The infamous – ‘Is Anyone Up?’
Moore created the website in 2010 with the intention of it being a nightlife website, but after he and several pals received sexually explicit images from ladies they were hooking up with at the time and the site was renamed Is Anyone Up?
Moore’s website allowed users to upload sexual and explicit images of people online without their consent, typically accompanied by personal information such as their names and residences.
He refused to remove photographs even upon asking and its content subsequently became known as “revenge porn.” The website was online for 16 months, during which time he declared that he was protected by the same laws that protect FB.
Moore sold the website in 2012 to an anti-bullying website named BullyVille.com after the FBI investigation. In 2013, a defamation suit was filed against Moore after he allegedly called McGibney a “paedophile” and threatened to rape his wife.

Hunter Moore also threatened to burn down The Village Voice’s headquarters if they published an article regarding his FBI probe but ran the story regardless of the threat.
