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. – Chenmunka Jun 16 '16 at 8:24

    I think everyone must be reminded of how horrible the 70's were. Be glad you didn't live through them. – user1228 Jun 16 '16 at 13:53

    The photo @KasraRahjerdi has was handed down from me. – Jason Punyon Jun 16 '16 at 16:32
  • @Kasra why? You just realised it's a picture of half naked man? ;) – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Jun 16 '16 at 18:41

    Which half offends you? – random Jun 16 '16 at 18:58
  • @ShadowWizard Nope, I love half-naked men (esp 70s Connery), i'm just sad we might have to change it! – Kasra Rahjerdi Jun 16 '16 at 19:01
  • @Kasra don't give up! You're strong! :-D – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Jun 16 '16 at 19:56

    When did StackApps become a "professional" site? Why are you browsing the site during work hours in the first place? – yannis Jun 16 '16 at 21:11
  • @JasonPunyon the pic is 404 now, was it this picture? – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Apr 7 '17 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.

  • Expect down votes from Sean Connery fans ... – rene Dec 6 '17 at 19:28
  • @rene or from people who don't like SE not taking a stand on this... (Come on... it's just humor...) – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Dec 6 '17 at 23:35

    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... – Monica Cellio Dec 7 '17 at 3:01
