Phillip John Eide
Phillip John Eide - "Xavier von Erck" - is the self-styled leader of Portland based cyber-vigilante organisation Perverted Justice.
- This is taken from an Instant Message conversation involving a 16yo girl and Phillip John Eide/Xavier Von Erck of Perverted Justice. I have copied it from http://xavier-pj.blogspot.com
- Ellavoir (5:44:29 PM): Hi I want to send you a voice clip (or give me somebody to call) so I can prove I’mr eally sixteen? I emailed you. Please don’t block me — I’d like you to really hear my voice, and if you really want to help minors, don’t you want to find out who I am so you can “protect” me?
- XavierVE1 (5:45:08 PM): My goal is not to protect minors. It’s to go after pedophiles. And believe me, I know the “throw the voice to sound young” trick better than anyone. We’ve perfected it. Run along now.
- Ellavoir (5:46:23 PM): what do you mean? Don’t you go after pedophiles specifically to protect kids? otherwise there’s no point. also, you’re right — i’m sure sounding young isn’t that hard.

- XavierVE1 (5:46:49 PM): No, it’s because pedophiles are disgusting people. Like you. That’s why we go after them. Protecting kids is just a side benefit.
- XavierVE1 (5:46:56 PM): Now begone to blockville with you.

- Xavier Von Erck’s goal is not to protect children from predators; he simply hates paedophiles and uses “child protection” as an excuse for his actions. 
Eide's relationship with the media is rather simple; he seems able to cope when his "expertise" is held in high regard by the staff involved. For a contrary example, see this video.
