back to article Tory MP accidentally endorses... German pr0n site

Red-faced Tory MP Francis Maude last night denied all responsibility for the content of a German SmutSite – and then quietly removed a link to it from his own personal front page. The embarrassment seems to have arisen after Francis Maude, the member for Horsham, and Henry Smith, MP for neighbouring Crawley, got together to …

I grew up in Aberlour!

So you can imagine my surprise to read my home town's name (and the whisky produced at the West end of the town) being mentioned on El Reg, and in a quote from a German smutt-site, no less!

I shall be sure to point this out to my friends who still live there :)

At least the news feed works

Right now, Mr Smith's Hustings page still proudly shows the, er, doubtful link ... right next to the automatic newsfeed linking to this very article. Modern technology at work!

Politicians checking websites?

Only now do we realise the impact of de-seating Jackie Smith: her husband would have been a shoe-in for such an important and stressful job!

this could happen to you

Actually, this is quite a common problem. Whenever a domain name is abandoned, it is immediately picked up by prOn peddlers. So any domain name set up for a time-limited cause and then released is going to have this problem.

German Pron

"Your upper body is deep, her ass postal 2 single player moves higher while the dildo slide in deeper and deeper. Swallow everything baby, he told me and pointed his cock elchat on my open mouth."

You didn't just quote that for the hell of it, did you?

Not quite

I think she posted it to have the German readership try and untranslate the mess.

My brain is imploding and I might be emotionally scarred for life. Can I sue someone?

Phwoar! "lowest common divider"

Go on, go on, say "highest common factor".

I love it when you talk functions to me!

@this could happen to you

It's not a coincidence.

The domain on our old company name ran out - the hosting company immediately put a gay porn site at that address and kept sending us letters about how it wasn't too late to renew - at ever increasing prices.

Obviously no blackmail was intended

WTF?

Sounds like...

"Your upper body is deep, her ass postal 2 single player moves higher while the dildo slide in deeper and deeper. Swallow everything baby, he told me and pointed his cock elchat on my open mouth."

Sounds like a Google web translation to me.

it's not all google translates fault

while I LOLed at your comment...

I don't think it's supposed to make sense in german either, it looks like some kind of google salting attempt. Creating a page full of unique text and porn keywords with lots of links to the sites being promoted.

Perhaps "postal 2 single player" is a typo for "portal 2 single player" and people playing that are a prime market for german porn?

An easy mistake

As clean_slate says, this always happens when domain names are allowed to lapse.

The real irony is that part of Francis Maude's job is to be in charge of the government's digital strategy.

His auto news feeder could get him into more trouble

It's still there on the Henry Smith page, alongside the link to this article, but it does open the question of how they get that auto news feed. It's rather ripe for creating "alternative stories" about said MP and having them all appear down the side of his page... :-)

Somehow I think the web designers are going to be getting a phone call in the morning about that.

Quietly?

"and then quietly removed a link to it from his own personal front page."

Surely he didn't do it quietly. There must have been the sound of the backspace key and of the mouse buttons.

I wonder what "loudly removing a link" sounds like.

So the unit of measurement of pornography is the "ream".

Consulting a dictionary, I find that (1) a ream contains a minimum of twenty quires and (2) apart from that, it's substantially worse than I thought. Ouch.

Buit a quire isn't whatever you're thinking it is - unless you work with stationery, of course. (And I don't mean just because the cupboard where you keep it locks from the inside.)

Good job he's not Scottish

Must check out the website from south of the border, sounds like it would have made another dull politicians spew a little more interesting than normal
