Washington, April 20 (ANI): A notorious "revenge porn" blog that provided a free forum for jilted lovers to post nude photos and videos of their ex's anonymously was sold to an anti-bullying website and then taken down on Thursday.

The site's owner Hunter Moore said the decision to close was made to "to stand up for under-age bullying".

"IsAnyoneUp.com served no public good. That is why it is offline," ABC News quoted James McGibney, the founder of BullyVille.com, as saying in a statement.

"The problem of IsAnyoneUp.com is now solved. In its place, BullyVille.com will exist to help people who are being bullied solve their problems through cooperation and thoughtfulness, rather than abuse."

BullyVille.com, a social website on which people can share stories about being bullied, was launched last Friday in partnership with Guns 'N' Roses lead guitarist D.J. Ashba, a personal friend of McGibney's.

Weeks before IsAnyoneUp.com was taken down, Moore told "Nightline" he launched it as a place for "public humiliation."

People could upload sexually explicit photos and video without a victim's permission, and include a screen grab of their Facebook account and a link to their Twitter account, for the whole Internet to see. A section on the website allowed people to comment on the photos and videos. (ANI)
