The First STD Registry is Back Online
The original sexually transmitted disease carrier registry is back online to give thousands of people a heads up they might not otherwise have after nearly a decade.

In 2008 STDCarriers.com was nationally recognized as the first website dedicated to helping the public expose dangerous individuals with STDs online. By 2012 the site had been visited by millions of people and thousands of them used STDCarriers.com to report those they said were carriers of genital herpes, genital warts, HPV, Hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS. The site was not without controversy. In 2012 Anderson Cooper was shocked that it even existed.
"It is amazing to me that that it is legal basically." - Anderson Cooper
That shock was echo'ed by members of congress that did not like a nearly identical service that dealt with immigration issues.
"We will be asking the Justice Department to advise us whether or not this violates any federal laws" - Former Rep. Joe Crowley, D. New York
The site went down later that year and remained offline for over seven years. During that time imitators came and went. At least two cheap knock offs were built around 2015 that were similar in name and included scraped content from the original site.
STDCarriers.com is now back online just as it appeared on June 24, 2012 when the site went down. In coming months the site is due for some upgrades to modernize it for today's mobile web.
