    The link seems safe for work, unless you click where it says ‘click if you dare’ (paraphrase). Which I will do later, merely out of curiosity, mind you, to see whether my salacious guess is correct.

    Cole seems expert at a certain kind of web surfing. I never find stuff like this.

    Oh no you don’t. I do a lot of consulting for marketing teams, and generally the people handling the social media functions are either interns or right out of college. I am not saying they are dumb – there is just very little recognition of what is private, public, or generally unacceptable.

  23. 23
    Baud says:

    The notes at the bottom of the Buzzfeed article explain a lot:

    • The photo was actually tweeted at the airline earlier today.
    • The photo was also trending on Reddit’s very NSFW shock imageboard Spacedicks last week.
    • The graphic picture is originally from a German-language amateur porn and shock site.

    Sure, but what if the employee who did it was malicious rather than careless?

    If a disgruntled employee deliberately crashed the US Airways web site, or deleted important data, then they would probably end up in court. But if a disgruntled employee willfully posts that image there’s nothing US Airways can do beyond firing the poster?

    I’m thinking what happened was the social media person was, stupidly, browsing inappropriate sites with work computer (or working from home and logged in with personal computer). Copied and pasted inappropriate link to someone, then went back to “work” and fumbled the copy part, pasted the old URL from clipboard, and went to lunch. Took 22 minutes until it was taken down…

    GOP is just started a new chapter of ts outreach to women with news that 100 and 50 years ago, they were pioneers in getting women elected to office. So, give them a few weeks. OK? Impatience is rampant among the BJ commentariate.

    Blackburn: GOP ‘Led The Fight For Women’s Equality’

    “It is Republicans that have led the fight for women’s equality. Go back through history, and look at who was the first woman to ever vote, elected to office, go to Congress, four out of five governors.”

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/l.....s-equality

    Edit: to be fair, I think 4 of 5 governors is now, but still, she is arguing against any further efforts at equal pay, along with trolling using incorrect analysis of WH salaries (which the GOP BSers would whine about if used against them… well in fact they have whined about the sloppy analysis they use for the WH when it is turned against their position.)

    @Baud: Yeah, that part was fun. (And I wasn’t really pouting.)

    @ Everyone else who answered about showing her face in the photo:

    The lady in question had her legs up in the air and was showing everything. EVERYTHING.

    Seriously, that can’t have been her best side, so to speak. I can only imagine how low your opinion of yourself has to be before you think making that photo public is a fine idea. No friends? No family? No job? Never mind, I’m probably overthinking it.

    Are you sure making the photo public was her idea? There’s a lot of stuff out on the internet that was originally intended for private use but that was published without consent.

    No friends? No family? No job?

    Maybe that is your job, and your friends and family know about it. It does actually happen.

    @Roger Moore: Okay, I’ll give you that.

    Somewhere out there is a Polaroid of me in my 20s wearing only a pair of hiking boots. (Getting ready for a trip with my partner, trying on my boots, lots of laughter, you had to be there.)

    Hopefully that will never be my 15 minutes of fame.

    Edit: Note to self… always stay on good terms with ex-lovers.

    Yeah, no kidding. I’ve read about situations where some ex-boyfriend puts naked pictures of his ex-girlfriend up on the internet. That sort of thing is horrible. Once the picture is taken it’s out of your control. You just have to hope the other person/people who have access to it are kind and decent people, not the kind who would do something like that.

    OT, but kind of worth pointing out. From Think Progress: Wisconsin Republican Committee Votes To Uphold ‘Wisconsin’s Right… To Secede’
    That’s the GOP for you: So patriotic, they can’t wait to leave, and so cheap, they won’t even pay for a flight out.

    Considering Wisconsin was a state that FOUGHT for Union back in the War Against Southern Stupidity, this is telling everyone just how deep and how perverse that Southern Strategy has overtaken the entire Republican Party. Thanks a bunch, Richard Nixon, the gift that keeps on giving…

    @satby: Oh Lord, the memory you just dislodged…

    One of my college buddies was assigned a random roommate at the start of our sophomore year at Clemson. I forget what the guy’s name was but he hailed from somewhere just inland from Myrtle Beach (Conway, I think) and as such very much lacked a certain refinement of character. His job all through high school had been working at the local Fotomat. And as a result, he had several shoeboxes full of the most poorly lit & posed, yet exceptionally graphic, sex acts you’ve ever seen. He just loved to fish out those boxes and pass them around later in evenings after many beers had been consumed. It was my understanding that for every naughty picture he processed a double was made for his stash.

    So yeah, I can second that folks in the heartland do greatly enjoy explorations in topology. At least back in the 80’s.

    @Roger Moore: yes. And there is a subset that gets off on knowing strangers will see their homemade porn.
    What used to be a bit odd was that there’d be family pictures (birthdays, Christmas, vacation, etc) on the same roll. So common that it stopped being creepy (as long as it was consenting adults. The other stuff went straight to the cops.)
