|Dave Riegel is an "out" pedophile activist who spends a lot of time writing about pedophilia and infiltrating main-stream media Websites, spreading pedophile propaganda, with his group called the BoyLove Media Watch. He has also used the nick "Researcher" to complain at BoyChat about BoyLinks not being up, as he claimed he needed that for his "research."|
David Lee Riegel AKA Veridicus AKA Researcher uses his real name in most of his online dealings, but sometimes uses the alias Veridicus to post on news articles when he's involved with the activities of BoyLove Media Watch. He has also used the nick "Researcher" to complain at BoyChat about BoyLinks not being up, as he claimed he needed that for his "research."
He is an author on the subject of pedophilia and has been involved in many online pedophile organizations, including Safe Haven, Free Spirits Coalition. He seems to believe his ideals about "boylove" are superior to the rest of the pedophile community and has specifically said that he does not condone their organizations or activities; however, when reading his writings, it is hard to distinguish his thoughts from those of other pedophile activists. The goal is the same: to use Pedospeak and propaganda to try to make pedophilia more acceptable and to discuss ways to change the laws so that he can legally have sex with children.
His "studies" are pseudo-scientific in nature, and are very thinly veiled attempts at trying to "prove" that sex between adults and children is not harmful.
From his website on responsible "Boylove":
The investigation into this person is ongoing.
