    • I think there has been enough hyperbole, sarcasm and thinly veiled personal attacks recently. Perhaps everyone who has posted in the last 24 hours should take the weekend off. Enjoy your family, go for a hike. Do something else besides post on this or related threads.  Perhaps after the weekend folks could return to discuss ideas and not cast aspersions at each other. We can disagree without being disagreeable.  I will be the first to take my own advice...
    • Current online YPT = 72 minutes. If people cannot even be bothered to sit and watch 72 minutes, SELF PACED, in order to just have a basic awareness of what YP is and why BSA needs it, then BSA doesn't need them.
    • Look, if we're not willing to spend a couple hours a year to help reduce the incidence of child rape, then the organization doesn't need to survive.  That's a tiny price to pay to save someone a lifetime of hurt. This wouldn't even be a big deal.  Set up a Saturday morning session in person or whatever.  If folks aren't willing to set aside two or four hours on a Saturday to help solve this problem, then maybe they don't need to set aside their Monday nights to come to Scout meetings either. It astonishes me that people complain about something as important as YPT, considering how little time it requires in its current incarnation.
    • Most pedophiles and ephebophiles have no prior record as they often get long prison sentences and they are screened out. You defined the problem.  Although as another poster said, youth on youth is now the larger problem as youth protection has curbed much of the adult on youth problems.
    • Another thought I have...since we know that background checks do not screen out 100% of the pedophiles and the BSA knows this fact also, is the BSA still liable for abuse that leaked in from an imperfect background check system? And if the BSA is still liable, then how is it possible to for the organization to eliminate 100% of the abuse, short of ending scouting?
