Velociraptor Chews Script Kiddies Who Attacked Bicycle.net

A few weeks ago, some script kiddies thought of me and this website as a “six foot turkey” that they could hack and use to steer traffic to a malware site. It pained me to see Google print the warning “this site may harm your computer”. No more. I found the small chink in our armor and have hardened bicycle.net’s security. Today we got a clean bill of health from Google and StopBadware.org. If you linked to us before, we’d like to encourage you to do so again.

Dr. Alan Grant: Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this “six foot turkey” as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex, he’ll lose you if you don’t move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes… he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this… a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the the middle toe. He doesn’t bother to bite your jugular like a lion, say… no no. He slashes at you here… or here… or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is… you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know… try to show a little respect.
Jurassic Park

Indeed, show a little respect.

I am Velociraptor and I approved this message. Right after eviscerating the trolls who’d hurt bicycle.net.

I’m looking forward to getting back to my usual diet of cycling humor.
