I know 2 of the victims of this horrific behaviour and asked them about balancing the exposure of such deeds with the desire to not extend the pain for any victims.
Bostelaar ran BikeRackTO, a tumblr blog (now deleted) with *approved* racy photos of Toronto cyclists with their bikes. Some of the victims appeared on that blog. Not all of them did.

A popular Toronto photographer is being accused of posting revealing photos and contact information of women he knows in online forums meant to shame, expose and harass — which the women say violated their trust and was done without their consent.
Ren Bostelaar, an amateur photographer and married father behind the blog Bike Rack TO, issued an apology on Facebook after he was confronted by at least one of the women involved. That post sparked fierce reaction in recent days, including from those discovering photos not meant for public view had been posted alongside their identities and contact information.
