Women file suit against “revenge porn” website

Dozens of Women Join ‘Revenge Porn’ Class Action Lawsuit Against Texxxan.com. Although Texxxan.com is not currently live, these women are seeking revenge on a sliver of x-rated cyberspace known as “revenge porn,” where people post explicit photos of their exes out of spite.

Another revenge porn website called IsAnyoneUp.com was launched by Hunter Moore, 26, as a place for “public humiliation.” On the site, users could upload sexually explicit photos and videos without a victim’s permission, and include screen grabs of Facebook accounts and links to Twitter accounts. A section on the website also allowed people to comment on the photos and videos. In an interview with Neil Karlinsky on ABC NIGHTLINE, Moore referred to himself as a “professional life-ruiner.” Moore has since sold his site to the owner of Bullyville.com, who also owns CheaterVille.com.

Good for those involved in the class action. Let the fight back against these violating sites begin.

You can find a short audio interview with Moore in the online archives of On the Media, done by Robert Garfield. Something interesting and also riling was his assumption of a sort of ingenuous persona at certain points.

I certainly hope this Texxxan thing pays through the nose.

Donna, thank you for posting this article and I hope that there’s a stern judgement for the plaintiffs. Sadly, any judgement will likely be bankrupted away.

The lesson to this whole ugly, nasty, and vicious thing is this: under no circumstances should ANYONE allow a partner to record shared intimacy, video or photographic. Yeah, at the time, it might seem exciting and erotic, but it can really, REALLY come back to bite someone in their backside.

If physical intimacy needs to be “recorded,” then there’s something “wrong” at the outset. A truly intimate relationship doesn’t require actions that could, in the future, present a “risk” to the people involved.

I’ve been told never to write anything you would not want on the front page of tomorrow’s newspaper….and that iis doubly good advice when it comes to having video or photographs made.

I can say I HAVE WRITTEN things I wish I hadn’t but we don’t always make wise decisions about that sort of thing.

The problem is that these young people don’t THINK about “worst case” in what would happen iif these videos were made public.

The scums who use them for revenge though should be stopped but I’m liike Truthy, I figure they will bankrupt out of paying anything.

There need to be more horror stories circulated a la “she (or he) agreed to it and later said she didn’t know about it, and now I have been charged with a felony… it’s been a nightmare, I’m innocent…” <– Another reason not to make video or sexts, ever, even with consent.

This just bolsters my opinion that social networking sites like FaceBook and MySpace and this new batch of them, are just playgrounds for ‘spaths, stalkers, and cyber-bullies.

Once something ugly or intrusive or supposedly personal and private is posted on the Internet, its there forever.

Does anyone really want pics of themselves proudly displaying their vaginal tattoo or their penis-piercing that were sent 5 years ago to college friends, to be distributed at the big client meeting next week along with the agenda notes? (by that spathy co-worker who wants your job?)

I think its much safer to only correspond with people you know personally via e-mail and only correspond with people you don’t know personally via private sites, blogs and groups like this one where your real name can safely remain anonymous.

The Internet is a two-edged sword. On the one hand it allows us to connect with people from around the world who share our interests and concerns, and yet the Internet can be a very real threat to our privacy.

But I’m kind of cautious anyway; even a touch paranoid, I guess. I was cyber-stalked for three years. So, take what I say about the Internet with a grain of salt, so to speak.

And never post pictures that show both your genitalia and your face, on the internet. Not a good idea.

People have to take extra care on social networks, they are a good thing all in all you just need to be very cautious!!! This SIC individual takes the cake, he is beyond bully!! And he still has accounts on every social site despite the fact he was shut down, I just reported his FB page!!!! SIC SIC SIC He is so blatantly cocky I was shocked and not much shocks me these days!!!! WHEW Karma is gonna be ROUGH ON HIM!!

We need to stand up to our bullies. I currently have a civil lawsuit against my ex husband for setting up a website using my name as the domain name and posting very explicit pictures of me.

This should be made law where we have support as some people cannot fight back as they do not have the money to hire an attorney.

So..? Whats wrong with such kind of porn sites..?
