Which is like an assassin blaming the rifle manufacturer…

from www.nydailynews.com – In some cases, revenge is a dish better served hot.

At least it is for ex-boyfriends and sordid bullies who forward explicit photos of women they’ve received or otherwise found, to “revenge porn” sites.

And the curators of these sites? They couldn’t care less.

“We’re not doing anything, not trying to hurt them, we’re not out for revenge or any sort of malicious thing,” says Colorado Springs’ Craig Brittain [pictured], who has got 700 explicit photos on his IsAnybodyDown.com.

“If it comes down to it, then yeah… We’re out to make a buck.”

He’s even listed it on his LinkedIn profile.

Brittain got the idea from the site IsAnybodyUp, begun by Hunter Moore, named the “Most Hated Man on the Internet” by Rolling Stone. Moore has sold his revenge porn site, but is planning on launching another soon.

“Why should I care?” Moore told BetaBeat. “It’s not my life. It’s literally just a business. It’s stupid not to monetize it.”

The money-makers sell ads to make dough off the misery of others. Brittain apparently makes about $3,000 every month from advertisements on his site.

Brittain claims that he is protected by the Communications Decency Act, a law that exempts him from liability as long as his content is submitted by other people, CBS4 reports.

“I call it entertainment,” Brittain told CBS4.

Tell that to the women who find their private ‘naughty photos’ going viral on the web.

One woman, identified only as Caitlin, said she never intended for her pics to go public.

“Those were my personal photos reserved for me privately and somehow they were taken and now they are all over the Internet for anyone to see. It’s an invasion of privacy and it’s disgusting,” Caitlin told CBS4.

Earlier this year, Texas lawyer John Morgan filed a lawsuit on behalf of several women who found their photos on the revenge porn site Texxxan.com. Morgan said that the site’s administrator has been using a false name–“James Smith.”

“He made some pretty outrageous comments,” Morgan told the New York Daily News. “First of all, he thinks the women deserve it. And second, he thinks posting these types of photos prevents violence against women. That’s what he claims.”

“Smith” spoke with Anderson Cooper during an interview. Using a voice distorter, he argued that the women’s boyfriends are the ones responsible for causing pain.

“It’s called revenge porn for a reason,” said “Smith.” “It’s not a happy bunnies playing website, it’s a revenge porn website.”

Holly Toups, whose photos have been featured on Texxxan.com, called Smith a coward after he refused to take down her photos.

“He’s hiding his identity, his name, his face, but he will blast ours? He’s a coward,” Toups said on Anderson Live.

Although Texxxan.com is now offline, Morgan is still pursuing his case.

As news about the lawsuit spread, Morgan received numerous calls from women across the country who claimed they were also victims of revenge porn sites. At first, 17 women were named in the suit. Now, Morgan says that number is around 30.

“I want to uncover them [the webmasters] and make them public and try to obtain compensation for my clients for what they’ve been through,” he said.

GoDaddy.com, which hosts Texxxan.com, is also named as a defendent in the suit. Morgan is working with GoDaddy.com to determine James Smith’s true identity.

A representative from GoDaddy told the News that the company doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
