    LittleGossip.com - Please read

    Dear All,
    I would just like to draw your attentions to one of the most degrading and irresponsible sites online; Little Gossip: Share and Discuss Latest University & College Gossip

    Their slogan, "Find out the gossip in YOUR university/college about someone you know, rate it, or make up your own!" clearly describes the website as highly irresponsible.

    You set your country, find your school/college and hit enter.
    Click 'Add Gossip'
    Enter ANY EMAIL ADDRESS (which doesn't get verified)
    Target any student (victim) you like
    They say you must be 18 to post on the site and the person you are posting about must also be over 18. With a simple "YES" and this challenging authentication is cracked.
    Write your insults, no matter how slanderous, insulting, incorrect or bully-like-behaviour.
    Enter in the CAPTCHA

    DONE!

    This is not my college, however you can see the insults and threats that are going around on this college's page Little Gossip: Share and Discuss Latest University & College Gossip

    If you wish to have a post removed, you must make 2 spam-like gossips before you can do so.

    We have been in touch with the site and they REFUSE to remove our school from the site.

    Naturally we have now blocked this site within the school network but this does not stop kids from logging on to different machines at home or using iPhones etc to get on to the site and target vulnerable kids.

    If you don't like what you see please email: contact@littlegossip.com

    Also, does anybody know of a internet equivalent of OFCOM for the internet?


    Many thanks

    GoDaddy is a well known provider, because they are cheap and tend to not be bothered by what they host. (Edit: in my experience)

    Blocking will be the best policy for now. Spread the word to other establishments to do the same. Try contacting the main filter companies to get it added to their automated black listings.

    Its not blocked here via LGfL. I've just visited the first page to see the word f*** and a sexual reference. I think this will be blocked internally asap!

    There has been a huge discussion about this website on the HMC mailing list. Various actions have been taken up to and including contacting CEOP to try and get the site taken down as it is completely irresponsible.

    2 points: 1. How will CEOP help if in america? 2. They can't take wikileaks down (for long!), will they bother with this?

    BTW, not arguing that it should be taken down, awful site!

    1. CEOP is part of the Virtual Global Taskforce and as such routinely liaises and cooperates with law enforcement agencies globally, including the US. I know for a fact that LittleGossip has been on their radar for some time as it was discussed at the CEOP Ambassador training I attended in October.

    2. WikiLeaks have much more technical know-how than some idiotic bullying site (and that's all this is). I don't imagine the owners of LittleGossip will be hard to track down.

    P.S. Blocked by RM SafetyNet.
