WHAT TO DO ABOUT [REDACTED]?
I got an email from [a gay porn star] a few days ago asking me to remove various posts with him in it. As a Russian in a small university town, he claims that his porn past is getting him in trouble — that people are using the links to blackmail him, he could be kicked out of the house and that he might be facing arrest. Despite the fact that the cat was out of the bag, and that porn-wise you have to be prepared to be found out, I did plan on taking down the posts. Then yesterday I got an update in my inbox. What should I do?
[UPDATE: We took the links down, and have redacted the name from the comments. While porn does bring certain consequence, youth brings certain exceptions — and this seemed dire enough not to keep it up. Thanks for all the advice.]
