By Mr. Nik Richie (real name Hooman Karamian), who runs the blog "The Dirty" and his company Dirty World LLC's own admission, additional safeguards are unlikely to entirely end the practice of online bullying on the site.
The site allows people to submit "dirt" and text on individuals without any permission of photo(s) use or the liberality of what can come from that for those individuals lives.
Furthermore it encourage's hate, online bullying and even in the past when a user submitted a question to Mr. Richie about what if his site resulted in someone committing suicide how he felt about that his response was =
" Why are you asking me? Ask Facebook, YouTube, Google and MySpace… they already have suicides under their belt and they seem fine.- nik "
Personally I have been attacked by this website on several occasions which they refuse to remove. I'm only one person who has been targeted by this website and I know their are many other but with the help of you we can change the world, and hopefully a little less hateful.
If you google Thedirty. com and petitions you will see I am not the only person who has tried to stop this site.
People who adversitve with this site will are also being petitioned to STOP advertising with it.
Currently everytime someone signs this peition 19 emails are sent to the Dirty World LLC and their advertisting partners, I will continue to add every company and email that I can find until we can stop this website.
