Miracles, Assholes, and Other Stuff from 2008

RittmanTear-jerking extremes the likes of which have since puked on me fill a huge portion of my worlds beyond Rittman 2008. In the dramatic category, deceitful promises, a ridiculous attitude, and a couple other jerkwads pull an unquestionable sweep. The blow-your-top category stars a freak who placed my daughter's image on a pro-pedophile website, and thanks to his website host, he then placed my name, address, email, and phone number on some hard-core underground pedophile websites. Education at home and work rank top in stressors; the afore mentioned jerkwads bring up the rear at third. Volunteer opportunities, photography, faith, war, and a little boy graduating fill some of the gaps. Inspired by Otis at Rapid Eye Reality, here is my year-ender.

RittmanFor Unto Us a Child is Born

What can I say? Really. If you have a child you know. The Good, the Bad, and The Beautiful chronicles the birth of our latest from the perspective of daddy. It was different this time, not greater or less than last, just different. Here are the photos. We actually have video of the whole thing. We haven't watched it. Oh, and ya know all those people who tell you that the second one is cake after the first? Liars. The whole lot of them.

The RC Jones Chronicles

Although I promised my wife that I would no longer blog about our construction project, I'm claiming an exemption. I simply can't write about 2008 without mentioning our perfect and wonderful home improvement experience with Jimmy Hoffa, Ed Norton's Aaron Stampler (sans ending revelation), Hale-ly Davidson and the rest of the merry crew at RC Jones and JD Hale construction companies. I don't have a title for the movie, but tag line will be something along the lines of, "Without Lube". The saga will continues.


Surprises of the Year: Providing my skills in a volunteer capacity gives me a great deal of satisfaction; My sister-in-law getting baptized; Growing a full beard for the first time in my life.

Memorable Moment (aside from the birth of my second child): Getting a press pass to photograph Barak Obama when he visited Clemson University



Attacking Those Who Lust After Children

Website stats allowed me to discover that a stolen image of my daughter graced the pages of a pro-pedophile website. Rather than tracking down this person who can only be described as a freak and sticking a knife in his heart, I complained to his website host, Softlayer Technologies. Softlayer did the right thing and took down the site. They also made a horrible ethical decision by giving my complete contact information to this pedo-sicko who subsequently posted it for all pedophiles to see on core.onion, an underground secure web portal. I also launched a verbal attack on these "child rights" advocates so that other parents can glimpse into the true mind of a pedophile.

Reading, Writing, and Propaganda

I continue to be amazed at the capacity for which a child can learn. Along with this learning comes homework, much more homework than I ever remember having as a child. Although completely necessary, this additional homework three nights a week added a great deal of stress to the family. However, it's paying off. My child can now read and spell much better than I could at that age. She can also surf the net and kick my butt in Wii bowling. The propaganda part comes into play with my career. I work in higher education. One task this year was to, "come up with one of those award-winning videos that the kids can understand." Believe It is the result.


Getting Old: Here are some of the facts:
My nephew was two-years-old when I moved to Gvegas. He graduated from high school this year.
I'm about one year shy of the age that my father was when he died. This has brought to my life a great deal of perspective over the last year.
I no longer have the capacity to drink more than one shot of liquor.
My Wii Fit age is 47.


Creativity: My passion for photography has returned, and I've transformed my blog into (mostly) a photoblog. I'm also leading my church Photo Ministry.

Peering Into the Mind of a Pedophile

Peering Into the Mind of a PedophileChildren have the right to have sex with adults! So called "pedophiles" should never be prosecuted because a child wants to preform sexual acts with them. The laws should be changed because innocent people are going to jail for nothing more than a natural act. Have you ever wondered what is going through the mind of a pedophile? Here is a prime example. Read it. Study it. Teach it to your children so that they may defend themselves against manipulation.

Predators referrer to it as a "Childs' Rights Movement". They believe that children, regardless of age, have the right to decide whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it, with whomever they please. Subsequently, they believe that the laws against pedophilia should be changed. As they see it, innocent people are imprisoned simply because they have sex with someone under the age of 18-years-old.

They will often use the right of free speech to preach their remorseless gospel. And on this point, this one particular point, I do have to agree with them. They are guaranteed this right just as I am. However, Websites that preach such language will frequently become a hidden haven of one-upsmanship testimonial or a breading ground of leads to vial photos and movies. I am willing to accept the fact that these sites may also entertain braggarts possibly seeking help in the only refuge that will accept without judgment. So for the greater good of children, what is the proper thing to do? Should these sites be allowed to remain in place? Should they all be taken down? Should the decision be based on site content? Should it be on a case-by-case basis? I have my opinions, but what are yours?

