Hunter Moore, Asshole. Hunter Moore, Asshole.

Revenge porn site ‘Is Anyone Up’ operator Hunter Moore was finally sentenced to two and half years in prison on Wednesday. Yay! He’s also due to pay a $2,000 fine. Both amounts do seem rather small considering how large a jerk he is, and just how many lives he has ruined.

Moore tried to argue that the site was ‘user generated’ when in fact he and his cohorts had been hacking email accounts to get hold of intimate imagery they would then upload as content. Campaigners, such as mother of victim Charlotte Laws, reckon the ruling is far too soft for the crimes committed, but in the ever-long slog against this sort of disturbing online misogyny the outcome of the case is at least setting a precedent. In April, Kevin Bollaert – another revenge porn site owner – was given an 18 year jail sentence, and a much bigger $15,000 fine. It would seem the severity of revenge porn crimes is being recognised at long last.

Enjoy jail, creep.
