OpPedoHunt is the name of an internet safety volunteer group’s child predator identification and G+ community. OpPedoHunt seeks to help other online users and Anonymous groups confront the growing segment of online sexual predators. Online predators includes active pedophiles, non-compliant registered sexual offenders, child molesters and members of the online child pornography industry. This author, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., is honored to administrate this private community. By accepting their invitation, this writer can investigate the relevance of his iPredator construct. As this is a private community, online users interested in joining must send a request prior to admission. The OpPedoHunt mission statement is as follows:
“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 and molest innocent children.”
Pedophilia, child molestation and various other paraphilias always have been part of the human condition. What has changed is the introduction of an artificial electronic universe called cyberspace. Not only are children of the Information Age involved in developmental maturation online, but this writer also firmly believes the digital world enables children to live out their adolescent fantasies and needs to be recognized and accepted by their peer groups. Today’s children are no different from today’s Information Age adults in relationship to being ICT dependent.
When a child is discouraged, angry, isolated or depressed, their hunger for recognition and acceptance becomes insatiable. The ability for cyberspace to trick the mind into thinking the illusion is real; a child is far more susceptible to being manipulated by other online users. It is crucial to note that online sexual predation is far more designed to target a child’s psychodynamics as opposed to pre-Information Age predation. Now that mobile device technology enables every school aged child internet access at any time, parents and primary caregivers are easily defeated.
Online sexual predators are no longer assailants who reside near their target. With social media and the internet, child predators can target children from the other side of the planet. Until industrialized nations recognize that the dark side of cyberspace is not just dollars and cents and have far-reaching consequences for children, the online sexual predator will continue to roam freely online.
It is for this reason that OpPedoHunt’s mission is so vital. Each time they successfully identify and confront an online predator, the number of children they save are vast. Not just the dedicated members of OpPedoHunt deserve recognition, but all Anonymous activists who fight against tyranny and child exploitation. In addition to ferreting out & identifying online predators, the OpPedoHunt G+ community publishes internet safety and cyber attack prevention information relevant to all online users.

Online Predators: The typology of iPredator categorized as online predators have 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. The vast majority of a sexual predator’s victims are neighbors, peers, relatives or family members. Despite this reality of proximity, the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace makes accurate assailant identification a daunting task. Online Predators are 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 goal. Frequent forums used by online predators 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. In instances where meeting their victim is not the primary objective, online predators attempt to persuade children to participate in online sexual activities motivated by sexual deviance or for financial gain engaging in the distribution and sale of child pornography. At present, distribution and sale of online child pornography is one of the most profitable business ventures online users can undertake.
“The “veil of anonymity” afforded to all humanity encourage some to activate their exploitative and deviant fantasies. What they fail to realize is their nonsense only gives governments a reason for taking more control of the internet.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
Dark Psychology: Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other persons motivated by criminal and deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social sciences theory. All of humanity has the potentiality to victimize humans and other living creatures. While many, restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior.
Dark Psychology assumes that criminal, deviant, and abusive behaviors are purposive and have some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. It is the remaining 1%, Dark Psychology parts from Adlerian theory and Teleology. Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, faiths and humanity have this proverbial cancer. From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side hidden within us that some have called “Evil” and others have defined as criminal, deviant or psychopathic.
Dark Psychology posits there are people who commit these same acts and do so not for power, money, sex, retribution or any other known purpose. They commit horrid acts without a goal. Simplified, their ends do not justify their means. There are people who violate and injure others for the sake of doing so. Within in all of us is this potential. A potential to harm others without cause, explanation, or purpose is the area explored. Dark Psychology assumes this dark potential is incredibly complex and even harder to define.
“Dark Psychology is both a human consciousness construct and study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others motivated by psychopathic, deviant or psychopathological criminal drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives, evolutionary biology, and social sciences theory. All of humanity has the potentiality to victimize humans and other living creatures. While many, restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology explores these criminal, deviant and cybercriminal minds.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
Online Psychopathy: Online Psychopathy is an Information Age criminology and human consciousness construct replacing classic pre-Information Age Psychopathy. Online psychopathy is a characterlogical disorder describing anyone who skillfully uses cyberspace to exploit, control, subjugate and manipulate others. Driven by grandiosity or perversion, they experience no remorse or guilt from the devastation they cause others. Many online psychopaths do not break the law and live unscathed by law enforcement, fraternal organizations, religious institutions, and legal systems.
Just as classic psychopaths, Online psychopaths, are remorseless, without conscience, divisive and highly deceptive. The difference between the pre-Information Age psychopath and online psychopath is access to cyberspace, social media and Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
The “veil of anonymity” cyberspace afforded to all online users allows the online psychopath to cloak their modus operandi, goals, and nefarious online activities entirely. Coupled with their grandiosity and distorted fantasy life, cyberspace, and the internet acts as an accelerant to identifying and targeting unsuspecting, discouraged and vulnerable online users.
“Although the benefits of Information and Communications Technology far outweigh the detriments for society, humanity has been seduced by the illusory notion that more technology translates into a better quality of life.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)
iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. Driven by deviant fantasies, iPredators desire power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage.
iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants, and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity. Whether the offender is a cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll, cyber terrorist, cyberbully, online child pornography consumers and distributors or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:
- A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
- The usage of ICT to obtain exchange and deliver harmful information.
- A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.
Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include the exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators habitually deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.
Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target.
“Unlike traditional human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology. These assistances include the exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information transferred and the seemingly infinite access to the data available.” Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. (2012)

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose control of our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance, and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology (ICT) grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than reality based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.
