Does the name Hunter Moore mean anything to you? Chances are you never heard of the guy. He runs a site that allows people to upload information on ex-lovers, including their names, social media profiles, photos and other details in an attempt to have the person stalked online. Now he's moving to physical stalking by posting a person's physical address, and Anonymous is having none of it.

The hacktivist group has recently been on anti-bully spree that resulted in them "doxing" a man they accused of pushing a teen girl to suicide. The group sees Moore in much the same light - as an Internet bully. KY Anonymous started up #OpHuntHunter to find information on Moore and post it online.

Anonymous has this to say about its latest operation:

This is a call to all Anonymous worldwide, you have a chance to make a real difference in the lives of hundreds of bullied teenagers and protect them from real harm such as rape or stalking.

Hunter Moore, Founder of previous revenge pornography site isanyoneup.com is coming back stronger than ever from the shutdown of his previous website. This capitalist makes money off of the misery of others.

People submit pictures of others naked to his website and he posted their social networking profiles along with the pictures.
This time he is taking it a step further and plans to list physical addresses next to the victims pictures along with a map to their house, self proclaiming that he has singlehandedly enabled the stalking of hundreds.

His servers are up. he already has domains he is secretly testing and will go public soon. He hides behind a loophole of section 230 of the United States online decency act which states he cannot be held legally accountable for third party submitted content.

This is a call to all of anonymous. We Will hold hunter moore accountable for his actions, we will protect anyone who is victimized by abuse of our internet, we will prevent the stalking, rape, and possible murders as byproduct of his sites.

BetaBeat notes that Moore's address has been known for some time. Simply "doxing" him isn't going to accomplish much. With that being said, sites like End Revenge Porn are jumping in with Anonymous in hopes of stopping Moore from continuing with his latest stunt. It will be interesting to see the response Anonymous gets from this latest move as some people still don't particularly trust the group even when they use their power for vigilante justice.
