She found out about AnonIB in the worst way a teenage girl could: via a text message from someone who saw her nude pictures posted on the website.

Seriously, what is wrong with you?
Do you think AT ALL before you write?

You have just guaranteed more visitors to that site than ever, and even told people how they can post damaging pictures without getting caught.

Did you really have to publish the actual name of the site, or did you just HAVE to show off how internet "savvy" you are?

Surely you think your vanity plate number should be 1337, when clearly it should be 455H47.

The two knuckleheads above (who need to quit taking shots in this forum),seem to be missing the point...people need to stop putting their naked, compromising selves out there to anyone, be it friend, lover,dog catcher...nobody, no how. Learn to trust no one when it comes to this sort of thing, because down the road or sooner it WILL come back to bite you.The days of destroying negatives is a long over.The oft used axiom 'the internet is forever' is sadly very very real...once it's out there you ain't getting it back.

Exploitation by unscrupulous people is everywhere...just a text or email...or school desk away.

Actually airedale1950 with the exception of the "knucklehead" part of your post (and isn't that taking a shot on this forum) I totally agree. If you're going to put something out on the internet, you better be prepared for the consequences. Be it a tweet by a celebrity, a posting on facebook or youtube or a photo posted somewhere by some kid, it will always come back to bite you in the end. (no pun intended)
