Being the semi-random creep that I am, I sometimes check up on Anonib.com to see if anyone I know has been posted up. I even recommended it as my top pick for “revenge porn sites” these days. It seemed like just an anonymous image board – hence the name “AnonIB.” My guess is that the feds or someone cracked down on the owner for having nudes on the site. That place was loaded with a bunch of random nudes of legally aged chicas from every state.
Update: Anonib.com Permanently Shut Down
The site owner(s) and operator has permanently shut down this operation. Apparently there were enough funds raised to help this cause and put this type of stuff to an end. They issued a statement following the site’s closing that you will be able to read if you visit. Here’s what the site’s head honcho and operator had to say:
“Apology to the girls who were posted on the site against their will and especially those that had to donate to have their pictures removed. It is a warning to those that abuse others online. There are forces at work that track and expose them, and those forces WILL win in the end. There are plenty of girls and boys, men and women, who willingly want to be naked on the internet so post their pictures instead.” – Matija (Anonib Team)
Anonib Redirecting to Video.Anonib.com? WTF
It now automatically redirects to “Video.Anonib.com“… This is a porn site with random porn – not real authentic pics or videos of people that you may know.
I guess it has been an active website for quite some time now, and the owner is either trying to cash in by redirecting everyone to a porn site, or he was forced to remove the material on the main image database. I just found out about the site this year, so I’ve only been randomly checking it out for a month or so to see if anyone I know was on it. CREEP-ing on the lo lo.
F.B.I. Tracking? Like I Trust Yahoo Answers. Pshh.
According to some Yahoo Answers mofo, this website has been tracked closely by the FBI for awhile. I don’t know that we can really give too much credibility to any Yahoo Answers mofo’s but in this case who knows. I guess the site was shut down several times and last down in 2012. Fortunately I didn’t contribute anything that could get me into trouble.
Thinking about it made me wonder how this site got shut down when no personal information about the pics is ever given. I would think that a website like MyEx.com would be targeted first – as it has pictures, first and last names, videos, as well as links to Facebook and Twitter accounts of the peeps that are posted.
Anyways, almost done with my rant. According to the Anonib.com official Twitter page, it is dead because of a “Disk Crash” and they are currently “Restoring the Database.” We will wait and see if that ever happens. In the meantime, don’t waste your time trying to visit the site or you’ll be redirected to the dreaded amateur porn vidz that are featured. At this time even the Wayback Machine doesn’t have Anonib.com in their database… It could be because it’s a pronny site, but it’s not there.
Anyways I just thought I’d keep the people updated. Apparently they have a backup of everything and are working on restoring the website. The twitter even posts a link to a page that claims to have an entire backup, but it’s more like a redirect to a site that will infect your computer with some trojan
condom virus or something.
In the meantime, if you are seriously lacking your revenge porn fix or AnonIB.com fix, check out some of the other sites that I recommended. UPDATE: Back and working under a (slightly) new URL… Anon-IB.com.
