Fired for WHAT!? - Jailbait and Creepshots

If the title didn't give it away . . . Warning: creepy icky subject matter ahead. We'll file this one under, "when anonymous online personas go public." The Star-Telegram has the story about an Arlington resident fired after outing as Reddit troll. This sounds a little worse than your average Internet trolling though:
Last Friday, the married, 49-year-old computer programmer from Arlington was publicly outed as the moderator of two controversial online forums, Jailbait and Creepshots, that allegedly shared photos of scantily clad, underage girls, some said to have been taken from Facebook pages without permission.
His employer did not approve and fired him. The guy used the screenname violentacrez - and believe it or not, it actually gets worse (or about the same . . . but broader in scope?):
Violentacrez, pronounced, "violent acres," posted "an unending fountain of racism, porn, gore, misogyny [and] incest" on the sprawling community site Reddit . . . . In addition, he created or moderated pages called Chokeabitch, Rapebait, Jewmerica and one that used a racial slur in reference to underage black girls.
Good luck with that next job interview.

Interviewer: So, why did you leave your last job?
Guy: Apparently, my employer had a problem with my Chokeabitch and Jewmerica web communities . . . .
Interviewer: We'll be in touch . . . .
