Woman shocked over details on ‘revenge porn’ site

The BBC emailed the website’s operators, and they replied: “All posts to our services are posted by our anonymous users around the world not by [website name].

“We carry out daily active moderation and have clear rules on what is allowed to be posted, we also offer removal forms in the rare cases for content that is deemed illegal or breaks copyright rules.

“As we have a global audience that totals 28 million users a year across our networks, we strive to ensure that any posts that do break the rules get removed in a timely manner.”

Det Insp Jim Forster from Cleveland Police said: “The offence

relates to the person that does the sharing of the images, we can arrest that person, they can be dealt with and they can get up to two years in prison.”

He said if a case involved a big company such as Facebook or Snapchat they would generally comply with requests to take material down, but lesser-known websites, or ones run by criminals, could tend to ignore the police.

“It’s unlikely we’d be able who trace who owns the website if it’s foreign based,” he said. “The reality is getting those images removed is nigh-on impossible.”