Below is an good-sized list that allows you to look into the mind of various predators and/or those who support the "Childs' Rights Movement".

I highly suggest that you read the back-story in, "A Pedophile Is Exploiting My Child" before reading any further. Or, at the very least, watch the video that you see before you.

Quotes exclusively from Jamon (AKA - Mr. Pedowar)

"Hi. I am the disturbing idiot pedophile referenced in these postings." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"Anonymity is useful for easing social friction. It is also not pro-pedophilia. In actuality the pedophile community despises and distrusts me. I also have no interest in revenge or tracking you down as you suggest. My efforts are of a peaceful intellectual concern, and are done out of a deep caring for you. It is impossible for you to see this from the perspective you have been raised in, but with time I will earn your trust." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

[Speaking about the incident of exposing my information on pedophile websites]
"It is scary, yes, but it is like someone having a panic attack over something benign. Your family is in no extra danger, even if the public knows every detail of your life." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

[Speaking to my request to take down the photo of my child and never publish it again]
"I can promise that I will publish everything. That is what publicy is. I can also tell you that if you or anyone else's baby is ever in danger, and I have the slightest bit of power to solve the problem, I will do so." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

[Taken from core.onion on the anonymous Tor network.]

"He says he hates anonymous and yet he is trying to be anonymous. He has no idea we know everything about him. He's a not too bright Christian." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"My phone # is 339.337.5181. Feel free to leave some nasty I hate pedo messages. The meaner the better. It'll go great for displaying the emotional insanity the hysteria causes." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"My YouTube account is Feel free to leave nasty comments. I suggest saying I look like a girl or an ugly pedo. Mark my videos as abuse, and YouTube will probably ban me." - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"Then go to Make fun of how I look and bulletin people saying a dangerous sexual predator is on MySpace to steal the children. Make it sound like I have super human powers to snatch them in the night through the modem line." - - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"What I find unfortunate is that you are seizing on this small bit of excitement and recognition you received for something in your blog and capitalizing off it to gain more publicity." - - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"You are responsible for censoring,, and much of my writings. I would say you have done enough damage, and the last thing you want to do is bring your daughter into it." - - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

"There is no threat. There are no pedophiles who want your daughter." - - Jamon (AKA- Mr. Pedowar)

Quotes from Anonymous User in Support of Mr. Pedowar

[Speaking to me]
"You're being a dick. Thousands of people's children's photos are online. It's pricks like you that destroy their society. No one ever goes near children any more. Once they had mentors and experienced being with adults and playing games with them. The only thing you should have concerned yourself over was whether any of the individuals wanted to kidnap your child. But there is no way to prove it...which is why your reaction is stupid. Now that you have thrown a tantrum, you have ensured this picture is widely distributed among these people and has increased the danger to your child, because of your stubborn attitude." - Anonymous

"It (pedowar) was specifically regarding political speech. Of course some of the people who posted on the board were pedophiles, but it was also a great ministry opportunity which you destroyed." - Anonymous

"I have not observed Jamon to make any claim to be a pedophile, but only to be an activist for so-called 'childrens' rights'." - Anonymous

"The fact that you are linking to his address information on your blog suggests that you are trying to incite physical violence against him." - Anonymous

"The Constitution doesn't promise privacy to anybody so people should never say or do anything that they don't want to be public." - Anonymous

[Taken from core.onion on the anonymous Tor network.]
"That's right, we need a special Internet now just to be able to have free speech. God bless the USA." - Anonymous

"This has nothing to do with child exploitation, it is a free speech issue. The simple fact is that there is nowhere to speak about laws related to protecting children, even if the illegal scientific research proves they do more harm than good." - Anonymous

"This is not over ladies and gentlemen, it is just being driven further underground, where more dangerous strategies can brew." - Anonymous

""Pedos" have more to lose. You don't have to worry about an angry pitchfork-wielding lynch mob showing up at your place. "Mr. Pedowar" is taking more of a risk than you are. Kudos to him." - Anonymous

[On raising my child in the Christian belief]
"Dear Zeus, stop indoctrinating her with your Christian myths, you're not even giving her a chance to decide for herself if she believes that rot.
It's probably not your fault that you believe it, your parents probably indoctrinated you, too. Don't inflict the same abuse on your daughter. Let her grow up and make up her own mind.
(Although to be honest, I'd have to laugh if you did that and she became a Muslim or something. Or worse - An ATHEIST, oh noes!)" - Anonymous

