30-year-old Jonathan Mostafa, of Chestnuthiil Township, Pennsylvania, was recently arrested for allegedly posting child porn on Tumblr. When the images were discovered Tumblr contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children who in turn contacted local police.
I still don’t understand why anyone would post child porn to a service that is owned by a multi-billion dollar corporation like Yahoo and think they could get away with it, but if makes it easier to find creeps like this then more power to ’em.
What really concerns me about this is that Tumblr is in the process of rolling out instant messaging for its users. Between creeps like this and the young userbase of Tumblr I see this as another avenue that predators can use to approach your kids.
