Now that I have Firestats working, I can browse the incoming hits and see what brought them here.
This post gets a lot of hits.
Somehow, I don’t think they are coming here to read the newspaper column that I linked to, oh, so long ago. Anyway, the link has expired.
Back when I was an AOLer, I was active in the AOL newsgroups (AOL did, indeed, at that time, have internal newsgroups that were accessible only within AOL). From time to time, we would get drive-by posters who wanted to know, “Where’s the pr0n?” I always had one answer for the pr0n seekers. “If you can’t find it on your own, you ain’t ready for it.”
Honestly, anyone who can’t find pr0n on the innertubes is not ready to use a computer!
(Many of the regulars from the old AOL newsgroups can be found at alt.aol.tricks. They are actually a pretty nice group of people. I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t kept up with them, and that’s my loss, not theirs. Of course, like any newsgroup, it gets its share of random spam. That’s what filters are for.)
