Is Anyone Up? is about to go down.

Revenge porn pioneer Hunter Moore is out on bail after being indicted Thursday on 15 counts, including conspiracy, seven counts of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information, and seven counts of aggravated identity theft. 

Throughout those counts are a series of indictments against the use of his primary site, Is Anyone Up?, a website that facilitated revenge porn activity—the sharing of nude photos belonging to individuals who did not offer their consent to make such pictures public.

Moore, 27, was released to his parents after posting a $100,000 bond and being told that he is not to use the Internet between now and his trial, currently set for March in Los Angeles. Sacramento’s Fox 40 also reports that Moore will have to completely dismantle his website under the supervision of federal investigators. 

Moore’s rap sheet runs longer than a convoy. It was in 2010 that he opened Is Anyone Up? and immediately drew collective ire and scorn from proponents of human decency and fairness. But the site’s been protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and thus was given the chance to prevail.

By Nov. 2011, the site was receiving upwards of 30 million page views per month. It got shut down in April 2012, but revenge porn has charged on, tormenting the lives of those who never planned for it.
