  California Coast University is a Family
Posted by: Randall Flagg - 05-27-2007, 01:44 AM - Forum: Distance Learning Discussion - Replies (1)

"The university was started with family in mind and continues with that today.  In December we lost one of our 'family members'.  Barbara Posthuma, our registrar, passed away at the age of 74.  She started working at CCU as a temporary employee more than 26 years ago.  She has gone through many changes over the years with the university, including the passing of the founder of the school, Thomas Neal Sr. and the achievement of DETC Accreditation.

Barbara was a great spirit who enjoyed working with our students and enjoyed seeing them succeed throughout their careers.  The time she spent with each and every student was very precious to her and she took great pride in helping students.

Brabara left behind 6 children and many great-grandchildren. The family at California Coast University is still at a loss with her sudden passing. However, we do know she thought of us as her family as we did her.
--California Coast University-April 2007

I just wanted to contrast this wonderful lady with those we often see at the DL forums and their constant self promotion.  Thomas Neal and family, along with people like Barbara Posthuma, and others, are the real DL experts.  They are the ones who build and create schools, find people in need of education and provide answers.  With all the self promoters we have running around screaming their own names and pleading for us to please send money, it's nice to see the real experts like Barbara and Tom.  They got up early every single day, went to work, and created things and ideas.  They made schools like CCU work, which allowed adults who missed out on college degrees to get another chance at education via DL.  It's true that Barbara and Tom were not household names but they were true DL experts.  And they learned about DL not by listening to themselves brag and chatter, but by going to work at a fine DL school each day for week after week, month after month, and year after year.  They spent more time on DL in a year than many of the so-called experts have in their entire lives.  

That's how it is done by the real experts, day after day, all year long.  They know what a DL degree will do because they actually do it and see it.  They are the real experts.  We don't often hear their real names or stories, they get drowned out by the people who are busy shouting their own names and giving us their addresses to send them our money, but real experts are out there,  you just  have to look beyond the people shouting.  They don't have time for all the self-promotion we so often see.  They are too busy doing DL and not talking it.  They have been in this thing for the long haul.  These are the people I would speak to and trust, not the ones who are in and out, like this today and like that tomorrow.  They have earned the right to be called DL experts by others.  As was said by CCU, they will be missed.

  Bear and Douglas / Back in Their Safe Haven
Posted by: Randall Flagg - 05-25-2007, 11:56 AM - Forum: John Bear - Replies (7)

http://forums.degreeinfo.com/showthread.php?t=26504

I see Papa and Baby Bear are back in their little porno nest at DegreeInfo.  Now they can be protected from those nasty old people (like me) who remind them of their lies and past affiliations with those very schools they now laugh at.  Well, they didn't laugh while they were cashing the checks.

Isn't it sickening to see Douglas snap and bitch at people like a prostitute in heat and then the people he whines at and complains about turn around and apologize to him.  Hell, Bear and Douglas would take money from the worst school in the world if the price was right. Here are the schools they were part of.
Greenwich University
Fairfax University
L.I.A.R.
Millard Fillmore
MIGS
Union Institute
Columbia Pacific University
Excelsior
IIAS

Now this is what THEY have done and it's not one damn bit better than all the schools they raise hell about.  Bear and Douglas have played both sides of the street and done it for the same reasons they blame others for, 'profit'.....  Smile  And they have laughed all the way to the bank. And those boobs at DI haven't the balls to call these two so called experts on their lies and past affiliations.  Maybe it is better they hide out at DI, they can't run with the men, better they play with the boys. Chip can help them with those under age boys. On this he is an expert.   Rolleyes

At today's rate that's US$680.72. Such a deal, especially since you can see his entire act for free here and get a floor show by Gollum as a bonus.

Wow, ten speakers. If Ezell packs them in like in the video there might be more speakers than listeners.

Is that what they are calling the bank security guard now? Hey, maybe he could get Rich Douglass a guard job. We all know he was a prison guard for three years.

  Discouraging
Posted by: Randall Flagg - 05-21-2007, 04:45 AM - Forum: Distance Learning Discussion - Replies (1)

I know it is very annoying and discouraging to lose as many posts and  as much information as DLTruth has but we must move on.  When you are dealing with the gang these things will happen.  They do call employers and they do call schools and most of all they will lie and distort the truth.  But that is the very reason we must continue presenting the other side.  Just showing the unseemly side of DI was very useful to the world of DL. Showing that John Bear's past is NOT as he claims. Showing they do not all work at positions paying 350K as they would have the world believe, is of value.  

