I don't see how getting the pictures taken down somehow obviates personal responsibility. People are going after the website because its the source of damage to their life outside of the decision itself and because they are profiting from a dubious legality. It's really hard to go after the uploader himself as its difficult to prove cause but who says they don't do that too?
Of course it'll be a lesson to people, that goes without saying really. It doesn't mean they're somehow ignoring their own potential role either.
