I know this wasn't intentional, but the first link in this post, now redirects directly www.goatse.cx.

hmm, you can still go the old page if you turn off javascript, i'm going press reload a few dozen times.

Oh, great. I wasn't going to look at the damn link at work, when I knew it was just a fat kid eating a monstrosity-burger, and now you tell me I can't look at it at home because it might be something far worse? What to do, what to do ...

I'm sorry, this only improves the quality of my post dramatically in my opinion. I am surprised that it took MeFi to do it, being that I first saw this series of pictures around last week, saw it being bandied about on major link services (most recently memepool), but a MeFi link did it in. Yay.

Well it's deleted now.

I guess my Marathon will have an asterisk next to it when it enters the MeFi Hall Of Fame record books. I'm free to cork my posts now though.

I'm surprised that doesn't happen more often.

Just how "mighty" is Stan Chin's "sword," mathowie? And what happened to his gold star?

wow... hyperlinks with no alt tags, in a post by y2karl. I never thought I'd ever live to see the day.

then again, crunchland, every single word is hyperlinked, and to four different destinations.
