Craig Brittain hasn't shut down his controversial revenge porn website IsAnybodyDown so much as he's diverted his attention onto new schemes. 

The reviled Web personality has been notorious in these past few months for allegedly devising an extortion scheme that forced victims of revenge porn—a term designed to classify pornographic pictures of of individuals who had not given website owners proper consent to publish the images—to pay $250 to a purported third-party attorney known as the Takedown Hammer to have their photos removed. He purchased two new domain names yesterday: ObamaNudes.com and ObamaNudes.net.

As reported by BetaBeat, the purchases came just a few hours after Brittain took to Twitter to announce that he would be shutting down IsAnybodyDown for "personal feelings." The names of the two domains may be in reference to Brittain's February interview with Colorado's CBS4 TV, in which he said that Obama was to blame for his decision to profit off the revenge porn site.

"The realization that my life is empty without love and friendship is really the biggest motivating factor behind the change," he wrote. "It isn't so much that I had a change of heart … I'm just lonely."

Considering the purchase of the aforementioned domains, that might be a confession to consume with a brain of salt. 

Brittain attracted a wild horde of critics and skeptics during the half year in which IsAnybodyDown it has been operating. The revenge porn site was modeled much like Hunter Moore's IsAnyoneUp in the sense that it relied on anonymous third-party contributions and found protection under the Communications Decency Act, which protects site owners from legal action based on what its users submit. Brittain was Public Enemy No. 1 against a regime of anti-bully advocates within the hacktivist collective Anonymous and many Internet rights activists. 

One of those activists, Loyola Law School graduate and California bar member Adam Steinbaugh, discovered recently that the Takedown Hammer has increased the site's photo removal rate from $250 to $300.

What's that rate hike mean for ObamaNudes.com and ObamaNudes.net? We wish we could tell you. Craig Brittain did not respond to the Daily Dot's request for comment.
