I met Hunter Moore one time. He handed me a glass of lukewarm Skyy vodka and Drivenbyboredom's Igor Smith showed me he was an expert mixologist by putting a lemon wedge in it. We were at The Foundation Room in Mandalay Bay in Vegas, and it was the night before the AVNs. Moore repeatedly asked me if I was going to give him bad press, but really, I didn't have very many bad things to say about Moore. He'd done a genius thing: he'd created a website that was fueled by sexy user-generated content and the asshole in all of us. You submitted photos of a naked person and their social media, he verified they were over 18, then he posted them online. So simple. So obvious. And he was somewhat responsible about it. If you submitted photos of someone under 18, he reported you to the feds as a pedo. And like any 20-something broadsided with notoriety and money, he partied with half-naked porn stars and Instagrammed photos of what appeared to be blow cut in fat lines on chick's asses.
But then Hunter Moore had a change of heart. Three ghosts visited him in the night. They were the ghosts of women exposed on the Internet -- past, present and future. This did far more to bring him to a trembling epiphany than his appearance on Anderson Cooper or the time a bitch stabbed him. Leaning out his window, he cried, "You! Founder of Bullyville, CupidVille, CheaterVille and KarmaVille! Find me the fattest buy-out you can find!"
And so now, if you type in IsAnyoneUp.com, hoping to find pictures of violated hipsters, you will be redirected to Bullyville.com and a plaintive message from Moore pleading for your forgiveness like an inmate up for parole.
Moore's new project is wepartyforacause.com. He throws ridiculous parties and a portion of the proceeds go to a different charity every week. That sounds like pretty much every fundraiser I've ever heard of, except you wouldn't have to pretend to be classy and there probably aren't any decorations carved out of ice.
So what are these online villages that have bought up all the indie nudie pics on Moore's Monoply board? Well, CheaterVille is a site where you can tattle on people you've met who are cheaters, whether it's the ex that banged the bassist in your band or the loser you found out was married with eight kids after you already blew him in a motel and didn't think that was weird or anything.
Then, like anyone does when they meet a hottie at a bar, if that hottie has a dirty track record, you can search for him/her and find out the poorly worded, grammatically inaccurate dirt before you go home with him (and then do it anyhow).
KarmaVille is where you can submit/find both good and bad karma. I learned that Barack Obama endorses gay marriage, but a couple from Fort Wayne, IN tied their kids to the roof of their car! ALSO THAT BITCH SHANNEN DOHERTY BROKE UP LADY'S DAUGHTER'S MARRIAGE.
CupidVille is a goddamn dating site, duh.
And what of BullyVille? It seems obvious that it would be stories of the bullies and the bullied. Jennifer Lopez was a real Bronx bitch in the day, reportedly chasing her sister around with a knife. Pastor Sean Harris of North Carolina encouraged his congregation to punch any son of theirs who showed signs of being effeminate. But poor Mandy Moore was reduced to tears by the mean girl at her high school.
BullyVille joins several other similar sites -- like ItGetsBetter -- hoping to put an end to bullying cunts.
Goodbye, No Butthole No Care. I'll miss you.