"I'd like to take this opportunity to voice my disgust at people who don't believe *discussion* of pedophilia to be valid free speech." - Anonymous

"You complain about Softlayer providing your contact details to the account holder of the server you complained about, resulting in it being shut down. You don't think he has the right to face his accuser?" - Anonymous

"So, he posted your address on the Internet. Oh well, information wants to be free, yo." - Anonymous

[Speaking about me]
"This person is an idiot and is just trying to stir up a witch-hunt bandwagon. GTFO [Get the fuck off] the internet until you realize that once you put your private pictures and video ONLINE, that it's open to anyone in the world to do whatever they want with it. Jamon: Considering what this tool is trying to stir up against you, I admire how you've handled your postings in defense of yourself." - Anonymous

"This guy's nuts. His daughter is too ugly to be pedobait." - Anonymous

"Sure your daughter is cute, most girls are. But to be frank she's no Dakota Fanning." - Anonymous

If you believe these quotes are taken out of context, I encourage you to check. With the exception of one quote, all can be found in one of three spots: 1) The comments section of my blog during the previous two postings; 2) On here -; or 3) On here -

One quote, the first in this list, is taken from a comment that is not posted. It was submitted as a comment to my blog by Jamon [Mr. Pedowar] using his real name. I have it, but I'm not posting it. Mr. Pedowar lost all of his rights on my blog by refusing my request to never again post information about my child. Call me a censor if you wish. I'll gladly accept the title in this case. The alternate title would be that of prisoner #3994838485 and would have had my children visiting me in prison.

One Final Note:
I've promised in my past two posts that I'm going to publish the email conversation between Softlayer Technologies and Mr. Pedowar. Well, I'm not publishing that just yet. You can probably find it roaming around the ether in an edited form if you look hard enough. But I'm holding on to my complete, unedited copy. I think I'm going to be needing it soon, and I can't tip my hat with everything that I have.

My first post in this series has reached about 5000 unique users according to the statistics that track my blog. I've also received an offer to be interviewed on a nationally syndicated radio talk show. In the big click picture, my unique users don't add up to much; these posts are more like microscopic fluid particulate from the viral sneeze of Chocolate Rain or a dust mite underfoot at the Evolution of Dance. I don't care. I really don't care. I believe in my small view of the world that I've affected change in a positive way or maybe helped educate a parent to think twice before posting photos or video. I'm used to people not looking at my blog. I blog because I can. It's fun to get hits, but it's more fun to post things that are important to me. One of those things has been taken away because someone felt the need to involve my child in a way that I do not see fit.

IT'S MY BLOG. If you want to use part of it, ask me. If you want to take without asking, don't bitch about the consequences. Also, let me make one thing perfectly clear: LEAVE MY FAMILY OUT OF IT. Through the grace of the Lord, Mr. Pedowar, you have escaped without consequence other than your Website(s) being temporarily shut down. You really should thank God for that. More grace will follow if you believe.

And while it's on my mind Mr. Pedowar, you really should think about cleaning up that two-door garage of yours. It's a great space. You know what I'm talking about, the one behind your house with 10 windows on left side and 18 on the other. Are all 18 of those windows missing? And exactly how high is all that stuff piled on the left? Just a few more home improvement tips. I think your house would look a lot better if you cut down the two trees covering the front and then trimmed the one on the left. It as to be awfully dark in there with all those trees covering your windows. And you should really protect that deck with a coat of stain. Harsh winters can really take a toll on decking.

And with that, the pedophile portfolio is officially closed...until it needs to be reopened.

Pedophiles, Supporters Supply Metaphorical Rope for Lynching

Is it a flimflam, a ruse maybe, played within the greater order of the pedophile? Am I being handed the opportunity to hang myself so that the damper of the child-lusting flame may once again open? Or maybe, just maybe, sociopathic reasoning isn't the sharpest tool in the underground shed.

I received two comments yesterday on my previous story - A Pedophile is Exploiting My Child. One was anonymous. One was signed, dated, and timestamped by Mr. Pedowar himself. As far as I'm concerned, Mr. Pedowar lost any right of access to me by his refusal to delete my child's image from his Website. Censorship? You betcha. Those with children understand. For those supporting pedophilia, step up to the mic, state your real name and speak your piece. Cowardliness and hidden has never and will never affect change.

However, I'm allowing Mr. Anonymous his time in the spotlight. It's not because I feel any need to defend myself against empty statements. There is no need. No one would be the wiser if I simply hit the delete button. I'm doing it to educate parents about the skewed mindset of predators. The following is the unedited comment of Mr. Anonymous and my rebuttal.

