This is debunking the claim that changing your profile pic to a cartoon will help pedaphiles find children. I have read an article just today saying it aids pediphiles on their search for vulnerable children on facebook. I think it is a load of bullshit...what do you think?

(cannot find the article...when I do I will post it)

When I read the title of this thread (Have you heard) I was really hoping that when I opened it the post would simply say "that the bird is the word." I'm so disappointed.

it's crap.... i also agree that changing statuses and profile pics does nothing to raise awareness, i just did because i LOVE the snorks and no one else put em up!

I would actually think it would make it harder for them to find children. If everyones pic is of a cartoon and not just children (who in my opinion don't need to be on facebook period) it would be harder for them to pick out who is a child and who is not.

I thoroughly enjoyed changing my profile pic to my childhood friends. In fact I couldn't pick just one I changed it four times. (Chuckie Finster (Rugrats, also my son looks just like him - the glasses), Baby Bop (Barney), Blossom (PowerPuff Girls) and Ducky ( The Land Before Time.

It's a load of crock. You don't need to help the damn perverts if they want something they'll find it.

The whole thing is a crock. Changing your pic or adding some app to facebook or changing your status to "it's such and such week.. repost this if you care" isn't going to do anything about domestic violence or child abuse or breast cancer or any of that.

Whether it works or not it is a nice little walk down memory lane, we can all see the cartoons we grew up with and reminisce a little.

If it does do something, if it even just makes ONE person think about the plight of abused and neglected children and gets them to do something or donate something to help them it is worth it in my opinion!!!!!!!

I'd say putting up pics of kids has gotta be worse...we ALL loved cartoons, it doesn't say anything about who you are or whether or not you have kids...the whole thing is stupit

I don't change my profile pic. for things like that, because I don't believe it actually makes a difference.. That and I love the 6 month old serious baby face i've had for 3 months...

I for one am keeping my picture a cartoon....I saw people on facebook today passing around the warning about pediphiles and like I said I think it is a load of horseshit

Yeah I heard about this. I never went ahead and changed my profile pic to a cartoon one. I saw this going around Facebook and then yesterday I saw this post going around claiming that the group that created this is a bunch of pediphiles.
