I don't know what the **** is going on, but for the past two days I've been bombarded by ICQ messages from people claiming to be teenage girls in Germany. I'm 38 and have no interest in underage German girls and I'm quite sure nothing in my profile would lead anyone to think otherwise (It reads "If I don't already know you, I probably don't want to talk to you")

/me degenerates into a foaming-at-the-mouth rant about "those damn young whippersnappers" while waving his cane in the air

Unfortunately, if you shot every thirteen year old in Germany, the issue wouldn't go away, sine those '13 year old girls' are inevitably spammers (or even spammer software) aiming to get on your good side to spam you with various things.

Oddly, they actually seem to be legitimate teenagers. Once I tell them that I'm 38 and not particularly interested in chatting with them, they go away and don't message me again.

Probably undercover cops trolling for dirty old men trolling for teens.

IANAL, but isn't that entrapment? I thought the cops could hang out in chat rooms, and wait for someone to hit on them first?

Either way, IM spam should DIE!

IANALIAAHB (I Am Not A LAwyer I Am A Human Being) but I think if the 'teen' cop simply says 'she' wants to chat, and the 38 year old starts asking what underwear she's wearing, that wouldn't be entrapment.

At least that's what the judge said at my court appearance a while back...

btw - what underwear are you wearing ?

It's not entrapment as long as they allow the other person to just do what they would normally. E.g., a cop dressed as a prostitute is hanging out on the corner, a man rolls down the window so she goes up and says hi, he asks her price. Not entrapement. A cop dressed as a prostitute is hanging out on the corner, goes up to a man and says, "Looking for a good time?" Entrapement.

Also, German laws may differ on that subject.

The general definition of 'Entrapment' is when an officer of the government/cop/whatever somehow does something that entices a citizen to do something they would not have done had the officer/cop/whatever not been there.

So much like Peebs said.. standing there and answering questions is not entrapment. Walking up and saying, "looking for a good time?" is.

Well...maybe...but I still think the act of saying "Hi, I'm an underaged teen...wanna chat?" is still more than just passively sitting around. And if you want to take it a bit further, the fact that they might be actively initiating conversations like these seems bad to me - it treats everyone on the Internet like a potential criminal, waiting to be caught.

By the same token, I think it's reasonably alright if someone is just idling in a chat room, saying nothing that isn't in the flow of the active conversation. If someone then approaches them...go after them, and prosecute them to the full extent of the law. But don't go out *looking* for trouble, pissing off innocent bystanders in the process. You wouldn't bother me on my telephone this way, so don't do it to me on the nearest digital equivalent - IM.

But I am a scary old man on the internet [Big Grin]

So far no "German teens" have cropped up today. The total for the weekend was 11 different IDs. I had considered it might be someone (police or otherwise) trolling for pedophiles, but that would only make sense for two or three IDs.

I believe someone I know was messing with me, however, because a couple of them knew a few details that aren't in my ICQ profile.

OH MY GOD!!

It's not a joke.

I'm actually being pestered by a ton of 13 year old German girls.

Apparently there's some boy band named Tokio Hotel with a singer named Bill and my ICQ profile answers match things he's said in interviews.

But wait... that's not all

This is what they're mistaking me for!

More pictures (and reasons to laugh at me) can be found here and here

Steen, they probably are real Germans. I get loads of them on one of my ICQ numbers. I have no idea why, but there are a whole lot of german guys out there that want me to look at their penis. They even resort to pleading in broken English. It's really, rather surreal. And then when I continue declining, they ask to see my muschi.