We are the other side of the story.  If we don't tell it who will?  We must all post as often as possible and rebuild DL Truth.  We must make the effort to post even when we are too busy.  If we do not, they WIN, and then all people will hear from the DL discussion sites will be the past they wish to talk about, the $150 bottles of wine they drink, and that Excelsior will get you that great job at Harvard or that Union will be accepted by Yale every day. They will say a 110 day degree from TESC is just as acceptable as a 4 year program at the University of Texas. Someone has to tell it like it really is, and that is us.

They are the overinflated balloons, we are the pins.

Here's a link to a video presentation by Allen Ezell:
http://willmedia.will.uiuc.edu/ramgen/CA...s051114.rm
(RealPlayer required.)

In it he states that the US federal government is the largest single revenue source for degree mills! So the solution seems simple, just shut down the government!

BTW, anyone have any idea who that bald, pot-bellied douchebag is that introduces Ezell? He spends most of his time scratching his ass, picking his nose, playing pocket pool, posing with his hand on his hip, what a poofter.

"Graduation rates at the Southern California campus is 6%, 4% among online students."
---NY Times

Unqualified instructors, well, they hired Douglas and Bruce Tait/ nuff said.

Graduation rates are horrible, about at the level of Herriot Watt. It's not enough to just throw this stuff out there and say get it or don't. It is up to the school to get this stuff right and to help students get through the material and reach graduation. Schools like UOP are no more than profit makers for the owners. Do us a favor guys, go sell used cars and leave DL to the experts like California Coast University. CCU does give a damn if you graduate and have success in life. It may not be Harvard but you can go much farther with a degree from CCU than with an empty bank account thanks to UOP, and no degrees.

  The truth about John Bear and Degreeinfo
Posted by: Trevor Nigel - 05-15-2007, 05:52 AM - Forum: John Bear - Replies (18)

Quote:The truth about John B. Bear and degreeinfo
By Mr. Degree

It's time more people learned the truth about John B. Bear and his followers.

For many years, John B. Bear has published an opinionated guidebook on distance education. He's also been a voluminous poster to Usenet and to distance education discussion forums. He was an administrator at one, Degreeinfo.com, until recently.

The media treat John Bear, whose real name is John Andrew Klempner, as an expert on distance education. He certainly knows a lot about the subject. But what they don't tell you is Bear's shady past and the fact that he has only one motivation - to knock the competitors of whoever is paying him at that particular time. Lately, he's hitched his wagon to the cause of mainstream accredited schools who want to eliminate legitimate schools that choose not to become accredited - and so can afford to charge lower tuition and offer better value for the consumer.

Bear claims that he's fighting "diploma mills" - "schools" that sell diplomas for payment. This is a smokescreen. Real diploma mills - the "degree in 30 days, no questions asked" places - get an easy ride from Bear and his pals, because, for all that they are a bad thing, they are actually no competition for mainstream schools. No, their attention is directed towards schools that compete with the accredited sector but don't have the crippling costs of maintaining accreditation to worry about.

Bear says it's all about quality. But accreditation doesn't guarantee quality - it doesn't even examine it. In their paper for the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, "Can College Accreditation live up to its Promise?", George Leef and Roxana Burris concluded, "Putting the matter in a nutshell, we conclude that accreditation has not served to ensure quality, has not protected the curriculum from serious degradation, and gives students, parents, and public decision-makers almost no useful information about institutions of higher education."

So what we've got on our hands here is a turf war. On the one hand, there's the mainstream schools who are held back from experimenting by the conservative accreditors, and who run their show for the benefit of their tenured faculty, not their students. On the other, you've got the small independent schools, who deliver an education tailored to student needs and market demand. No wonder the mainstream schools want to play dirty so they can create a monopoly. And it's their money that's directly and indirectly backing Bear and his gang.

And playing dirty is exactly what these guys want to do. They're the guys who call up your employer and local newspaper and start telling them your education's not "legitimate" in their eyes. They tell them that your right to free educational choice among legally-operating schools is just a cover for you to commit fraud. They run smear campaigns on the net, on television and in print that do everything possible to put the words "unaccredited" and "diploma mill" in the same sentence.

