Plumpergeddon: Revenge Porn Done Right
I just caught a Vice article which covers the subject of revenge porn, a concept that could be applied to Plumpergeddon except I’m doing it on a righteous and morally justifiable INTERNET BATMAN tip, not as a final and potentially life destroying slap from someone who was once trusted and emotionally close.
So there you have it, I categorically stated I have never been “emotionally close” to old Plumps.
I didn’t really think much at the time about whether what I was going to do was legal, because, well, how could I not make use of all these lovely photos? From my job I roughly knew the laws surrounding copyright, so I knew I owned all of the images my laptop threw back at me. So what if there’s a bloke in them using my MacBook Pro to wank to plumper porn he paid for on my stolen debit card, just before rinsing it for £7,000 of other crap? Fair game, I think.
Given I chose not to seek legal advice, this part was interesting:
Franks said most revenge porn cases can’t be prosecuted in terms of photographic copyright, because, unless it’s a selfie, the copyright belongs to whoever took the photo or video — usually the same person who later blasts it all over the internet.
Usually, not always. Thanks for all the photos, Mr P!
Revenge porn when used maliciously (which arguably is nearly all cases) can have a clear psychological impact and in some cases ruin lives. Just like racism, homophobia and death threats delivered through the Internet, I think it’s imperative that the police and relevant authorities (oh hi, GCHQ!) evolve to deal with online crime and treat it, given the potential exposure, probably more seriously than if someone postered your area with sensitive images of your dangly bits.
Actually that was one idea we had early on, but the Internet turned out to be warmer/easier and it meant I could donate the blog’s ad money to charity instead of spending it on posters with Plumpy’s wank pout on them. Yup, that was actually an idea.
Anyways this was only meant to be a quick post to share a link, as a bonus there Plumps is up top, cracking one out to one of these lovely ladies seen below, hopefully Google won’t make me censor the photo again… I’ve still got dozens of these.
And again just for laughs, here’s PlumpyNyanCatLensFlare with one of his very own eBay threats overlaid in a lovely rainbow Comic Sans:
