Jeeves is now a Porn Star
Way back in 2006, the eponymous butler behind Ask Jeeves was retired so that the site could rebrand as “Ask.com”. The site blogged about the change, but they also set up a page called Jeeves Retirement Journal, linked from the homepage, where Jeeves, the fictional character, could post about what he did in his retirement, where he went, what he enjoyed, etc.
Now, two years after the site was set up, something’s gone terribly wrong. The page is now a porn site (link removed – see comments). One of two things may have happened. Either a spammer picked up the domain two years after its registration, when it lapsed, or Jeeves’ retirement fund was running low and he’s decided to do something more… creative… with his website.

I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your creative writing ability has inspired me.
WHY IS THE PORN SITE LINKED TO A WEBSITE SHOWING WOMEN GETTING RAPE?!?!
click on the link right before NSFW.
Ah. my limited checking of the site didn’t reveal that. Apologies. I’ve removed the link.
