On 28th November 2012, Andrew (Drew) Myers approached an internet message board asking for legal help, concerning his revenge porn website. The revenge porn website takes submissions from people submitting nude photos of young girls and men. Drew Myers then takes it upon himself to uncover as much information as he can about the victim, in some cases posting the nude photos alongside victim’s names, addresses, employers and more – going so far as to share that content directly with the victim’s friends and family. As the community became aware of what this man was doing, and the lives he was destroying, they took it upon themselves to prove to him that his actions would have consequences, and that his actions were abhorrent, leading to the formation of this campaign seeking justice for his helpless victims.
Over the coming days, Drew revealed a dark, sociopathic character. Some of the quotes from Drew Myers (he goes by the username “Spooled”) posted on the message board are highlighted below:
This is a man who knows exactly what he is doing. When confronted by angry members of the community, he refused to take the website down, and even went so far as to claim that one of the people posted up on his website committing suicide would be good. That it would drive more traffic to his website, and make him more money.
Member’s of the community found it easy to link the real identity of the website owner with his forum posts. Actively choosing to promote his website on his facebook page, as highlighted by the screenshot below. The facebook page was hosted at http://www.facebook.com/SupraSpooled but was taken down by Facebook for terms of service violations. A screenshot can be seen below:
On his Facebook profile, he repeatedly bragged about how he harassed victims, their families and friends via the social network, ensuring that photos published to his site were seen by all of the victims friends and family. One example that he posted is shown in the screenshot below (names have been crossed out, and the video itself sensored to protect the identities of the people involved).
One girl had a published on the website, along with her name, address, facebook details and more, which wasn’t even her. Either Drew or the person submitting the content had edited the photo to merge it with a porn picture from the internet. A direct attack on the girl’s reputation. She requested that her personal information be taken off of the website, claiming she was sexually assaulted by someone who had found her information on the website, and turned up at her open house. A screenshot of Drew’s shocking reaction to this is shown below:
Taking a further look into some of the content Drew Myers has shared online, distasteful status updates on the social network “Meetme” such as the following were highlighted, just after the tragic shooting at the Batman Premier in Colorado.
Drew (Andrew) Myers is a college student at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The college has yet to release a statement concerning his actions.
The young men and girls targeted by Drew’s website need your help – whether that is just by sharing this page with your facebook friends, on Twitter, or telling us more about the website owner. Together, the website can be taken down and the impact on the helpless victims minimised. Websites like this ruin lives, you only have to look at the recent case of Amanda Todd to understand the true psychological damage this can do to victims. We encourage any victims who feel they have been harassed by Drew, to consider pressing charges. If you have more information on this matter, or are one of the many victims of the website, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to update this website as more information becomes available.
