    High on the Most Wanted List is "GropeyBambi" (although known to use many aliases)
    an immoral internet user who started with "Granny Grooming" but then progressed
    to more sinister cyber crime. A known sociopath this man is dangerous and
    MUST NOT BE APPROACHED.

    parked outside school gates dispensing candy.

    Err, no. Not at all appropriate. Can't subscribe to that commentary whatsoever. Unfair and just horrid.

    Enjoy your posts usually 🙂

    That's right, boys and girls. They could be among us, preying on your innermost data.

    The Kindred Spirit visits the web forum circuit, observing his prey, learning
    their moves so he can strike, charming smile in hand. First there is a nod,
    then a warm embrace, it follows some phone calls, and then... ZAP! He's got
    them.

    Correct.

    Let's not forget that the girl scout dressed as a bishop is no longer a good
