I think it would be useful to create a model that tries to predict whether a youtube comment is paedophilic - maybe the model should also take into account the channel name/description/front image.

It's not an easy task but at the moment I'm just looking for data.

I know it's a sensitive topic - but does anyone know of a dataset out there with the characteristics I need?
