Some of the things that users might consider "revenge porn" would include porn that is sent to them via email (either images or text - both of which I've received), or images/comments posted to their userspace or to other places where it was intended to come to their attention (e.g., obviously inappropriate images posted to article talk pages). Links and "easter eggs" leading to similar content could also be considered "revenge porn". Context is often important. In particular, the Wikimedia projects host a vast quantity of images and media that are appropriate to a limited number of articles but would be inappropriate or even offensive in other presentations.
