I found a quite interesting blog that has a few articles about Emacs, my favourite editor. However, I was disappointed to see that one of such articles was referring to a porno web site.
The article was showing an image of Emacs displaying, in turn, an image of a girl wearing a swimsuit, so nothing really scaring...
I thought she was a model. The article continued discussing how to enable Emacs loading and displaying multi media files, and assumed the user has a collection of the shown girl's video files. I was not aware of who the girl was (oh my!), but luckily the references at the end of the article provided a link to her official web site. As I wrote, I was thinking she was a model, and therefore I clicked the link and immediatly the traffic cop of my employeer blocked my web request.
Not so bad, commercial traffic cops usually get wrong on a lot of web sites and contents.
I totally forgot the incident and the web site.
After a few days, while surfing the web at home, I picked up again the Emacs article and therefore decided to click again on the above web site to discover who the miss really is.
Well, she is a porn star!
Now I'm angry.
While using top model images is fine for me, I believe that using and redirecting readers to porn sites is totally wrong. Moreover, I don't want my employeer to record even a single click by myself against a porn site, and in fact I never browse sites that are not technical in nature when at work.
As readers can imagine, I'm not posting any backlink to the original article, neither I'm going to provide the name of the porn star here.
What is really fun, is that I was thinking to collaborate with the blog author to make some more complete articles about Emacs.
Sorry pal, you loose an opportunity!
