Rape is a terrible crime.

So are murder and torture, but lots of people here (myself included) joke about that.

...That being said, it depends on the joke, and knowing rape jokes, very few (read: almost none, to the point where I don't remember ever reading a good one) are actually in any way remotely good or funny.  And regardless, this guy needs his ass kicked to Pluto and back.

The far side of Pluto.

I don't like the concept of outing this, if what he was doing was illegal (dunno about american law), gawker should have contacted the authorities.

If it was not illegal, then fuck you gawker. Either way I dont agree with them releasing his identity.
The way I see it, all those poor girls whose upskirt pictures (and god knows what else) were posted on Reddit had their identities unfairly plastered online--all while he hid behind an anonymous handle. I don't feel sorry for him in the least. I'm glad he was outed and glad he was fired.

EDIT: And for those of you who still don't know what's going on, the embedded link in my original post does a great job of detailing the whole situation.

You people are aware this guy created r/Jailbait and various other subreddits dedicated to taking pictures of underage girls, that's 17-13, and plastering them all over Reddit?  This guy was a creep of the creepiest creepy order.  Him losing his job doesn't cause me to shed one tear.  If anything he should be in jail for the distribution of child pornography.

Ironbite-guy creeps me out and the fact that people defend him creeps me out further.

This. Crucify the fucker.

Been a member of Reddit for over a year and never heard of this guy until now. Either way, screw him, no sympathy that now he's facing repercussions.

Vigilante justice leaves a bad taste in my mouth because of the potential for mob mentality and witch-hunting to kick in, but I honestly can't bring myself to feel anything other than schadenfreude for this sick creep and any bad press Peddit gets as a result of this. Plus, the authorities have done nothing in this case, à la Mabus.

Members of ShitRedditSays—which is a clusterfuck of fail of a completely different variety in its own right, but that's neither here nor there—have reported, several times with no result AFAIK, both Violentacrez and Peddit itself to the authorities: Violentacrez for obvious reasons, Peddit for being extremely complacent and turning a blind eye to the creeper communities, which range from legal but incredibly distasteful (rape jokes) to blatantly illegal (taking voyeuristic pictures of people—underage people at that—without their consent and sharing them online).

Of all the horrible communities that are not entirely focused on heinous subjects, like 4chan and The TVTropes Forums,
Wait, what's wrong with TVTropes?

Am I the only one who doesn't see the big deal? Sure, he seems to have some creepy interests. But the way everyone thinks he's detestable scum seems like a huge overreaction to me. It's especially worrisome to me that IB thinks people who post pictures of fully clothed teenage girls online should go to jail for it.

Probably.

Having a collection of surreptitiously taken upskirt "creep" shots is...what's the word...illegal. As is child porn. Deal with it.

The argument that a lot of Redditors have been using to defend him has been "well, if they didn't want their pictures on the Internet, then they shouldn't have put them [on Facebook/whatever] in the first place." Another argument has been that they're exercising freedom of speech and that it's perfectly legal to take photos of girls in bikinis without their permission.

I'm going to say that it is deliciously ironic that they are now crying foul when those same arguments are coming back to bite them in the ass.

Yeah. I can see the problem with Reddit and 4chan, but... TVTropes?

The creepy interests aren't the problem. It's the fact that he's posting pictures of people online without their consent. That in itself is a violation of privacy. Then of course there were the up skirt photos of under age girls, which I believe should speak for itself.

TVTropes is fine as long as you stay far away from the forums and the Troper Tales pages.

The forums are, from what I hear, terrible.

Hence why I've started calling myself a casual troper :-/
