    *In general, use the term RSO rather than "SO." For unregistered sex offenders, use description that indicates their status. For unconvicted offenders, use "alleged." For convicted sex offenders who no longer must register (e.g. expiration of registration period), use "former registered sex offender." For those who've never had to register due to state law preclusions, and all others convicted in a court of law, use "convicted sex offenders." The term "predator" may also be used when appropriate in a legal sense, or colloquially, for any reference to a sex offender.

    What is IANAL?
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
