L5 on myspace
Tired of GC vs EHSSQ? Here’s something to take your mind off it: PORN. Or, to be more accurate: the pornbots who appear to be slipping past someone’s rather porous borders at this Myspace fan site for Legacy 5 [NOTE: If you’re going to get up in arms about seeing suggestive photos of trampy teenage girls vampy for the camera and, well, doing other assorted things together, don’t click this link. Seriously, you’ve been warned]. Unless I missed the memo about a new “adult video ministry” somebody launched, this can’t be good for anyone, except maybe the pornbots.
Now, you might be saying to yourself, this is no big deal. Not like that Gold City outtake on youtube. All this is, is just some hapless fan site administrator who inadvertently let some porn posts get through (and my interns tell me this is not as difficult to do as you might think, especially if you’re getting spammed right healthily, which the interns complain about happening to them all the time around here … they tell me it’s especially challenging to keep the robospammers and pornbots at bay if you’re a particularly lazy intern who approves most of the pending comments using a handheld device whose tiny screen complicates reading and sifting comments, even moreso while in the car or in an elevator or while trying to cook). But I frankly think it would make for much more incendiary discussion and endless cross-talk in coments-thread flame wars if someone blamed, oh, … say, David Bruce Murray. After all, he DID urge southern gospel music to become a leader in innovative uses of digital technology online, didn’t he? Blogs are the devil in the hell of the internet! The Devil and Hell, I telleth thee. (Insert favorite cherry picked scripture here)
Update: Scott Fowler writes to say that L5 has contacted the site administrator and strongly encouraged him to remove the porn and police the site more vigilantly. Fwiw.
Later update: Aaron Swain, operator of the L5 myspace fan page, writes:

I run that site, and I check the Myspace nearly every day, what with all the friend requests coming in. I wrote Scott back and apologized, because I did not realize such things were on there. I deleted the user who posted them and deleted the comments. […] the problem is solved, and […] I never meant for something like this to happen.
As a side note, I don’t control the comments posted, but I’m gonna set it so that I have to approve comments before they are put on the page. Apparently, people are hacking and posting them.