Who are these guys? Well, a lot of them want to stay in the shadows and carry on with their morally degenerate, illegal activities of harassment and bullying. We'll tell you more about them later. Some of them, however, are happy to step into the spotlight. John Bear is one of these. But he's been a little selective in what he's prepared to tell you about his past when he's quoted in the media and on his online resume. It's time to set the record straight.

DID YOU KNOW.that John B. Bear has owned and run not one but TWO DIPLOMA MILLS - yes, that's DEGREE-SELLING DIPLOMA MILLS? They were called the "London Institute of Applied Research" and the "Millard Fillmore Institute" and operated in the 1960s and 1970s. Bear sold honorary doctorates, no questions asked, from both entities. Doing that now in the USA or UK would land him a hefty jail term. In August 1974, "Education and Training" commented thus in a section on honorary PhDs, "It has resulted in some persons exploiting this situation by establishing their own degree mills. For example two Americans, John Bear and James H. Campbell, operating from the Isle of Wight, have been selling honorary doctorates of their so-called LONDON INSTITUTE of APPLIED RESEARCH. In nine months their turnover from the sale of phoney doctorates exceeded US $50,000."

DID YOU KNOW.that John B. Bear has part-owned and run TWO UNACCREDITED SCHOOLS now described by his cronies as DIPLOMA MILLS? Those schools are the International Institute for Advanced Studies, MO, later to become Greenwich University, HI, and Fairfax University, LA. Whilst he ran them, he was consulting on diploma mills for the FBI. Why did he do that? Simple - to knock the competition and build himself up in the media as an expert.

DID YOU KNOW.that John B. Bear has part-owned another UNACCREDITED SCHOOL - Columbia Pacific University - that he once described in glowing terms in his guidebook, giving it his highest ranking? Yet now, when he comments in the media about the school and its graduates, he doesn't mention his involvement and criticizes the school as if he had never supported it? That's hypocrisy in our book.

DID YOU KNOW.that John B. Bear, in the book "Degree Mills" which he co-authored with Allen Ezell, makes a great show of entities not having specific authority to confer degrees from the government being bogus? Yet the International Institute for Advanced Studies, which he owned and ran, had no such approval, nor was such approval needed to confer degrees from its state. Nor is it needed in a number of other jurisdictions. They're trying to sell you the line that unless the government owns or controls it, it's bogus. Bull.

DID YOU KNOW.that John B. Bear's cronies at Degreeinfo and elsewhere include the following, some of whom have NO EXPERIENCE OF OR INVOLVEMENT WITH DISTANCE EDUCATION AT ALL? - not as students, faculty or administrators on distance learning programs. Nor do most have any involvement with schools outside the accredited mainstream - for those who do, they're sure keeping quiet about it lest their buddies turn on them. The only real interest of these guys is in brutal "consumer activist" campaigns against schools they don't like and their grads. They will stoop to any depths to achieve their aims - lying and vicious character assassination is their stock-in-trade. And if you challenge them at degreeinfo, expect to be banned without warning and placed on their list of targets for attack.

Let's take a satirical look at them one-by-one:

- "Mr Coffee Enema" - an alternative therapist who advocates COFFEE ENEMAS as a CURE FOR CANCER? This is Chip White, co-owner of the site, and a man with no apparent degree, or involvement in distance education.

- "The Snake Oil Salesman" - another alternative therapist, who offers "distance healing sessions" where he thinks he can heal you without even meeting you? This is Nathan Whiteside, co-owner of the site. Again, he has no apparent involvement in distance education.

- "Mr $40,000 Hooker" - a rabid left-winger who spent $40,000 trying to "save" an Asian prostitute? This is Gregg DesElms, moderator. Again, he has no apparent involvement in distance education. Recently, he posted not-so-veiled death threats against someone he disagrees with at degreeinfo. How did degreeinfo respond? They made him a moderator!

- "The Natural Born Killer" - a woman whose campaign against an unaccredited school owner led to the press branding her department "natural born killers"? This is Marcia Langsjoen of the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Again, she has no apparent involvement in distance education.

- "The Fat Homo" - yes, that's how he describes himself - a former gay activist who works for the state of Oregon and uses his position there to pursue personal vendettas, including against a conservative Christian school that maintains traditional teaching on homosexuality? This is Alan Contreras, administrator of the Oregon Office for Degree Authorization and author of the ODA list of unaccredited schools - a list riddled with inaccuracy and bias, based on degreeinfo gossip. He's been sued by schools twice, and each time has lost the case and had to have the statutes amended. Last time, he was ordered to undergo remedial instruction in defamation law. Need we say - he has no apparent involvement in distance education?

