Last Measure is a shock site created by members (specifically Penisbird and Rucas) of the Gay Nigger Association of America (GNAA), an Internet trolling group. Another troll in the said organization, Goat-see (named after the shock site goatse.cx) set up routines to evade pop-up blockers in Last Measure. The main page plays a voice using the Adobe Flash plugin (hey.swf) shouting, "HEY EVERYBODY, I'M LOOKING AT GAY PORNO!" at a high volume, while various famous shock site images move around in popup windows, bouncing off the sides of the screen. The voice in previous Last Measure versions was in the file fsckyou.wav.mp3
The only way to stop the popups on Windows is to manually close the browser application in the Process List via the Task Manager In many instances this will fail and the browser will respawn or the task manager will be closed. Another option for windows based systems is to press alt-f4 as it will quickly end the process. Mac users can do this, regardless of browser, by pressing Command-Q. It is also problematic to remove in Opera, as that restores sites from the previous session after it has been closed and re-opened, which restarts the process.
Goatse's hello.jpg is set as the page's background picture. At the bottom of the page is "Lastmeasure last measure last-measure nero institute", which is an attempt to get the page listed under Google. The title of the page is "Our lawyer has informed us that we need a warning. So, if you are under the age of 18 or find this offensive, please leave immediately", which is a takeoff on the text on the front page of Goatse. On one of the Last Measure pages (WRT), the text "Like what you see? Got a complaint? Email wrt AT forpresident DOT com." was visible. The page was suspended. The page at Zeikfried has the title "This is my LastMeasure, my FinalHope. Lovez and kissez from Zeikfried~!" The page at axisproductions has a wide, blank image at the bottom of the screen. Below it are the words "If you have a screen larger than this I'll eat my own shit. - this button shit is +1 insightful."
A primitive version of LastMeasure was conceived by Penisbird of the GNAA after playing with an AIM utility named AIM Invader. It offered Penisbird a myriad of ways to crash AIM clients. By far the most powerful crash was the "last measure" crash, which would inundate an AIM client with file transfer requests, buddy list sends, messages full of smileys and colors, until the AIM client crashed due to lack of RAM. The LastMeasure site originally consisted of Penisbird, Goatse, Tubgirl, Lemonparty, and Shitfaced Lady. But has expanded to include many other of the internets treasured icons. And with the addition of StatsMeasure, the clipboard data of thousands of unwitting victims has now been exposed for the world to see.
- Tubgirl, a picture of a woman spraying fecal matter on her face. (Rotten.com)
- Penisbird, an image of a Scarlet Macaw perched on a man's erect penis. The page contains a note from a Slashdot reader asking that the image be relocated (if not removed) because Slashdot trolls are using hyperlinks to send unsuspecting users there. The page also mentions a crude ASCII art version of the penisbird, which appears from time to time on Slashdot. (Rotten.com)

The original location, http://nero-online.org/lastmeasure/, is down, and http://nero-online.org/ was retained as a redirect to http://obelix-ies.com/~gnaa/index.php site. The whois information used to state that the registrant is "Ghey de Sax", living on "16356 Rolloffle Avenue", "Sudbury, Massaschussets".
Previously, nero-online.org's WHOIS information has stated that the registrant is "Mike Cunt", and that he lives on Goa Tse Dr., South Dildo, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The "drive" is a takeoff on goatse.cx and the town refers to "dildo". The registrant name and street address is an obvious fake, although South Dildo does exist.
