Revenge Porn Blogger Wants To Be Forgiven — Is He Really Sorry?

The owner of a revenge porn blog is upset about people using his photos without permission on the internet, but he doesn’t appear to be getting any sympathy. Craig Brittain, the owner of the blog IsAnybodyDown, once profited off the invasion of privacy of multiple people in a pornography trend that exploits both men and women without their consent. Jezebel reports that Brittain wants Google to remove search results that point to his past behavior and participation in the widely-hated porn trend.

The Federal Trade Commission has slapped him down after his behavior attracted their attention, but he’s not going down without a fight. Now he wants his identity to be forgiven, and he doesn’t want to be tied to his actions any longer. That means he is using any legal means he can to try to stop Google search results of his name and activity from showing up. Of course, Google has so far ignored the past 23 requests made by the internet porn troll. One of those requests was for Google to stop the unauthorized use of his photos in search results. Keep in mind that he made over $3,000 a month in advertisement on his old blog doing that very thing to countless women.

Back when Brittain’s revenge porn site was operational, the man would scour internet chat rooms and message boards for women who were willing to share private photos with him. However, he would chat with these women under reportedly fraudulent means by pretending to be a woman. Once he’d get the women to show him their most intimate moments, he would then publish them on his website where he would make web traffic revenue based on SEO. Apparently, Craig Brittain believes that his photos are off limits, but not the dozens of women’s private photos that he posted on his blog.

CBS News outed Brittain during an investigative report in 2013, by revealing that the Colorado-based blogger was behind at least one fake identity. An identity claiming to be a woman named Jess Davis reportedly tricked a woman into sending her photos, which later ended up on Brittain’s blog. CBS News found that the emails sent by Jess Davis came from the same IP address and home where Craig Brittain resided during the same span of time.

As of this year, the blog that once hosted Brittain’s revenge porn enterprise is all but scrubbed of any evidence of the past. What remains is a post made at the end of January in which Craig R. Brittain begs for forgiveness for what he has done. He believes that he deserves a second chance to be removed from his past behavior, but does he really deserve it?
