    CDA decision may be wrong

    IANAL, but, IIRC, section 230 of the CDA only protects the operators of an unmoderated site, or one in which posts are never deleted.

Of course, apart from the comment about looking like he was being fisted by a large ape, the CDA is not actually relevant in this case.

    Can we write a story in a less professional way?

    Seriously, why does this story only have a "More by this author" link? I want to vote for the opposite!

    Fisted - Ape

    Yep, thats certainly the expression of a man being fisted by an ape. The question is was it a lowland gorilla or a highland gorilla, inquiring minds need to know !

    It's a whole new world

    Thank you for introducing me to the world of Anthony DiMeo III - a great new way to waste a Friday morning.

    Is it just me, or just he look and write remarkably like Aleksey "Impossible is Nothing" Vayner?

    IT Angle

    Not sure the IT angle one on this one. Is it the Website, or the expression he has on his face of being fisted by a gorilla? The reason I ask is I've seen many a time this look, usually after the consultants hand a project over to the poor buggers who have run it...

    The IT angle is

    To do with laws about posting things on websites and stuff.

    Where is the iPhone angle though?

    One expression

    Surely if you're only going to have one expression it'd be a better one than that.

    He looks like he's about to start drooling. Reminded me of Zoolander.

    Also is it actually possible to be shorter than Sly Stallone.

    I don't think the model credentials hold up...

    Ape Complaint?

    Apparently there was a complaint from the gorilla in question here. The picture seems to have disappeared from the website.

    I collect gorilla fisting rapture pictures as a hobby. I am soooooo disappointed.
