We'll see where Stimson gets a job after his pentagon gig is up. I'm guessing none of these firms will be interested.

Yay, Moe!

Oops. Well, yay, hilzoy!

Oh Dear God.

I blame it on Anarch. (He alerted me to the somewhat unnerving fact that someone, somewhere, had stuck an extremely graphic porn image into the middle of one of our old posts. I thought I had logged out again, but apparently not.)

He'll be one of those third rate prosecutors available for Starr Report II once Hillary is president (that is, if we still had the independent cousnel law -- don't you miss it?!).

"He alerted me"

He didn't alert the rest of us? What's up with that?

rilkefan: trust me. Be glad. If you want to know what oral sex looks like from close up, I suggest you consult your wife and a mirror.

I blame it on Anarch.

Always a good default choice ;-)

My money's on Thomas from Bizarro World.

Ugh: thing is, it was actually in the post. I mean: embedded like the pictures of the moon I stuck up last week, only pornographic. I don't see how that's possible w/o the password.

And if Thomas has the pw, we're all in trouble.

Every small victory must be recognized. We are facing a zionist/neo-con cabal that routinely violates our rights.
They violate the 1st Amendment by opening mail, caging demonstrators and banning books like "America Deceived" from Amazon. America Deceived (book)
They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns during Katrina.
They violate the 4th Amendment by conducting warrant-less wiretaps.
They violate the 5th and 6th Amendment by suspending habeas corpus.
They violate the 8th Amendment by torturing.
They violate the entire Constitution by starting 2 illegal wars based on lies and on behalf of a foriegn gov't.
Cure all these ills, vote for Dr. Ron Paul, 2008.
Support indy media.

Ugh: thing is, it was actually in the post.

Well, that is weird. Any programmers out there know how this might happen (cleek?)?

And if Thomas has the pw, we're all in trouble.

Yes, Thomas having the password would be to ObWi like Bush having the One Ring would be to the world (fortunately he's just the "leader of the free world" - and making it less free by the hour).

Back in the fall sometime, before the elelction, I went to visit Brad Miller's site and got a kiddie porn site instead. I clicked back to Yahoo,and tired again--and got the kiddie porn again. On the third try, I got Miller's site. I assumed that it was just some weird glitch, but maybe someone sabotaged his site.

Don't much like the running commentary regarding the purported evildoing of folks who aren't here to defend themselves. It's kinda, well cattty.

A pornographic picture in a post sounds like a bigger problem than simple spam. Let's try to figure out what's going on.

If it's a PW problem, login as Moe (or whomever), change the password, logout. Fixed.

Ugh: thing is, it was actually in the post.

Well, that is weird. Any programmers out there know how this might happen (cleek?)?

Well, based on what I understand of this site's structure, that simply shouldn't be possible. I've been out of the web programming loop for a couple of years, but that's sufficiently fundamental that I will assert (hehe, I made a really awful play on words) that it should not be able to happen.

H'm. Unless. Was there already an image in there in the post? An image that was externally hosted? I'm guessing not, but if there had been and it got swapped with the other on the remote site, well, that would work. Other than that, I got nothin'. It would seem like you'd've needed to have your account compromised. Or (perhaps most likely) your webhost was compromised, in which case I'd assume that bunches of sites hosted thereby would have gotten random "presents" inserted into their pages...

Likely there was an embedded link to an external image. Some site owners consider that stealing bandwith and punish the offender by replacing the image with something snarky or inappropriate, in this case the latter.

Well, that is weird. Any programmers out there know how this might happen (cleek?)?

what G just said.

any time you use a reference to an image hosted on someone else's site, you're at the mercy of that site's owner.

^^ I was just about to say what g and cleek said.

Wait....."Moe Lane" is your porn name?

I always thought it was your first pet's name and the street you grew up on. You're not supposed to use the "Lane" part of your original street....

signed,

"Jigsaw Canby"

"You're not supposed to use the "Lane" part of your original street"

On the other hand, there are two separate roads in the Philadelphia suburbs named Street Road. And both of them are state highways, complete with route numbers. In addition, when I was growing up, a bypass portion of US 1 was officially designated Super Highway.

Why does corporate America hate America?

They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns during Katrina.

Hmmm...one of these theys is not like the others.

Don't much like the running commentary regarding the purported evildoing of folks who aren't here to defend themselves.

Hey, he won't even link here cause ObWi is a "hate site" (in his words), so obviously it couldn't be him.

Oh, and per zmulls' 4:37,

Signed (depending on how you define "street you grew up on" and "first pet"):

Bouncer Woodland

or

Hawkeye Skyline

Molly Weston.

someone shoulda told my dad that he needed to get a male dog for my first pet, not a female. damn that bitch.

