Andrew Myers Revenge Website Owner and Coward Andrew Myers of Ohio, owner of “isanyoneback.com” has refused to take down his website which exploits, embarrasses, humiliates, and takes advantage of unsuspecting victims (some of them allegedly under the age of 18) and laughs his way all to the bank (for a measily 400/month in claimed website earnings.) Even worse, Myers makes a hyper text link from the images to the actual profile of the victim. He them takes it a step further and goes on their profile to taunt them and “expose” them to their friends and family. Great press, right? Recently, Myers went onto a popular Gay Webmaster Forum seeking advice from his “peers” on how to further monetize this website. Enraged by this unethical solicitation, the members of this forum became enraged and immediately started giving Myers a taste of his own medicine. This quickly spread to other social media forums such as reddit.com, digg.com, Facebook and Twitter. People tried reasoning with Myers citing ethical quandaries, karma, and just doing the right thing – however Myers continued to taunt the members stating: If someone killed themselves over my website, the fame would be through the roof, and we all know fame= audience, audience= traffic, traffic = $$ More appalling is that Mr. Myers has been found to have stolen these pictures from other websites that he does not own, and using it on his own website. Another eBully who is attempting to profit from the mistakes others have made, however we shall see how the drama unfolds as the pirates of the internet continues to chip away at his puny enterprise.
