    Reddit and violentacrez

    http://gawker.com/5950981/unmasking-...oll-on-the-web

    I thought we were rough, but subforums designed to attract pictures of underaged girls, not only creepy but how do you keep child porn out?

    Managing an army of 20,000 moderators, how the hell do you do that?

    The article made me feel like I was from the Victorian era.

    I guess I just got tired of all the hassle." He said he was done with Reddit for good. "Reddit ceased being fun a while ago," he said.
    Well, it is good to know that this comment exists for every troll.

    Why is it always trotted out after you get caught?

      Fuck him and fuck everyone who defends that lump of human waste. I think my favorite summation of the situation so far has been "Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences."

        while im a huge proponent of freedom of speech, and yes it is within his rights to do the things he did, i find it kind of ironic for him to then turn around and plead not to be outed about it. would he have been compassionate if a girl who was posted on one of his forums asked him to take down the pictures? i presume not. if you are going to go down this road you should really accept that inevitably, if you get big enough, someone WILL out you.

          The Internet is serious business. Then again he is a disgusting loser. I mean really what a weird sob.

            My brother was a mod on that site..I'll ask and come back, but right now we aren't on good terms..maybe because he has no more access to his kiddie-pornos.

            Btw, they have a pretty unique platform as far as managing the mods.

              There's a load of outrage on reddit over what Chen did. People there seem to think that just because they didn't give their e-mail that should somehow grantee them anonymity. Aside from any moral implication of this story, it's interesting to me because it's probably shattered a lot of people's expectations about the separation between their on and off line identities.

                  I agree with this. Real talk, there is no such thing as true anonymity. The closest thing on the intrawebz is 4chan and we all know that the mods there can identify posters by IP and what a shithole that place is. Forget any forum that requires you sign up with an email and a username.

                  TBH, I think that this whole violentacrez thing could be taken as a good thing because it shows that sometimes, the consequences would never be the same.

                    I've not clicked on the link provided by Sam due to his words in the original post.

                    All child molesters and child seekers of child porno should be sterilized. Extreme, yes, but heart felt.

                        Volunteer Crowdsourcing. It would be the same as if Bullshido had a sign up mod program, with the idea that the more people reviewing content the less trouble, no matter how it scales.

                        But that's a flawed model in open (i.e. free sign up) internet communities... because plenty of the volunteers are douchebags and troll-hobbyists like Mr. Brutsch. Can you sign up 20,000? Sure, but you can't control them all, especially when the worst offenders have connections with Reddit HQ.

                          And "anonymity"? That's the least of your problems, it's lost all the time on the internet in some form or another.

                          What matters is what you did online, at the end of the day.

                          Michael Brutsch, of Arlington, Texas—said on Saturday that he was fired from from his position at a financial services company, leaving him and his disabled wife with little savings and no health insurance.

                            I feel sorry for the guy's wife.

                            Also, what a fucking piece of shit. He deserves all he gets. I got bored, I started playing D&D on a message board. As opposed to doing pervert stuff, for example.

                              im just amazed someone who is apparently quite savvy with the internet could be so fucking naive as to think he would never be unmasked. nothing is sacred on the internet, least of all your true identity.