Pickles Seaman.

I kid you not.

Danny Biesbosch

Max Sunset

(which does sound like a nom de p0rn come to think of it... oy!)

Poogy Prentiss.

I kid you not.

The porn image was externally hosted, so it's possible there was an externally hosted image originally. (Wasn't one of my posts, which is why I had to turn into Moe.)

rilkefan: He didn't alert the rest of us? What's up with that?

Any time you want to consider yourself alerted, email me ;)

Bernard: Always a good default choice ;-)

*sigh*

Yes.

But I blame the parents.

hilzoy: If you want to know what oral sex looks like from close up, I suggest you consult your wife and a mirror.

From what little I saw, I think it would've been more appropriate to consult that cute guy at Starbucks...

And I agree with G, cleek et al. I actually know a couple of sites which, if they detect mass external linkage, will deliberately change those links to the hardest hardcore pictures they can find. It's apparently an extraordinarily effective deterrent.

Coco Arlington.

Seriously.

Well, at least they didn't change the picture into a portrait of Nixon. *That* would be hard core. (Sysadmin apochrypha: find user's pr0n collection, change all pixx to portraits of Richard M.)

Minnie Highway 4.

No comment.

Tinker Bell Devereaux - hey, I kinda like that one.

Max Sunset and Tinker Bell Deveraux are destined to be together, I feel.

Mischa Park.

Karate Hampshire.

Molly Broadbridge.

(we only had goldfish as pets)

Phooey. The floor is open. He can defend himself if he chooses.

Thanks -

"Butch Carson"

EXT: Daytime. OVERHEAD CLOSEUP of a shadow of a semi's cab on pavement, shimmering. PULL BACK to see semi going up a highway, and a sign on the right HWY 4 NORTH.

Voice-over (woman's voice): Minnie Highway 4. That's me.

EXT: Daytime. MED SHOT as Semi pulls into truckstop motel parking lot. As it passes, we see MINNIE HIGHWAY 4 standing outside the motel. Everything about her screams "Truckstop whore!": thin bleached blonde hair, hard eyes in a face with too much make-up, flimsy cheap lace top over short skirt.

VOICE OVER (Cont): It's not just my name; it's my job.

EXT: MED SHOT of motel office. TRUCKER has checked in and gotten his key. He leaves the office.

EXT: CLOSE SHOT of sidewalk just outside the motel office. MINNIE HIGHWAY 4 has just freshened her lipstick as TRUCKER walks past her towards his room.

VOICE OVER (Cont): Welcome to my world. I'm here to make your stay... memorable.

EXT: LONG SHOT of sidewalk leading to TRUCKER'S room, and MINNIE HIGHWAY 4 following him.

*************

H'mm. This could be the opening scene of a pr0n movie. Or a slasher pic.

Piper Farmstead

None of that city slicker pron, nosiree.

Queenie Magnolia.

Spence Birch

We didn't have street names in the village I grew up in (or indeed p0rn, that I know of)

Watty Chapin.

Sigh.

Pickles Seaman

whew. that's almost too funny.

Lafayette Main, or maybe Judy Seaford.

Sandy Jenni. I agree with the whole wrong pet gender complaint above...

Are you calling Sandy Koufax's masculinity into question?

Dirk Axelrod

I knew a guy in real life whose name was Dick Peters. He had some track records at my high school, which...I think I'd go as "Richard" or "Rick".

At work, there was Joe Cox and his right-hand man, Harold Swallow. Who, disappointingly (only in hindsight (so to speak; Jane! Stop this crazy thing!), more's the pity), were the constant butt of jokes.

JAAANNNNE!!

My apologies for that last; I don't know what came over me.

JAAAAAAAANNNNNNNEEEE!

JAAANNNNE!! JAAAAAAAANNNNNNNEEEE!

you're playin a game you never can win, girl.

Other good names I have met in real life:

Harry Weiner (more than one).

Harry Nuckols

just for yucks, apparently, this dink is toying with the idea of "outing" Jamil Hussein.

Hussein's immediate assassination will surely teach the wicked AP to use pseudonymous sources! ha!

Friend of mine, in an international job, was blessed by his monolinguistic parents with the name Dick de Kok.

Dick de Kok

ha :)

ouch.

We didn't have street names in the village I grew up in (or indeed p0rn, that I know of)

In the absence of street names, presumably your dwellings were named, and surely that would serve as well for the purposes of this exercise. Sid Swinery? Lady Rose Cottage? Rex the Rockery?
