thumbs up Cleared all the orphaned attachments

Post by Enigma » Sat Nov 27, 2021 8:45 am

None of them were tied to a post, and I don't delete posts, so the only logical conclusion is that somebody has been using the site to host images.

The weird thing is it was all, like, tiny pictures of vikings and shit.

Yeah it was weird. Like little 50x50px images. I should have saved a few of them or attached them all to a post.

How big were the files? I remember reading a common trick that pedos used to do was to hide a compressed image in another picture so it couldn't be seen at a glance. I wonder if someone was using this as a porn dump?

hmm I never looked into the compression trick to be honest so I don't know the size.

I just ended up disabling them completely. It has to be someone using here as an imagine host for some reason.
