    This is but a hypothesis. But it is the best explanation I can come up with. I want to thank Tom Turner, Bruce Lee and John MacGregor for their help. Hope you don't mind me posting your names guys. I posted a picture here on TM's Lounge. The picture was a silly parody of children's books. Had a couple of responses to the post. I was in a hurry and I just posted the url with the [i mg][/ img]
    brackets. I forgot to delete the url after the thread had run its course. The owner of the site decided he didn't like me using his picture (bandwidth reasons) and changed the content of the url. This explains why the the post was benign until recently. IT IS MY FAULT. Proper internet etiquet requires that if one is going to use another's uncopyrighted picture that one must first download the image into one's computer. Then the image can be uploaded to the poster's website and then used in posts on forums, etc. That way the original owner's bandwidth isn't wasted. As you know some people on the internet can be pretty malicious. The original owner of a pic may change the content of the url. Hence a url showing a picture of a book can be switched by the original owner into porn. The unknowing poster's thread will then show the porn pic instead of the original photo. I hope this makes sense. It is very very embarrasing for me to have this happen due to my error. But I thought it might be informative to the group if I posted about it. From here on if i post a picture it will be a one that I have downloaded and then uploaded to my own website. I offer my sincerest apologies to any were offended by the disgusting pic.