- "Where "C" stands for Contradiction" - a man who condemns unaccredited schools, yet has worked at three of them - Greenwich, MIGS and Virginia International University? This is Rich C. Douglas, who has published one (count it!) article in his whole life, yet holds himself out as an expert on distance education. After two years of trying to convince John B. Bear that MIGS was legit, he dropped that idea and Bear got his his Union Ph.D. in 8 months.

- "The Cyberstalker" - this is Bill Huffman, who has no apparent involvement in distance education. He created an entire website dedicated to defaming and cyberstalking someone who had challenged him on Usenet - and after all that couldn't even find out where his unaccredited doctorate was from. Note the "humor" of Huffman putting a graphic of his target's head exploding on his stalker page.

- "Professor Goody-Goody" - this is George D. Gollin, a professor at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, whose interest in this whole issue is confined to promoting the mainstream sector that keeps him in tenure and eliminating its competitors.

- "Death Threat Jeff" - this is Jeff Hampton, who threatened to shoot someone who disagreed with him at degreeinfo by private message - the board owners' response was to ban the guy he threatened and to do nothing to censure Hampton. No distance education experience as far as can be ascertained.

- "Uncle Fester" - this is John Weaver-Hudson, who posts under the alias "uncle janko" - a bitter, hate-filled LUTHERAN PRIEST from Michigan. Has he ever taught or studied via distance education? You guessed it...

- "The Miami Motor Mouth" - Gus Sainz, who owns a medical sales corp and reveals nothing about his education whilst mercilessly attacking that of others. Not enough? Hey, he'll take cheap shots at innocent members of your family and your moral standards too, whilst remaining the mystery man himself.

- "The Bear Clone" - meet George Brown, Aussie owner of his own one-man "academic verification service" designed to attack private education that doesn't submit to the shackles of state control - and the consumer's interests can go to hell. Brown's all sweetness and light on the surface, but behind the scenes, he's backing the others to the hilt. Watch him at work here. Degreeinfo moderator from fall 2005 onwards.

- "The Traitor" - Peter French, Aussie mate of Brown, whose role is to infiltrate any opposition to degreeinfo, gain their confidence and then rat them out to his degreeinfo masters. Holds a doctorate from Sussex College of Technology, a degree mill. Oh, and he spent three years trying to prove his American Coastline University Ph.D., which he now doesn't talk about, is valid.

- "Jack the Ripper" - this is Jack Tracey, who mercilessly attacks the educational choices of others. Has a degree from Harvard Extension earned through night school but no known experience of distance education. Degreeinfo moderator from fall 2005.

And the granddaddy of them all, who started this ball rolling:

- "The Truck Driver" - Steve Levicoff - another gay activist who holds three "quickie" degrees and mouths off aggressively and profanely at anyone who disagrees with him - he'll call you a pedophile on Usenet just for the hell of it. It's Levicoff, helped by his private eye brother Warren, who started the whole business of "outting" people with degrees from schools he didn't like. He's been lying low since a school sued him for calling it a mill, but we know he's still there behind the scenes. No academic job for him - he drives a truck for a living.

These, and others, are the enemies of freedom in education. Under the guise of "consumer protection", they're working to ensure that your choice in education is restricted to high-priced mainstream schools who share their liberal socialist agenda.

We say it is time they realized that they have a fight on their hands.

  “Amber Alerts” Inspire New “NAMBLA Alert! Monitoring System”

“Amber Alerts” Inspire New “NAMBLA Alert! Monitoring System”

Quote:[Image: nambla-alert.JPG]

Longtime allies the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) announced a bold technological joint venture today that will enhance the ability of NAMBLA members to reach out to needy young boys on a local market basis.

The new NAMBLA Alert! wireless monitoring system uses cutting edge technology to beam users real-time data on local gatherings of young boys where “the presence of NAMBLA representatives might prove beneficial,” according to NAMBLA spokesman Peter Carter.

“As the enlightened among us recognize, young boys thoroughly enjoy– some might argue, require– the company of older, sweatier, hairier males,” continued Carter. “Even if they often need assistance recognizing this fact. The NAMBLA Alert system empowers the old to find the young in a timely, convenient manner. Now, I don’t want to get caught up in vague value judgments like ‘is it legal to have sex with an 8-year-old boy?’. That’s for our good friends in the 9th Circuit Court to decide. We are simply providing a public service.”

