    Revenge Porn Sites?

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —Facebook, Instagram and Flickr are all popular places for people who want the world to see their photos.

    However, there is also a dark side to the Internet: So-called revenge porn sites where private, explicit photos are shared.

    Graphic pictures on revenge porn sites are often uploaded by vindictive ex-boyfriends or girlfriends. Other victims have said their accounts were hacked.

    “Once it’s on the Internet, it’s basically there forever. It may be taken off the website, but what if someone puts it on their website? Because you know they can just right-click and save,” one victim told KCRA 3, afraid her pictures will never be taken down.

    Now, a California lawmaker is proposing a law to stop revenge porn and cyberbullying, as a direct response to a KCRA 3 investigation.

    State Sen. Anthony Cannella, R-Modesto, introduced SB 255 on Tuesday morning.

    “You brought it to my attention. I wasn’t familiar with the topic. And we did research. We came back to our policy staff and said, ‘Look at this. This is a problem. What’s the best way to remedy it?’” Cannella said.

    SB 255 would make it a misdemeanor to share electronic pictures of a sexual nature, intended to intimidate or bully without the consent of the person in those pictures. The violator also would be fined $1,000.

    No, it's a real thing. There are a few sleazebags who've been in the news the past couple years.

    http://www.villagevoice.com/2012-04-...-is-anyone-up/
    http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/...5/revenge-porn

    Now of course these sites are a drop in the bucket compared to as you say the fake ex-gf material - but they get plenty of pub as you'd imagine. And while they are total bottom-feeder fuckwads who should be shut down, I don't have much faith in a bunch of 72-year-old white dudes who's web expertise probably doesn't extend beyond email being able to properly legislate that. But what else is new.

    Both websites mentioned in each of those articles are now offline (isanyoneup.com and is anybodydown.com) are you aware of any other sites that has true revenge porn on it. I have never come across a site like this before with real exgf type content. I am curious to see one.

    I remember the owner of isanyoneup.com doing an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. It's a different culture geared more toward that emo scene where the girls have a much more liberating view of sexuality. Once the site was off I'm pretty sure a majority of the pics were consensual. Some of them were pretty funny though, 300 pound guy with no endowment. LOL.

    I've seen revenge happen in real time on sites like 4chan, they do facebook raids, and boyfriends show ex's and girlfriends some of which are ungodly nice.

    I dunno man, it had its beginnings with a sort of faux hipster-ish clique but I don't see that subculture as being magically much more 'liberated' than the masses. And the tone of IAU was clearly nonconsensual, from plastering personal & contact info of the girls in galleries to the overall vindictive comments & whatnot. There were occasional intentional submissions by girls, but it was pretty clear the majority weren't.

    Why people put effort into being such sleazebags is beyond me. Life is too short to go around being a dickhead for no good reason - in Moore's case money was a motivator, but everyone else submitting to that site were assholes just for the hell of it.

    I guess I don't surf the net as much as I use to and missed these sites. The only ones I were familiar with were the exgf type sites with stock content.
