Google’s “This Site May Be Hacked” Warning Too ‘Pessimistic’!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access Google’s HELP page on dealing with this — from BOTH sides.

Getting an e-mail from Google (if you happened to be registered with them via ‘Google Webmaster Tools‘) that one of your sites may be hacked is akin to getting a very hard kick to your ‘goolies’

Well I got that kick in the goolies in mid-December. Google insisted that my semi-retired ‘Popes-and-Papacy‘ Website had been hacked! Wow.

They cited two pages with pornographic page names (i.e., URL addresses) — the names even more graphic than I, with my liberal views on such matters, would consider. But I could NOT find these supposed newly inserted pages! They were NOT there and from what I could see were NEVER there.

Basically it was (and I am trying to be nice) a ‘False Positive‘. Google claiming the site was hacked when it never was.

I checked and checked and checked again. Those two pages did NOT exist. Site had NOT been hacked. Site was clean. Site was good.

So I appealed using the prescribed procedures. A few days later Google confirmed that they too could not find the supposed hacked content — BECAUSE it was never there. It took about 3 weeks but eventually the ‘hacked’ warning was taken off against ‘Popes-and-Papacy’. That was a relief. Luckily I don’t do much on that Website these days. But this could have been devastating IF it had been on one of my active Websites or blogs.

So a heads up. IF you get this kick in the goolies IT may not be as bad as Google made it out to be.

Topless Update — Two In January 2016 National Geographic & Very First Google Doodle.

by Anura Guruge

Two topless photos in the January 2016 ‘National Geographic‘ right on the heels of the one in the December 2015 issue.

First ‘non-tanned’ (read ‘caucasian’) female to be shown topless in ‘National Geographic‘ as far as I know.

Very subtle. You can’t hardly tell. She is ‘dainty’. SMILE.

National Geographic‘ published 4 topless pictures in 2015 — all of them very tanned females. See below.

Per my reckoning, with these two in the January 2016 issue, ‘National Geographic’ has published 7 topless pictures since 2014. BUT this could be coming to an end soon now that conservative Fox News owns NatG.

Today’s very artistic aborigeni Google Doodle for ‘Australia National Day 2016‘ is the first ever Google Doodle to show a topless female, ironically, as was invariably the case with ‘National Geographic’ it had to be a very tanned lady. SMILE. I, for one, would not have had any problems, whatsoever, whatsoever, if they did a topless Doodle featuring a Sheila. SMILE.

New Hampshire’s Craziest Law — Ban On Collecting Seaweed At Night?

by Anura Guruge


Click here to access the U.K. “Daily Mail” original.

This article in the U.K. “Daily Mail” (the newspaper I still read everyday) about the “Craziest Laws By State” is definitely worth perusing. I had read a similar one a few years ago but had forgotten all of them.

The Maine law about no Christmas decorations after January 14 makes sense and should be applauded because there is also a fire risk if the decorations, especially dry trees, are indoors.

I am sure that tens of thousands of New Yorkers, right now, are breaking the law — the one that forbids the wearing of slippers after 10pm.

Some are downright crazy. Check them out.
