BangBros bought PornWikiLeaks.com—a website devoted to doxing and harassing porn performers—solely to shut it down and remove all information associated with it

    I miss the days when I could sincerely say "I can't believe a site like this even exists. What the hell is the point!?" Now it doesn't surprise me at all that is exists, I still don't understand...

    It's excluded from the wayback machine. So no copy there. I'm not sure if Deimos will let me link it here so unless he says I can I won't, but I did find it on another archive site. But I guess...

    I'm not sure if Deimos will let me link it here so unless he says I can I won't, but I did find it on another archive site. But I guess nothing like this will ever be 100% effective.

      No, of course you shouldn't post it. This is a story about a positive act, not a challenge to see how much of it you can undo.

      While I'm sure you would not be doing it out of malice, I still think that could potentially go against the Tildes CoC: And regardless of if it violates the CoC, it would be bad idea to post that...

      While I'm sure you would not be doing it out of malice, I still think that could potentially go against the Tildes CoC:

      Do not maliciously attempt to counteract other users' attempts to delete or edit their content, such as by deliberately re-posting content they want to be deleted.

      Do not post anyone's sensitive personal information (related to either their real world or online identity) with malicious intent.

      And regardless of if it violates the CoC, it would be bad idea to post that anyways, IMO.

    Surely this can't work. What is stopping the old owners selling it and then creating a backup website later?

      Presumably it would be part of the sale that they have to refrain from rehosting it. Even if they weren't going to shut it down, why would they want the people they just bought the site off of...

      Presumably it would be part of the sale that they have to refrain from rehosting it. Even if they weren't going to shut it down, why would they want the people they just bought the site off of just creating a new site to compete with them with all the same data?
