Currently, the 404 page on Stackapps looks like this: censored.

To me, it seems a little.. strange to see a half-naked guy with a gun on what is supposed to be "professional" site, and it's not really something I'd like to come across with my boss (or my parents..) looking over my shoulder. The CMs agree with me too:

Can we get rid of this guy and replace him with something else ?

    That guy is Sean Connery in Zardoz. The world would be a better place if that entire film was 404.

    I think everyone must be reminded of how horrible the 70's were. Be glad you didn't live through them.

  • @ShadowWizard Nope, I love half-naked men (esp 70s Connery), i'm just sad we might have to change it! Jun 16, 2016 at 19:01
  • @Kasra don't give up! You're strong! :-D Jun 16, 2016 at 19:56

    When did StackApps become a "professional" site? Why are you browsing the site during work hours in the first place?

  • @JasonPunyon the pic is 404 now, was it this picture? Apr 7, 2017 at 22:13

So while I was spying on hanging out in the design channel, this picture came up again and reignited disgust for some people.

It has now been removed from the page. Rest in peace, Zed...

Sean Connery as Zed in Zardoz

...May you always patrol the unfound wastelands of our hearts.

    Given the first comment in the screenshot in the question, I don't imagine that animuson is going to be happy about @Shog's edit... Dec 7, 2017 at 3:01