Mr. A: The site you're talking about was only a discussion board and was primarily focused on the absurd media and legal hype that has been created around an artificially inflated problem. IT WAS SPECIFICALLY REGARDING POLITICAL SPEECH.
WBR: Issues do get hyped by the media. I agree. This particular genera and the "legal hype" you mentioned, it's not really something I follow. The claim of the witch hunt [sic] being artificially inflated, show me statistical analysis of arrests v. convictions and matched against local, state, and federal law. Otherwise, your claim carries no weight. As for free speech, I'm in. See previous stated qualifications for stepping up to the mic in order to affect change. Or you can stay hidden, feel repressed, and lash out secretly against those who have the courage to turn the light on when they speak.

Of course some of the people who posted on the board were pedophiles, but it was also a great ministry opportunity which you destroyed.
Without being accusatory, I'm assuming by your statement that you know more about and/or the patronage of more than I do. By your admission, some of the clientele were indeed pedophiles. A photo of my child and the subsequent written dissection of the video from which the photo was stolen was on the pedowar Website. This website is known (at least by you) as a place where pedophiles visit and post opinions/editorials/testimonials/etc. I do not approve of my child's photo being on a website with such content. The image was taken from me without my permission. I wanted it removed. Subsequently, I did what I thought was best for my child and made my case to the home of, Softlayer Technologies. I did not remove I do not have that authority. One must assume that would not have been taken down without proper authority and for specific reason. That reason is clearly defined in the Softlayer Technology Acceptable Use Policy. More specific reason was conveyed in an email exchange between Mr. Pedowar and Softlayer Technologies. I fully intend on publishing this entire exchange in due time.

I have not observed Jamon to make any claim to be a pedophile, but only to be an activist for so-called "childrens' rights". I consider his beliefs on the subject to be fundamentally flawed, but again you have shut down all discussion.
Rights never needs to be surrounded by quotation marks. All people have rights. Start by researching the Bill of Rights. These rights include free speech. I love free speech. But don't stop there, keep reading. As Americans we have a lot of rights. Children, however, must be protected because they cannot protect themselves. They only understand what they have the ability to understand at any given age. This duty is required by law and is the responsibility of the parents. Now, on the subject of Mr. Pedowar's beliefs, we've found some common ground. But please remember, I did not shut down Pedowar. Softlayer Technologies and Mr. Pedowar at no time have ever had to abide by my authority.

Why are you posting videos of your child on the internet anyway?
There are laws against child pornography and pedophilia. There are no laws against what I did. There are copyright laws against using intellectual and/or artistic property without permission. It was the choice of Mr. Pedowar to violate this law and steal my property. Never did he ask. Had he asked, I would have refused. It was also his choice to decline when I requested that he never again publish my images.

Worse yet, I'm told they include you discussing "butts" with her and acting as if it were something cute.
Worse yet, the video about which you speak as heresy is embedded within the blog on which you are commenting. The audio and video are completely in tact. At the very least, please be an informed dissenter. I can send you a DVD if you wish? Simply give me you name and address. As for the word, butt, it's a funny word to a four-year-old. So is toot.

Furthermore, you have an actual picture of a naked child on your site here: (photo_name_edited).jpg. Why would you consider any of this appropriate to make public? Does your daughter agree with this?
C'mon dude, we're not talking about Robert Maplethorpe here. I do, however, find it interesting that you haven't watched the video about which you are commenting but you certainly found that picture. If you believe my image violates laws governing pornography or pedophilia, affect change. As for my child's opinion, discussions between my family are none of your business. One last thing, if you have already stolen this photo from me, I request that you delete this image immediately. It is mine and you don't have permission to use or copy it. This is clearly stated at the bottom of every page within my blog.

The fact that you are linking to his address information on your blog suggests that you are trying to incite physical violence against him.
I challenge anyone to show me one word, one phrase, one sentence that mentions or even suggests physical violence. I made a call to action in the video, the one you didn't watch, to voice complaints to Softlayer Technologies. I did this because they gave Mr. Pedowar my name, address, phone number, and email. Mr. Pedowar subsequently posted my contact information in the pages of a location/network known to be frequented by pedophiles. Within the same post, Mr. Pedowar mocked my intelligence and religious beliefs among his peers by boasting, "He has no idea we know everything about him. He's a not too bright Christian." Furthermore, Mr. Pedowar continues to be a client of Softlayer Technologies even after they took his sites down. Again, this proof was found within an email exchange between Mr. Pedowar and Softlayer Technologies. Mr. Pedowar posted this information at the same time that he felt the need to publish my contact information.

