Essayist Moira Donegan said she made the rundown for ladies to share their stories “without being unnecessarily ruined or judged”.
The rundown rapidly became a web sensation when it was set up in October.
It was online for just 12 hours however accumulated the names of more than 70 men.
Charges against those named extended from provocation to assault.

In her article for The Cut, she said the unknown, swarm sourced list had been an endeavor at fathoming “what has appeared like an immovable issue – how ladies can shield ourselves from inappropriate behavior and strike”.
“I just needed to make a place for ladies to share their stories of badgering and strike without being unnecessarily ruined or judged,” she said.
“The expectation was to make a substitute road to report this sort of conduct and caution others without dread of countering.”
