say…
I’ve been debating even writing this blog entry because there are two sides to the idea of linking anything to do with these blogs, none of them all that obvious as to what their owners are at first. I decided that to link individual blogs wouldn’t be a good idea, but I was so disturbed by the following that I felt I had to at least make the reader aware — particularly if you are a parent to a child who might be old enough to show an interest in blogging. Until yesterday I had no idea such a thing could even exist — pedophile blogrings.
Steve goes on to give a vivid description of some of the members’ blogs. Rather than rehash that here I suggest you read his entry. What sickens me most about this is that Xanga, for the most part, is used by kids and teens. And while Steve did a great entry about this cancer that exists on the internet I’m going to try to do him one better. The Blacklist isn’t about talk. It’s about action. I am going to contact Xanga to see if they are aware of these blogrings and if they’re man enough to do anything about it.
I’ll let you know if I get any response. You can contact Xanga about abuse here.
