Ipce is a forum for people who are engaged in scholarly discussion about the understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults.

 In this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young and adult partners.
Ipce meets once every one or two years in a different country, publishes a newsletter and a web site, co-ordinates the (electronic) exchange of texts and keeps an archive of specific written publications.    


Citizen: “Oh Sir, how to live in this country with a child molester hidden behind every tree!”
Minister: “We will protect the nation’s children by removing and forbidding every tree.”

Regrettably …

As Ipce’s secretary and webmaster since years, I had claimed myself a sabbatical year. Thus, I gave over my tasks and data to other Ipce members who promised to take over the flag.

Regrettably, they have done nothing, being attacked by severe stress or depression. So: no report of the Ipce Meeting 2003, no new Newsletter, no update of the Ipce web, no pile of files or documents ready to use, even no financial report. The latter could be reconstructed.
Well, I have taken over the flag, and here I am back again.  

Regrettably …

Back again, I had to face a lot of problems arisen. From November 2003, a lot of people, citizens of Canada and the US, have exchanged a lot of messages, soft ware and plans on a Forum. This had lead to a series of attacks on pedophilia-related web sites, especially in February 2004, mostly DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. Some tens of people send some thousands of messages or hits to the same address at the same time, so the server will be overloaded and stop its service. The provider will take that web site away. Claims were sent to providers, reports to police, and the names and addresses of domain owners were published to attack them in their neighborhood. I have seen all those messages and began to make a table of sites proposed to attack. My list counts 115 sites, and still I had not reached the end of those messages.

However, only a few sites are disappeared, other had installed protection again DoS attacks, others came back on another address.  

Regrettably …

Problems have also arisen for groups and webmasters in Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as the US. You can read about them in this Newsletter, which is – as life is – a mixture of the good, the bad and the ugly, to say it with the title of one of Iris Murdoch’s excellent books. As an ugly section, you will read about a series of absurdities in this Newsletter.
Note, that all this kind of odd law proposals and juridical decisions are made on the basis of  fallacy, biases and emotions – supposedly scapegoat processes in society – and not on the basis of  unbiased honest research and true facts.
Ipce continues to gather & publish good unbiased research and true facts on its web site.  


there are also written good proposals, good articles and good books.  

Your secretary and webmaster
