"Involuntary porn" site tests the boundaries of legal extortion

http://t.co/9jKi3tBD  (ars technica)

    If you think IsAnyoneUp couldn't be any sleazier, then IsAnybodyDown's
    seems determined to prove you wrong. A link on IsAnybodyDown reading
    "Get Me Off This Site!" leads to the website of "Takedown Hammer," an
    "independent third party team" that, for a modest fee of $250, will
    "issue a successful content removal request on your behalf." It brags
    of 90 successful removals from IsAnybodyDown.com.
