What You Can Do About Online Cruelty
There are several parties involved in managing a website. There is the person who owns/registered the domain name—usually the site’s creator—and there is also the Internet service provider (ISP), the company that “hosts” the website on its servers.
Anyone may access this background information for a particular website by visiting www.networksolutions.com... and doing a “whois” search of the site in question.
Now that you have the ISP’s information, contact it about the offensive site. If the site’s content violates the ISP’s terms of service, the company might chose to remove it—however, if the site displays criminal acts and warrants an investigation by law enforcement, you might want to hold off on attempting to have the site removed, pending an investigation.
If you have concrete information that a website is displaying/promoting criminal acts, the most effective response is still traditional, local law enforcement. (“Local” in this case means based in the area from which the website originates—the “whois” search will provide you with the registrant’s address.) Do not contact the owner of the site directly—instead, you may wish to contact any or all of the following organizations and advise them of the facts of the situation
4. The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National White Collar Crime Center and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. File an online report with IC3 only if what you have seen has a money angle (someone selling, trading, or offering an illegal good or service). Select "Money" when asked what the incident you are reporting involved.
*You may file a report from abroad, but the IC3 will only review reports of suspected abuse taking place in the United States.
