Criminal Law Wired reports of the antics of Perverted-Justice.com, a vigilante website that posts chat transcript, picture, cell-phone number and e-mail address of pedophiles. Those busted by the volunteers are given the chance to reply.

"These Perverted-Justice.com investigator wannabes think it's so easy to go into a chat room and just start talking, and for them it is, because they have no goals in mind other than humiliating someone and getting media attention," said Julie Posey, a Colorado activist who has worked with police in chat-room stings for eight years and helped convict more than 70 men.
