Back in 2016 when I was doing the education round, I wrote a story about the Canberra schools caught up in the pornography ring that scandalised the nation. You remember, young men used the site to target specific schools and regions, with hundreds of individual names on the list. Girls were then "hunted" with members of the pornography ring contributing personal details in the search for a "win", the term used for posting a nude photo.
