Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our recent post about a Colorado Springs website that appears to cater in revenge porn -- explicit photos shared by upset former sex partners -- attracted comments that found fault in the actions of the man behind the site and those who unwittingly provided him with raw material. Here's an example of the latter.

The kid shouldn't have done it, but I agree that the people who took the photos are extremely, incredibly, unequivocally stupid. I don't think they deserve to win a lawsuit unless they can prove they lost a job over it. A "lesson learned" for one party and a cease and desist letter for the other.
