fast forward a few years later, i begin to notice that these thumbnails are totally overwhelming google image search on fairly normal search queries. I forget which TLD it was (one of the country TLDs) but all of the sites on that entire TLD seems to have become completely owned, with google image search showing a seemingly endless amount of them. some of the sites had open directories, which included many rendered image files of random shapes, along with something like 'iv023inveq.php' which actually generated the images. unfortunately, the actual source code of the PHP file was un-viewable.. but at least knowing it was PHP that was generating the images was good to know.
in 2015, i came across a nice example of classic blog spam after google image searching 'effexor rolex' on a hacked blog (which is now now offline) which actually let the end user change the variables of the rendered gif on the fly.. through url paremeters. the default image, which said 'effexor alcohol' would generate a new version every time you refreshed it. (shown animated here to demonstrate a variety of some of the output). you could make it say anything you wanted by changing the url of the image.. e.g. instead of effexor_alcohol.gif it said http%3A%2F%2Fffog%2Esdf%2Eorg%2Fchat.gif the image would render as . I decided now would be a good time to try and recreate something like this in PHP. Googling a bit pointed me to GD for PHP and everything finally came into place. THIS was the golden ticket--all of these generative images are deinitely using this very thing. It's even got that ominous font as its default text font.

A simple modification to the source served as a nice little generative logo to a small blog inspired by these kinds of images.. Effexor 4 Dogs ..

Update: Google apparantly is going to start clamping down on hacked blogs from their search results. Pretty sad if you ask me ;_;
