IsAnyoneUp.com had one simple, brilliantly malicious premise: submit completely naked pictures of your ex (or anyone you dislike), completely anonymously. The ultimate Internet revenge, viewed by a quarter of a million people every day. It shut down. Now it’s back.
The site, which gleaned x-rated selfies from Facebook and private texts, eventually bowed to legal pressure and the shouts of cyber-bullying. But its creator, Hunter Moore, just launched a new site, and it looks like the baron of revenge porn sleaze is unrepentant. If anything, he’s excited to be back:
My name is Hunter Moore and I created Is Anyone Up.com when I was 24 years old. I was broke and sitting on my parents couch in Sacramento, California with -$120 in my bank account. It was for me and my friends to post pictures of girls we were fucking at the time & somehow someone found it and it became what it was. I sold it because i hated what the media turned it into and it could never be what i wanted it to be and always wanted to troll the lame and boring fad that soccer moms love and thats “bullying”. We had too many hackers too much overhead and way too many legal problems. This time I am doing it right. We are going to start off by launching with all the old IAU content and all new content. The submission page has only been up for five full days and we’ve done over 7thousand submission within that time. I am creating something that will question if you will ever want to have kids. I am making something very scary but yet fun. If you remember the old IAU you will have it back but with a mobile APP to go along with it and a very strong social networking site of our community. I hope you are all as excited as i am.
The submission page says it all: this is streamlined porn terrorism. You can submit up to ten shots of your victim at once, and HunterMoore.tv asks that you include a link to the person’s Facebook profile. Expect this to temporarily ruin many social lives once it opens its doors to jilted lovers and sociopaths. [HunterMoore.tv via BetaBeat]
