My opinion on this matter is the same opinion I have on the ongoing NSA-Snowden leaks. If you don't want it leaked on the internet, DON'T DO IT.
So you're saying that celebrities shouldn't have any expectation to a private life?  ???

If they don't want to risk the chance that their naked photos will be seen by others the best idea is not to take those naked photos. It's not rocket science.

There are a ton of holier-than-thou articles condemning anyone who looks at the photos, let alone partake in the Fappening. Some even go as far as to call this a sex crime.
Personally I think it's pretty shitty to look at them, but whatever.

If you're taking nudies then uploading them onto a cloud service... what do you expect?

What does that have to do with how shitty of a thing it is or isn't to look at them?

No, it's computer science.  Cloud providers shouldn't say that they are secure if they can be so easily hacked.
Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

It's not just cloud providers being hacked. Someone can be looking over her shoulder and see her type in her password. Her phone can be stolen. The person she sends them to can share them with others against her wishes.

Taking the photographs that can be used to embarrass or humiliate you is a stupid decision all around.

This really should be an eye opener for everyone about online security.

That doesn't make it any less wrong for someone to steal those photographs and make them publicly available.

In other news, the numpties on /r/thefappening have had their money rejected by a charity for the second time.

It's pretty humorous how angry they get. If you actually gave a damn about donating to these groups, then do it anonymously.

Yeah, good. More money to provide clean water to those who need it? No thanks, sounds gay as fuck if it's coming from people who have looked at nude photos of celebrities.

You can't claim it as a tax deduction if you donate anonymously.

I don't think it has anything to do with role models. Fuck that bollocks. If celebrities had to be role models then all we'll get is the Jonas Brothers and Hannah cunting Montana before she got hot.

Welp, /r/thefappening was finally banned by the reddit admins. Now I get to watch thousands of people berate the admins because /r/picsofdeadkids can exist but /r/thefappening cannot. It's crazy how attached people on Reddit have gotten to those images.
