Site Outages

It would appear that my hosting company is experiencing some issues with one of their database servers, affecting access to the forums.

They're working on the problem and I hope they're resolved at this point.

If you try to get there and cannot gain access, be assured I'm aware of it and I'm in contact with them.

Sorry for any inconveniences.

Predators use gaming consoles to 'get foot in the door'

By Wendy Koch, USA TODAY

Sexual predators are using gaming consoles such as the Wii, PlayStation and Xbox to meet children online.

"Child predators are migrating from traditional methods to alternate media," says Detective Lt. Thomas Kish of the Michigan State Police. "They are going to places where children are." Predators view games that allow kids to access the Internet and text message other players as a "foot in the door," he says.

Parents may not realize that gaming consoles have become Internet devices or that savvy kids can bypass parental controls, says Marc Rogers, director of Purdue University's Cyber Forensics Lab.

Police who have been doing stings in Internet chat rooms for years now are going undercover to catch predators playing interactive games, ranging from Grand Theft Auto to old-fashioned chess and checkers. They're making arrests.
