Disclaimer: I am hesitant to ask this question. If it doesn't belong, let me know.
So apparently, there's a thing called an identicon and it's what makes up my profile picture. Well, I got curious and stumbled upon multiple SE answers on identicons. There's one particularly interesting one though, so I took a look on Security.SE...
On a side note, a couple of years ago a bunch of far-right politicians in Sweden were exposed spreading racist and antisemitic trash on the internet, thanks to their gravitars being bruit forced.
Naturally, I'm unsure of the validity of this statement. I've never heard of the story. Searches for "sweden identicon brute force", "politician identicon brute force", "swedish gravatar brute force", and similar have returned the SE question and answer among the first page, with no relevant results I can identify. Anders' own source doesn't seem to be relevant.
Were far-right Swedish politicians' identicons brute forced "a couple of years ago"?
Have there been any scandals of any (not limited to Sweden's) politicians' identicons been brute forced?
But why not ask this on Security.SE! With a more Security-y twist, it will surely fit there. Good question! It has been closed there.
But why not ask this on Skeptics.SE! With a more Skepticy twist, it will surely fit there. Good question! It has been criticized and almost closed there (and now deleted).
