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.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!
