    Re: internet predator?

    An internet predator is a person who uses the internet to prey on other people, usually young teens. This person wants to victimize these teens or children. They will begin by befriending them and then arrange meetings or find other ways to interact with them. Usually it is to arrange a sexual encounter with a child. All parents are concerned with this in the US.

    McCain is talking about what laws he would suggest if he gets to be president.

    More than merely "take advantage". It is deliberately seeking out a victim and then making use of that victim for your own satisfaction.
