"Online vigilantism in general is nothing new, but lately I’ve been noticing a
disturbing trend of people trying to teach others that they “should’ve known
better” by posting “embarrassing” photos of them online, and/or doxing them
based on photos of them that were already online."

Executive summary:  It's sociopathic, and the weak justifications offered are
nonsense.
