Revenge Porn you can report it

Post by Guest » Mon Jul 27, 2015 1:25 am

Jacqueline Beauchere, Microsoft‘s Chief Online Safety Officer, has announced on a blog post last Wednesday that Microsoft “will remove links to photos and videos from search results in Bing, and remove access to the content itself when shared on OneDrive or Xbox Live, when we are notified by the victim”

From the blog of a firm that I trust and I use.

And from a true blue friend ........ thanks S :-)

I was not familiar with this problem and now that I am, I would like to share it with you and hope that it helps
Some good news are hard to come by, but when they do it should be shared .......... oh yeah plenty of Non GMO products, showing up, on the shelves and at good prices :)

Be safe

Thank you!

Example traffic to my vanilla site from search engines: Google=67%, Baidu=24%, Yandex=4%, Bing=2%, Yahoo=1%, etc.

So "Microsoft will remove links to xxx from search results in Bing."   Oooh ... Oww ... Ouch ...   That will surely stop them.

First, I see the "problem" of revenge porn the same as the Ashley Madison hack - if you don't want it shared with the world don't do it. You might think it is between the two of you now but that can change quickly. This "problem" is better stopped with common sense than reporting it.

Second, I seriously doubt that most people are searching for revenge porn using Bing, or Google, or any other search engine. There certainly search for porn with them but revenge porn seems more of a niche market. I imagine there are known sites for uploading, sharing , and viewing it. While I agree with Microsoft's policy I don't think it will have any impact on revenge porn. Just as kids know how to get around firewalls and filters today people will find a way around it if EVERY search engine takes this approach.

No question that it's a good start. Unfortunately, some types of victims are understandably unwilling to report the perps.

This reply coming from a person that knows law and is wise, is a good omen :-)

Maybe a precedent could be made the moment someone comes forward and it will much easier, for others to demand the removal of such material

I hear you and I agree that common sense should be the rule, but

Revenge porn is sexually explicit media that is distributed without the consent of the individual(s) involved.[1] In the wake of civil lawsuits, legislation has been passed in various countries and jurisdictions to criminalize this practice as well as to define it
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revenge_porn [ T ]

I am not as familiar with the subject as I would like to, but I don't see, as others do, a violation of freedom of speech, if a person DID not give consent that person should have the right to ask for those videos or pictures removed

In my opinion, raping comes to mind, more than revenge and should be considered illegal

The "Ashley Madison hack" is a different thing, the individuals consented ......... do not get me wrong, I am not agreeing with the hackers, they are criminals

Peace =

Straying a little from the original topic but, while I'm not a lawyer, I can see one arguing that the victim did give consent in that they agreed to the photos or videos in the first place. The counter argument is consent was given with the understanding the photos or videos would remain private. This gets more complicated in the cases where the photos or videos were sent via text or email from one person to another as in sexting. In those cases the lawyer could make the argument the photos or videos are no longer private and you have lost the expectation of privacy. The are many nuanced arguments that can be made for both sides. Many criminal cases are won or lost on these arguments.

All that said - let me be clear - I think the practice of revenge porn is horrible. I think the people who do it and the people making money from it are lowlifes. It is a violation of trust. The real problem; however; lies with all those that are searching for it. As always demand will drive supply.

@iquid_dragon =

Many girls or women are not aware that they are being filmed ................ in many of the colleges and universities this take place all the time and the victimizer [ check speller won't accept this word, maybe because there is a more fitting description, but is not acceptable on the forum] will use these videos to blackmail the victim or take a moment of intimacy to destroy another human being

What you describe is not "revenge porn" it is blackmail or worse and i believe is a different problem. Each needs to be dealt with specifically.

To breach the legal finesse currently under consideration, it can get a LOT worse.

I refer to image (and video) editing commonly called "Photoshopping", performed privately or commercially:
- altering one's photo to resemble a cartoon;
- cutting and pasting one's head-shot onto another's body;
- airbrushing to remove clothing and repaint as nude;
- animation of all of the above.

The existence of this technology nullifies the theory of consent.
