Yep, isn't it hot?

We don't know them as total strangers I mean we talk to them and stuff they aren't completly strangers unless you're like on of the newbies. So far I haven't met anyone like totally crazy-ish.
Right, right, you should completely trust your feelings when making judgments about people across the world whom you've never met. Because, you know, predators are just so inept about hiding who they truly are.

EDIT: And yes, I realize that some of you may know others face-to-face, but that's not the case for 90% of internet friendships.

I'm meeting Jessica tomorrow and eventually I'm gonna meet Shaun.

Then again, I'm 18 so I don't really have to worry about pedophiles then.

Doubtful.

I wouldn't worry about it.

As a performer I meet complete strangers after every show. And some of them are quite...scary. But it doesn't make a me a recluse.

I dont mind where you're from, if you're not batshit crazy, I'd love to meet ya.

Yea, exactly what he said ><

No, they ARE complete strangers. Pedophiles don't SOUND any different on the internet than nice people. They don't get a special pretty font or a PEDOPHILE ON THE LOOSE avatar. You can't tell the two apart which is exactly why meeting someone you don't know at such a vulnerable age is a bad idea.

And well yea for those of you showoffs who are adults then thats a different matter.

Yeah, it's not like paedos are gonna act crazy. I mean, I could be a paedophile... just for the record, I'm not, but I've only got my typed word. Adri has a bit of proof I'm not a paedo, because she's heard my voice, but I could be a paedo who can do teenage voices... but I'm not.

It's just that, if I was a pedo I wouldn't go to a site with people that read and write.

...why not? If I were a paedo, I'd go to every forum or chatroom for youths I could find, so I had a better chance of getting some idiot to come to me.

But this site is pretty small and you're not dealing with teens with low self-esteem. And when people think reading it screams 'nerd' not 'hot girls'. Unless perverts like nerds, I wouldn't know . YWO also isn't a site where you can post lots of pictures (obviously we can but it isn't myspace or facebook).

BTW is that really how you spell pedo? Random...
