Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Orlando Sentinel needs a lesson in the internet

From today's paper.

Student sent to prison in cybersex case

Orlando -- A South Florida college student who traveled to Merritt Island in January to have sex with an 11-year-old girl and videotape the acts was sentenced Tuesday to 11 years in federal prison.

Lawrence Patrick Tobar, 21, of Palm Beach Gardens also was ordered by U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell in Orlando to pay a $10,000 fine, serve five years of supervised release and register as a sex offender after prison.

Tobar had arranged through an Internet chat room to meet a father and his daughter for a sexual encounter there, but the "father" turned out to be an undercover officer with the Brevard-Volusia Child Exploitation Task Force, a coalition of officers from the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and sheriff's offices in both counties.
I'm sorry to inform the Sentinel, but that's not cybersex. Cybersex is the act of pretending one is having sex or masturbating in an online chat or IM. Before anyone asks how I know this, I'll give an easy answer. As a former AOL subscriber I used to get asked if I wanted to cyber on many occasions. One of the drawbacks of entering that online service's public chatrooms.

Is there anyone out there who wants to teach the paper the true definition of cybersex? Time for sarcastic laughter.
