1998 stupid web tricks

Several months ago I posted to my LJ about visual icons, and happened to include the band H.I.M.'s Heartagram logo. I'd copied the image from wherever to my site, and linked to it there.

In looking at traffic reports, I noticed that there were a ton of sites who were hotlinking to that file, almost all of the H.I.M. fans. Notwithstanding that the file was misnamed HeartAngle.jpg instead of Heartagram.jpg. So I replaced HeartAngle.jpg with a Goatse, with hilarious, if cruel, effects:

Myspace Victim 2
MySpace Victim 3 -- especially unfortunate
