    I’m wary of line drawing here — if someone takes a sexy picture of someone in their bikini, they could post it on line and give enough identifying info that it can lead to various types of harassment. But, if we want to target the material cited in the op-ed, not sure why civil remedies are not enough, including for deterrence purposes.

    I think the best response can be summarized as “Okay, so you think that Anthony Wiener should get to sue the women who publically posted the sexual pictures he sent them?”

    Anthony Weiner is a public figure who resigned because it was found his behavior was unfit for his public position. The pictures, not “revenge” alone, factored in here. I don’t think that quite does it — e.g., the op-ed is concerned about women being harassed because pictures with contact information are put online. Public figures are not as secluded — they put themselves out there.
