OpPedoHunt is a group of volunteers, professionals and a Google+ community that works to identify and bring to justice online predators and child pornography merchants. OpPedoHunt seeks to help confront the growing segment of online predators who exploit children driven by deviance and financial gain. Online predators include active pedophiles, non-compliant registered sexual offenders, child molesters and the consumers & distributors of child pornography. OpPedoHunt is owned and operated by Anonymous activist, RhinoWarrior Pinkie Pie, this writer, Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. and AlphaTina Connelly. Provided below is a brief overview of OpPedoHunt, their perplexing suspension by Google Plus and the definition of online predation.
On or about Sunday June 14, 2015, Google Plus suspended the OpPedoHunt Google Plus Community stating there was content that breached their Google Plus Content & Conduct Policy. On Monday June 15, 2015, an appeal was submitted with online user content being deleted dating back to June 11th. As the moderators could not find any content breaching their content & conduct policy, identified iPredator users profiles dating back to June 11th were deleted assuming one of these or a combination thereof were the complainants.
Also on Monday June 15, 2015, this writer created a private Google Plus Community called “OpPedoHunt ” preventing identified Pedophiles and iPredators public access to our profiling, reporting and hunting efforts. After approximately a week of waiting for Google to un-suspend OpPedoHunt, that community was deleted and the private OpPedoHunt now serves as their iPredator portal and community.

“A relentless hyper vigilance, passion and patience to introduce the concept of justice to online sexual predators, child pornography consumers and distributors who seek to exploit innocent children.“ Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2015)
Online Predators are defined as adult online users who seek to exploit vulnerable children or adolescents for sexual or other abusive purposes. Online Predators are sexual predators who use Information and Communications Technology and the Internet to locate, target and victimize minors. Although online sexual predation occurs between adult online users, the underage minor child is the primary target.
The typology of iPredator that is categorized in Online Predators has a variety of different terms used to describe the same patterns and motivations for their abuse. Historically, those who are not familiar with the profiles of sexual predators, pedophiles and child molesters tend to view them as being easily identified and incompetent. Although the vast majority of sexual predators are neighbors, peers, relatives or mentors, the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace makes accurate assailant identification a daunting task.
Common forums Online Predators use to target children include chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites for the purpose of flirting with and meeting minors for illicit sexual experiences. Online Predators often are motivated to manipulate or “groom” a minor with the ultimate goal of meeting and engaging in sexual activity, despite knowing they are engaging in illegal activities. In the simplest definition, “grooming” is best described as a sexual predator’s premeditated method of manipulating a child with the result being sexually themed.

“Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is a metaphorical needle for injecting ignorance into an online predator’s target so the child thinks their sexually themed conversations are innocent banter.“ Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2015)
