Internet fame and Non-Consensual Porn; Stop Hunter Moore

revenge porn One of the most notorious internet pricks has to be Hunter Moore. The self made pariah came to fame when he set up a website called ‘Is anyone up ?’ Here bitter, vicious men and women could post videos and pictures of their exes engaging in sexual acts. The images are usually consensual at the time of their taking and then shared once the couple break up which I’m assuming would be on bad terms. This online activity has been called revenge porn. Not only did he republish pictures of the victims without their permission but he also attached their names, hometowns, and links to their social networking accounts.

Moore, who has since been dubbed The most hated man on the internet has been targeted by Hacktivist group Anonymous. The reason they decided to take him down was because Moore announced that he had plans to release the home addresses of’ people he didn’t like’ online. Attacking him was probably the worst move as this gave him more fame, he needs to be removed from the headlines and completely ignored. However, he does do damage and it was reported that a young girl took her own life as a result of the ridicule she experienced when her picture was released online. Moore views his revenge porn as a business and showed no remorse.

He seems to be a sociopath, wanting fame and notoriety even if it means he becomes absolutely despised in the process. He sold his original ‘Is anyone up ?’ website to an anti-bullying website in 2011, quoted as saying “I hated what the media turned it into and it could never be what I wanted it to be”.

Moore, during an interview with the BBC bragged that “This time I am doing it right. I am creating something that will question if you ever want to have kids”. This man obviously has problems and like many who have issues with relating to people, he finds it easier to make people hate him than to have to fail at making people like him. This makes it feel as though being hated is his own choice, on his terms and therefore he can feel in control.

He announced on his twitter page this year that he has been offered his own television show. He’s disgusting but the world can’t look away. His programme would probably get great ratings but unfortunately this attention is what keeps him going.

Moore was finally arrested last month y the FBI, charged with hacking into the personal email accounts of his victims to post their personal pictures online.
