LOS ANGELES — A notorious “revenge porn” website operator and another California man have been charged with stealing nude photos from hundreds of hacked email accounts and posting the images online.

Hunter Moore, 27, who has been dubbed by some media outlets as “the most hated man on the Internet,” was arrested Thursday at his home. FBI agents also arrested Charles Evens, 25, of the Studio City area of Los Angeles.

Evens pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court while Moore appeared in court in Sacramento but didn’t enter a plea, U.S. attorney’s spokesman Thom Mrozek said.

Both remained jailed.

Moral of the story: Don’t send nekkid pictures of yourself through email or post them on the internet.

“I just monetize people’s mistakes that they made, and it’s kind of a shady business. But if it wasn’t me, somebody else was going to do it,” he said.

Same could be said our Federal Reserve Bank.

> from the article:
“I just monetize people’s mistakes that they made, and it’s kind of a shady business. But if it wasn’t me, somebody else was going to do it,” he said.

In a 2012 interview on CNN’s “Dr. Drew” show, a woman who called in to the show chastised Moore for refusing requests to remove naked selfies of her daughter and alleged they came from a hacked account.

“I’m sure she sent the pictures to a million different guys and just ended up on my site just like everybody else,” Moore said, although he added that he didn’t want to hurt her daughter.

“I’m sorry that your daughter was cyber-raped. But, I mean, now she’s educated on technology,” he added.

I’m surprised he’s not a high level appointee on Obama’s staff with an attitude and mentality like that.

I can't for the life of me understand why anybody would put a picture of themselves nude on the internet...unless you plan on making money off of it...then you know the consequences...

Certainly hacking email should be if it isn’t illegal but I know that my email is used by my provider to market stuff to me and the NSA looks at it. I’m not saying this guy is okay but I’m trying to see where the crime is. I think that the identity theft charges are bogus. If someone puts a naked photo out there on the internet, it seems to be that it’s public. What’s the expectation of privacy? If the ex friend scans a nude photo and puts it out there then he might be the criminal. But I still don’t see it as identity theft. It sort of feels like the defense against slander or libel, truth is a defense.

Never take a photo of yourself that you wouldn’t want the public to see.

I believe they are looking at extortion as people were forced to pay several hundred bucks to get the pictures taken down.

There is also some vague law about cyber bullying.

Plenty of “young” girls/women send nude pics taken by their phone to their boyfriend. Eventually they split up and the guy sends the pics to the revenge site.

A Rodney Dangerfield joke. “It was so bad, they wouldn’t even post my naked pictures.”

It’s one thing to post a pic of yourself on an open sight, or even a pay sight on the web. It’s a totally different matter if they go inside your email as they did with Sarah Palin and steal things they were not supposed to ever be privy to.

That is stealing and it is illegal. Just ask the college kid who was convicted by the federal government for hacking Palin’s email.

This guy is definately scum-of-the-earth. But I can’t have any sympathy either, for people so stupid as to be taking nude photos of themselves and transmitting them into cyberspace. Such a demented thing to do to begin with.

Not an issue for me --- there isn't a computer monitor big enough for any nekkid selfies I might have taken in my youth .....

While clearly this guy isn’t an upstanding human being, when I read the headline I expected it to read how 0bama has been thrown in cuffs and arrested for treason.

I wish I could remember where I read it, but some of the pics were photoshopped (meaning the woman involved never posed nude at all), and that people who used this site were tracking down the women and sending pics to their employers, stalking them, and destroying their lives in general.

Women who post nude or semi-nude photos of themselves online are just begging to be exploited. It’s called FaceBook for a reason. You’re supposed to post images of your FACE, not a split-beaver shot. Dumbasses.
