MAN! That was totally weird!
Erik's sig was totally polluted with some carp. I don't know how this happened, but my guess is it had something to do with whatever site was hosting his sig image.
Here's the code of his sig line before I changed it:
I used "Quote" instead of "Code" because the code block doesn't use line breaks and the text runs a quarter mile to the right of the screen. Anyway...
Notice all the links to something called. "i.minus.com". Weird stuff here...
- there's a Reddit domain called i.minus.com: https://www.reddit.com/domain/i.minus.com/ Just looks like a bunch of carp postings
- i.minus.com won't load (server down) --> http://i.minus.com/ also --> http://issitedownrightnow.com/status/i.minus.com
So, since the entire sig was so polluted with ca-ca, I just deleted ALL and recreated the sig line completely. Erik, I couldn't even copy the image that you were using. I actually had to screenshoot it and save it to my system then upload to my Imgur to put it in your new sig line... more weirdness.
I couldn't find much about i.minus.com via search engines. Can't even do a whois. It's evidently not even a valid domain.
vtel57@ericsbane07~:$ whois i.minus.com
No match for "I.MINUS.COM".
vtel57@ericsbane07~:$ ping -c2 i.minus.com
ping: unknown host i.minus.com
Another interesting link found via Google Search: http://i.minus.com.w3snoop.com/
I would advise everyone here to inspect the source code of their own sig lines to make sure that this pollution has not affected you, also.
