The Telegraph said:



Michael Brutsch, 49, a married computer programmer for a financial services company, primarily managed two 'subreddits', a type of user-managed forum, titled 'Jailbait' and 'Creepshots'.


Under the pseudonym of Violentacrez, Brutsch presided over an "unending fountain" of images of scantily-clad underage girls taken from their Facebook profiles without their permission, as well as posting images and comments under the subreddits 'Misogyny' and 'Incest'.


He contends that he "never published anything illegal", and deleted any images of child pornography uploaded by other users.

Personally I think anything you post on a facebook account is fair game. It may be seedy to do so but you basically give up your privacy when you post it on facebook at least in my opinion.

the guy is a pig, but he is not doing anything illegal as far as i'm concerned. taking those pics from facebook is no different than taking any other image from the internet. the cat i use as my avatar was taken. i would venture to guess most of you have taken a shot of a person off the net and reposted it elsewhere, chances are you also addd a funny caption to at least one of them.
these young girls put their pics up. they are able to be copied and redistributed like any other image. so be it. the ******* shots are against the law though i think. also extremely gross.
trolling is not what this guy is doing.
edit to add:
the word "up skirt" is not allowed here unless i use a space??

I bet a few UM users held their breathe when they clicked click the link to this story, I know I did...  ;)

I was relieved to see it wasn't me and that it isn't even 'real' trolling.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

okay.... i thought a troll was different than that, thats just a perv pedophile


In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[3]extraneous, or off-topicmessages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[4] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[5] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted."

I hope anyone is aware of this but, every image you post on Facebook is owned by Facebook. I believe he was using those terms to get a high amount of hits. Though he isn't actually doing anything illegal at all.

I also wouldn't call him the biggest troll, let alone troll. I think the media labelling anyone on the Internet doing anything illegal as a "troll" is just a ploy for an excuse for authorities to increase their control over the internet. The place where they have the least control and they hate it.

How the heck would we know if someone is from the Anonymous group sending a message, since they remain anonymous?
Maybe the upper leadership(like with WikiLeaks) is known, I'm not sure.

So, someone I work with, his daughter ended up on Jailbait, her photo was submitted (not stolen) by someone she knew, who didn't like her.

While his daughter was over 18, the problem wasn't really the picture, the problem was the comments posted by users and the site manager himself. They bordered very dangerously on slander and they used her real name on the site. While it would have been costly to sue, or fight...  I suggested my co-worker have an attorney draft a threatening cease and desist letter and send it certified mail. He did that, and the picture came down the day the site managers received the certified letter, the comments came down as well.

The biggest probelm is that she has a very unusual name, she's the only one in the country (possibly the world) and that picture, on that site, with those comments were hurting her abilty to get work and get into the colleges she wanted to get into.... if you Googled her name... that site was the first search result returned.

Anonymous is decentralised. There is no upper leadership or any form of ranks. Just esteemed members who have done things to gain praise.

Anonymous is capable of much more than we are aware of. Cyber terrorism is underestimated, and overlooked when considering what this group is capable of.

Never said they weren't capable of doing much. I know there are some skilled hackers capable of getting into some pretty high level government systems.

I know girls my age who post raunchy-ish pictures of themselves on facebook. I know it's hormone city and everything, but anyone can take those pictures off, and do anything to them. Not a smart thing to do, in my opinion.