This is exactly the problem with the lack of privacy on the internet. There is no free speech when it can be met with mob violence.
I cannot dispute your belief. It's yours, which makes it inherently correct to you. I am one man, not a mob. I have threatened no one with violence. Write, not fight.

Until a new forum turns up, I can do nothing about Jamon and the "childrens' rights" movement, but I suggest you "be a man" and take down all these videos and pictures that put your daughter in a public spotlight, and remove your implied call to violence.
It just breaks my heart to hear your woes about not being able to support Mr. Pedowar, a man whose beliefs you view as "fundamentally flawed". I do appreciate your suggestion to "be a man". So let me think here. What have you taught me about being a man? 1) To be a man I must ride the fence of fundamentally flawed beliefs; 2) I must accuse without knowing all of the facts even though the facts are placed directly in front of me; and 3) I must misconstrue a link to and instead give it an exaggerated title such as an "implied call to violence".

Maybe someday your daughter will forgive you.
Because I raise my child in The Word of the Lord, someday she WILL be able to forgive you.

In all reality, it matters not the depth of questions or breadth of response. Integrity and truth are most important. To a man, a real man, these two qualities are what pre-pubescent youth is to a pedophile. A real man craves integrity and truth. He understands that these qualities define who he is and who he will become. Truth and integrity live here, in my house, without concern for hidden networks or clandestine trading of disgusting media.

Opinion is mine to do with as I please. My facts, however, are backed up by written statements, foul comments, and clandestine email viruses hurled at me throughout the past week. These things are done to me because I choose to defend my family from pornography and pedophilia. Mr. Pedowar provoked me by stealing my image and posting it as he deemed necessary regardless of consequence from his actions or the implications to my family. Softlayer Technologies provided someone for whom they believe is a purveyor of pedophilia with my contact information regardless of the consequences to my family.

Here is what I don't understand. Every strand of this fiber-ladden story is willfully provided to me through mostly anonymous correspondence. From those strands I am fashioning a fine piece of hand-crafted rope. I will graciously give this gift to the protectors of pedophilia so that they may then hang themselves. If you don't understand metaphor, allow me to spell it out for you; if what you do is against the law, keep your mouths shut. If you are caught, be a man and accept your consequences. At the very least, make recompense.

All I asked of Mr. Pedowar was to present to me in writing that he would take down the photo of my child and any references to her as well as promising not to invade my home again. As for Softlayer Technologies, I asked them to call me.

Mr. Pedowar refused.

Softlayer Technologies did not call.

A Pedophile Is Exploiting My Child

It was an odd Website name. It appeared in my statistics as one hit at first. I started investigating when the hits became ten. I nearly puked when I discovered that an image of my four-year-old little girl was on a Website catering to pedophiles.

I found his name and address. He's proud of what he does. He likes the attention because he feels he is doing do a service to this country by defending the first amendment.

I made a complaint to the business from where he rents server space. The business is Softlayer Technologies. Within hours the site was down. I was proud of myself for doing what was right. I was proud of Softlayer Technologies for doing what was right. Things aren't always as they seem, but more on that later.

I did feel, however, that I owed the owner of the Website,, an explanation as to why I made the complaint. Mistake.

I caught up with him in a chat site after searching his name, the name of his Website, and a few other terms. I knew it was him because the specific topic was about the Website being shut down. I wrote an open letter of sorts explaining why I did what I did.

I knew it was only a matter of time before his site was up and running again. I asked him to be a man, prove that he "cares deeply about me", and take all mention of my family off his site. Read it all here. It's completely safe. It's not a pedo or porn site. It's just text.

I was certainly not satisfied with his refusal, so I took a dive into the underbelly of the Internet. I thank God that I was able to get some information, unbelievable information, without having to see any disgusting images. Some of the titles were enough to again make me sick to my stomach.

I found that Mr. Pedowar is all about displaying as much information as he possibly can. For all intents and purposes, he was bragging about me. This quote from him was taken from one of those underground pedophile sites. "He has no idea we know everything about him. He's a not too bright Christian."

Huh? How could he have all of my information?

Why? Because Softlayer Technologies provided him with my name, address, phone number, and email address.

I have two children.

Softlayer Technologies took down Mr. Pedowar's website because they believe that the content within is in violation of the law and/or their "zero tolerance policy". However, they gave my contact information to him.

Mr. Pedowar subsequently posted my contact information for all pedophiles to see on these underground pedophile Websites.

Watch the video. It's brief, and it will explain some of the additional details. By the way, Softlayer Technologies continues to provide this purveyor of pedophilia with service.