NAMBLA Alerts are available to members for a monthly fee, and use the latest in satellite technology to beam critical information to PDAs, cell phones, and other mobile devices. Carter does not shy away from the fact that his system is based on the wildly successful ‘Amber Alert’ program.

“Why try to reinvent the wheel?” he asked rhetorically. “‘Amber Alerts’ are extremely effective at helping to locate and recover missing children by beaming messages to large numbers of people. We plan on doing the exact same thing. Except after we locate them, we are going to have sex with them.”

One dues-paying NAMBLA member is already a believer.

“My job requires quite a bit of travel,” said Chester Hunsacker. “And it can be so hard to find unsupervised boys when you’re in a strange town. You can only cruise the local parks and ice cream stands so many times before people start looking at you like your some kind of creep. The new NAMBLA Alert system enables me to drastically reduce my “trolling” time without being made to feel like a lecher by ‘concerned parents.’”

Other key features:
  • trench coat pocket compatible

  • plays a full range of children’s cartoons

  • LCD Display made from space-age polymers– easy to clean and extremely resistant to milkshake spills, Jolly Rancher smudge-marks, and three of four major body fluids

  • a variety of ring tones including: a whimpering puppy, the Nintendo Wii start-up music, and the very popular “Barry Bonds Ring Tone” which includes the baseball great uttering such catchphrases as, “Psst. Hey boys, it’s me, future Hall of Fame baseball player Barry Bonds. I’m stuck in the trunk of this rental car. Just hop in the front seat with this nice gentleman and we’ll all go out for ice cream.“(*Note: Barry Bonds ring tone only available with the “Executive” model)

  • one-touch access to the ACLU’s 24-hour free legal defense hot line

  • “risk level” monitoring which can correctly gauge the level of adult supervision at a children’s event to within one chaperon

  • Daily “Coaxing Tips” designed to thwart the Nazi-like protection efforts of local law enforcements

The NAMBLA Alert Monitoring System is available at the ACLU and NAMBLA websites, and also via a fleet of vans with blackout-tinted windows at a playground near you.

  Degreeinfo.com Exposed as Front for Gay Pedophile Porn

INTERNET DISTANCE LEARNING SITE DEGREEINFO.COM EXPOSED AS A FRONT FOR GAY PEDOPHILE PORN


Investigations have found that the Internet distance learning site http://www.degreeinfo.com is closely linked to gay pedophile pornography. The co-founder and registered owner of the site, El Cerrito, CA, resident Thomas "Chip" White, is at the center of a network of degenerate activity, including hard-core pornographic websites which are attractive to pedophiles both because of their focus on deliberately young-looking aadult men and the repeated use of the word "boy" - which is customarily used to describe a minor - in their titles.

Pornographer White set up Degreeinfo as a safe haven for his group of friends after they came under increasing challenge on an unmoderated Usenet forum dealing with distance education. The site purports to give consumer information on distance learning and via its forum to advise distance learners. It is now clear that this whole enterprise may well have been an elaborate attempt to conceal the true nature of the activities of White and his cronies, and to gain them public trust by deception so that they could go about their real business behind the scenes.

What is intriguing is that White's interest in distance learning is not a personal one. He holds no degree, nor has he ever studied or taught via distance learning. It appears increasingly as if Degreeinfo was simply a clever attempt by White to create a cover of legitimacy and spurious moral authority for his main business interests in pornography. The front  he put up at Degreeinfo has almost certainly snared innocent bystanders  with a legitimate interest in distance education as well as serving White's inner circle of degenerates. Well-known distance learning writer John Bear, who lives close to White in El Cerrito, CA, was an administrator at Degreeinfo until recently (http://groups.google.co.uk/group/alt.edu...8cf9e6292a), and the popular "Bear's Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning" continues to credit Degreeinfo as a contributor. Other senior members at the site include Alan Contreras, a former gay lobbyist and now administrator of the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization, George Brown, director of Higher Ed Consulting (Australia), who is a Degreeinfo moderator, Revd. John Weaver-Hudson, pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in Hartford, Michigan, and Dr George Gollin, a physics professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

White's Mail Boxes Inc. address at 5245 College Ave #217, Oakland, CA 94618, is not only listed as the base for Degreeinfo.com, LLC.  (http://kepler.ss.ca.gov/corpdata/ShowLpl...0212710119), but also for Media Resource Communications, Inc. (http://kepler.ss.ca.gov/corpdata/ShowAll...r=C2439574).

