Pedophile admits to using Xbox Live to pick up children

6:14 PM on 01.28.2008 // Qais Fulton

When I saw this article and decided to post it I couldn't think of any kind of funny image or caption I could use in conjunction with the post as is de riguer at Destructoid.  There is no way to spin this to make it lighthearted or amusing without also revealing yourself to be a completely amoral sociopath worthy of swift removal from this planet.  The actions of this man are not only disgusting and reprehensible in and of themselves, but the effect they'll have on the gaming world, providing ammunition for pundits searching for a way to demonize games, only serves to compound the issue.

Youtube user, self professed pedophile, and worthless human being Myidisphat has freely, and gleefully, admitted to using Xbox Live as a hunting ground to find and befriend young boys.  Seeming to think himself a champion of a noble cause, Myidisphat attempts to defend his deplorable peccadilloes with worthless platitudes making him out to be a caring person seeking to establish an innocuous connections with children, in the process revealing himself to be a monster of epic proportion.

“Most of the time I’m with boys there is no sexual involvement,” YouTube user Myidisphat wrote following posting video in which he spells out “I ‘heart’ little boys” on Halo 3. “They think I’m cool as hell because I do crazy [expletive deleted] all the time. Of course they love to ruff play. I’m not saying there is sexual involvement, but I’m not saying there isn’t.”

There simply aren't enough words for me to express my complete and total disgust.  At the risk of sounding petty, in addition to the nearly irreparable damage this person has done to too many children, he is happily handing an expansive war chest of ammunition to anyone seeking to paint gaming as a negative force in the world.  There is no way to defend against accusations of human excrement using your service to exploit children other than to say the majority of users don't do this.  To the ears of a scared parent, this is hardly an argument in defense of gaming and could even be misconstrued (purposefully by some) as defense of this type of activity.

Still, the effects this will likely have on the gaming world pale in comparison to the horrific trauma inflicted on far, far too many children. With any luck this absolute monstrosity meets with a swift end, which would still be too light a consequence.

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.
