Boobies indeed.

However, in the interests of research, I checked the site and it's gone. So, no

I hate it when these vultures take over legit domain names for porn, but I have to ask, why didn't these boneheads read their mail? Domain registrars do send out domain expiry notices...

Meshman: Hey, you snooze, you lose. Domains expire and need to be renewed, or else they become free agents. Tough titty.

What bugs me is the AOL mouthpiece's use of the verb "hijacked" - no one hijacked the domain name. It became available because the dopey original owners let the registration lapse.

So the Turks hijacked 100percentgirls.com? Are they going to fly it into AOL HQ?

If the name registration expired and the owner was not smart enough to renew it before expiration, grabbing the name can hardly be called hijacking.

From reading the piece, one could get the impression that PBS Kids was a pr0n site. Ah, your tax dollars at work.

EQAddict got hit by the filter! HA ha!

Don'tcha just hate when that happens?

Worse than "hijacked", the AOL flack claimed that the Turkish site "violated our Terms of Service" agreement. Yeah, I'm sure that every random foreign porn site is careful to sign AOL's ToS before starting business, because, after all, AOL is the internet!

boobies!

The kids' page was accessible to anyone on the Internet, not just AOL's 32 million subscribers.'


Pretend I can be bothered to link to the 'obvious' tag

You can also pretend I put the first ''' in, too...

AOL blocks a lot of the good usenet sites.....

All is fair in love and boobies.

The story (for those of you who read) suggests that the National Geographic is NOT pornographic.

In my youth I whacked off to Nat Geo more than any other publication!

Go AOHell!

Oompaloompa...you wacked off to old tribal women and young girls? You're grossin' me out.

Spankin' to pics of 'The Bushwomen of the Kalahari' was one of the more memorable times of my 'formative years'.Use of that plate in their lower lip was still WELL beyond my scope at the time, however 'times change'...

That and spankin' to Kristy McNichol [long before she went, you know, *funny*??]

If the new owners were English (GB) they could SUE Yahoo and AOL for the use of the word highjacked. The domain was no more highjacked than if you stopped paying rent and your landlord let your flat out to a new tenant. Think of AOL as giant NET FLYPAPER, the idiots are attracted to the lights and smell, become immeshed, never to bother the real web again. All is good :)

This is similar to a sensationalist news story in the British press today which says that British children are more likely to access (or be able to access) porn sites than European kids. The only reason for this is that most porn sites are American/in English. Goddamn Daily Mail.
Sorry, I know that was irrelevant but I haven't been able to rant at anyone about it today.

surpise surprise... AOL chatrooms are THE PLACE FOR PORN.

"so easy to use, no wonder it's #1!"

[obvious]

Ok... That isnt an Amusing tag... I am, unfortunately, an AOL user... And that desurves about fifty three minus eleven OBVIOUS tags...

And a HERO tag to whomever can assasinate AOL Administration!

I remember my old lame days,firing up the 386Dx33 with Windows 3.1,logging into AOL,and trying to browse for pr0n with my EGA screen(I was poor,sue me),then all 4MB of memory in the system getting filled up and *BOOM* crash.

NkThrasher: Rule #1 of Teh Intarweb: NEVER admit you are an AOL user. NEVER. EVER. Not if someone is holding a gun to your head. Let me repeat, one more time, very slowly. NEVER...ADMIT...YOU...USE...AOL.
