Forum shopping typically describes someone going from forum to forum trying
to get a different decision on some particular thing they want. In this
case, I don't think privatemusings is looking for a specific outcome (like
deleting an image, achieving a block, influencing an AfD, etc.). The object
is, and has been, to raise awareness of this as a significant issue.

The general subject was discussed recently in more detail on Jimmy's en.wp
talkpage. That discussion can be found at
Some other things addressed in that section are userspace galleries of
explicit images under headings like "hot" "admiration of the female form"
