Porn trade chatrooms


Another claimed they had obtained photos from a 19-year-old’s laptop when she connected to a Wi Fi network the user controlled, and a third offered to do lookups on “We Leak Info,” a website for searching through database breaches.(We Leak Info told The Daily Beast “We are aware of increasing abuse on our platform and we are working on [a] way to decrease that.”)But beyond revenge porn, Discord is apparently facilitating more extreme chat rooms that are specifically set up to trade videos of rape.Landsem also shared screenshots indicating that other Discord servers are focused specifically on spreading videos of rape and serious abuse.



A few server administrators apparently look down on the practice of trading, and instead demand users dump whatever they may have in the shared chat room.The Daily Beast has found hundreds of images, almost all of women, and many apparently shared without consent across a spread of Discord servers.Many of the Discord users originate from infamous revenge-porn site Anon-IB, and have set up these chatrooms with the deliberate intent of more easily sharing and finding new images. They just make new ones,” Mia Landsem, a professional taekwondo athlete and activist who infiltrates the offending Discord communities, told The Daily Beast.It is not clear what similar measures Discord has in place to mitigate the spread of specific revenge-porn images, but it does allow users to report non-consensually shared pornography, according to a post on the official Discord subreddit.