White is listed as agent for service of process for both corporations by the State of California at the same address, with A.J. Braden of Dublin, CA, listed as president of MRC. Other mailboxes used by MRC are located at  1380 Lead Hill Blvd, Suite 106, Roseville, CA 95661, and PO Box 7995, Berkeley, CA 94707.

MRC is described in an Internet press release as owning "a number of adult websites and adult video production companies." These websites include http://www.boyfunk.com, http://www.boysfeetclub.com, http://www.boysecrets.com, http://www.cuteboyvideos.com, http://www.ajscloset.com and http://www.gaybucks.com. The first four of these are registered to White's 5245 College Ave mailbox according to http://www.samspade.org, while gaybucks.com and ajscloset.com, are registered along with Degreeinfo.com to the PO Box 7995 address listed above. Degreeinfo was also registered to the College Ave mailbox until yesterday.

MRC's Cuteboy Videos uses the advertising tagline "Brand New Amateur Teen Videos." Cuteboy Videos and its fellow MRC studio "18 West" have produced video titles including "School's Out", "Elijah's Wood" (presumably named after the child actor Elijah Wood), "Cumdominium" and "Twink Tails".

On a gay chat forum (http://www.triplexgay.com/showthread.php?t=190&page=2) White introduces himself, "Chip here from Boyfunk/Gaybucks. My business partner AJ and I run Boyfunk.com, Boysecrets.com, Boysfeetclub.com and two video studios, 18West and Cuteboyvideos. The company has been around since 2001, but our real growth and visibility has happened within the past year or so." A similar message appeared at http://thegayboard.com/archive/index.php/t-59.html. In another posting, White used the disturbing signature line "We are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands."
(http://forums.gaywidewebmasters.com/show...ode=linear)

Aside from his pornographic activities, White has previously come to attention as the promoter of Gerson therapy, an extreme alternative health practice which advocates coffee enemas as a cure for cancer (http://www.sawilsons.com/,
http://www.consumerhealth.org/tothealth/...age01.html).

Ironically, the site http://www.quackwatch.com, which has consistently opposed alternative medicine, has allied itself with Degreeinfo in its attacks on holders of degrees in alternative medicine whilst granting Degreeinfo's owners immunity from its investigations. Nathan Whiteside, who describes himself as Degreeinfo's C.O.O. and who lives close to White in Oakland, CA, is another alternative therapist with no experience of distance education, though he does claim to be able to heal people without meeting them (http://www.healingforthesoul.com/disthealing.html).

White's pornography has adopted an approach that should raise major red flags among responsible citizens in both the gay and straight communities by focussing on the extreme youth of the actors featured on his sites. In an Internet press release, MRC describes http://www.boyfunk.com as featuring "youthfully attractive gay men" - stated to be between the ages of 18 and 20 on the site - and Braden goes on to say ".we are very, very picky about our models. We pick a very specific look, so our  customers know exactly what they're getting every time." This is coded language for material designed to appeal specifically to gay men who like to look at explicit pornography featuring actors who could easily be taken for minors - in other words pedophiles. The site content, which includes hard-core still images and video of gay sex, depicts activities which are illegal in over 50 countries in the world.

Even if the sites that White runs are technically legal in the USA because they feature adult participants, they are surely acting as a magnet for pedophiles to gather and indulge their depraved fantasies. Studies of pedophiles reveal that they use the Internet to gather in groups in order to share images of pedophilia and to plan and execute the abuse of children (euphemistically referred to by some of them as "boylove"), with an intricate network of coded sites and backchannels. White represents every parent's worst nightmare in encouraging this behavior through his site's focus on very young-looking men and his repeated use of the pedophile trigger word "boy" to brand his wares and make them appealing to child abusers.

It is clearly vital that those who might have been taken in by Degreeinfo's outward show of respectability are aware that it has been funded by and is in turn funding pornography of the most depraved kind. It is entirely possible that a number of members of Degreeinfo's "inner circle" have pedophile tendencies or are themselves pedophiles, using the site as a front for their criminal and immoral activities. We call upon concerned citizens to join us in our call to shut White's sites down and take appropriate action to ensure that he can no longer serve as a danger to the nation's young people.
