Adult film career
Moran's career in the sex industry began in the fall of 1999 with her first pornographic photo shoot.[2][3][6][7] At the time, she was working at a local Hooters restaurant in Jacksonville, Florida. However, she felt that the environment became degrading and she began seeking employment elsewhere. She left Hooters and began working in a variety of other jobs which included a local retail store, the County Clerk of Courts, and the Supervisor of Elections office.[3]

One day, after posting bikini photos of herself on the Internet,[2][6][7] she received email responses that led to her modeling in Miami and Los Angeles for Playboy and Hustler,[8] She found greater financial success through establishing her own online pornography site.[3][4] After moving to California, she eventually performed in over 40 mainstream porn films.[3][4] In late 2005, Crissy received new breast implants.[9]

It was reported that Moran was making nearly $15,000[5] each month through her work in the porn business, along with receipts from her successful Web site. However, in October 2006, she became a Christian and announced that she was leaving the sex industry.[3][4][6][10]

Mainstream film career
Prior to her retirement from the porn industry, Moran had a role in Nick Palumbo's theatrically released NC-17 horror film Murder-Set-Pieces (2004).[11]

In 2008, Moran appeared in the short dramatic film Oversold, which was a modern adaptation based on the Biblical story of Hosea and Gomer, in which she plays the leading role.[6][12] Director Paul Morrell had approached Moran, originally wishing her to be a consultant for the adult business side of the story. But after discussing the project with her, he realized she would be perfect in the lead role.[13]

In 2009, Moran had a role in another Paul Morell project, the indie horror film Filth to Ashes, Flesh to Dust,[14][15] which took the best elements of 70s and 80s slasher films and gave it a modern twist.

In 2010, Moran appeared in the documentary, Exxxit: Life After Porn,[16][17] which is an exploration into the personal side of the six billion dollar a year pornography industry. Other participants included Asia Carrera, Nina Hartley, Mary Carey, Houston, Randy West, Richard Pacheco, John Leslie, Amber Lynn, Seka, Raylene, Luke Ford, Bill Margold, Shelley Lubben, and Sunset Thomas. In their own words, over a dozen men and women who have retired from the porn industry, recounted their life and times in the business, and how it's led to where they ended up afterwards.
[edit] Anti-pornography advocacy

Moran currently lives in the Los Angeles area. While she left the sex industry in 2006, pornographic photos and videos taken during her time working in the adult entertainment industry continue to remain online. Although efforts to date have been unsuccessful, Moran continues to attempt to have her photos legally removed from these Web sites established by past boyfriends and business partners.[5][10]

In April 2010, Moran began working with Shelley Lubben and the Pink Cross Foundation as they set up a booth and distributed materials during the Adultcon Adult Entertainment Show in Los Angeles. Materials distributed included educational materials for individuals working in the porn industry that addressed various topics such as STDs, Cal OSHA laws, and contractor vs employee law. Religious materials distributed included Bibles, books, and various Christian literature.[18]

In addition to working with the Pink Cross Foundation, Moran has also serves on the Advisory board of Beauty from Ashes Ministries[19] and assists with local outreaches organized by Harmony Dust and Treasures Out of Darkness.[20]

Analysis of deletion - for wikigeeks only
This article was nominated for deletion on June 12, 2010, and deleted on June 20. The editors participating in the discussion voted 10-6 to keep the article, but the closing administrator essentially disregarded whether there was consensus to delete the article or not (which is the governing criterion) and decided it should be deleted. This happens among wikipedia admins squeamish about sex-related articles. The amount of news coverage of this woman is far beyond what many folks on wikipedia need to pass muster. E.g., if Crissy Moran was, say, a chef instead of a former-porn-star-turned Christian, this article would never be deleted.

In fact, this is the 3rd time this article was nominated for deletion. The first nomination, back in June 2006, resulted in a strong keep, with most editors voicing an opinion that the article be retained. A second nomination, in January 2007, failed to garner a single editor in favor of deletion. This time, however, despite numerous additional sources being added to the article, and a majority of those participating voicing that it should be kept (with valid rationales), someone who wanted to delete it, deleted it.

Fuck BP on Youtube ("Friend BP on Youtube?!!")



I just noticed this add for BP ("Friend BP on Youtube: Visit BP's page on youtube for latest gulf spill video updates. www.youtube.com/BPplc") Apparently BP has been spending big money buying up search terms and on youtube to direct people to their own narrative of their monumental fuckup oil spill. (see link, e.g.,: 1) Note that the video linked in the above graphic is rated 1 out of 5 stars, haha, BP is paying to spread their own bad publicity.

WHAT THE FUCK!

So if you stumble across one of these "Friend BP on Youtube" ads, please do not friend BP. Instead, type whereever you can find to type it "FUCK BP ON YOUTUBE"

As a corporation, BP committed a grevious fuckup in running a grossly negligent drilling operation, which led to a disaster which they completely underestimated the risk of. The liability to which BP has exposed itself it enormous, so like any huge corporation, it is fighting for its life. BP may well no longer exist within 2 years, if they are not shielded like a welfare mama from having to pay for actual damage the spill caused.

FUCK BP.

Do not "Friend BP on Youtube" BP is not your friend. It is not a good corporate citizen.

Debrahlee Lorenzana - wikipedia article

hot pictures of Debrahlee Lorenzana dudesThis is a copy of the wikipedia article on Debrahlee Lorenzana as it appeared prior to its deletion on June 14, 2010.

Debrahlee Lorenzana (born 1977) is a financial-services professional who was sacked from her banking position at the Chrysler Building branch of Citigroup in New York City in 2010 after she was allegedly warned repeatedly that her clothes were too distracting, tight, and inappropriate.[1] In turn, Lorenzana filed a lawsuit against Citigroup alleging that she was fired "as a result of the shape of her figure, such clothes were purportedly 'too distracting' for her male colleagues and supervisors to bear."[2] The suit was referred to arbitration instead of a jury trial under her employment agreement.[3]

Citigroup has stated that "Ms. Lorenzana has chosen to make numerous unfounded accusations and inaccurate statements against Citibank and several of our employees. While we will not discuss the details of her case, we can say that her termination was solely performance-based and not at all related to her appearance or attire. We are confident that when all of the facts and documentation are presented, the claim will be dismissed."[4]

Lorenzana subsequently found employment with JPMorgan Chase.[5] Lorenzana has reported receiving pressure from her new employer to stop publicizing her dismissal from Citibank.[6]

Lorenzana's story made international news in June 2010, raising discussions about lookism.[7]

[Milo adds: Subsequently, it was found, that Ms. Lorenzaza appeared in online videos of a few years vintage touting breast implant surgery, where much mirth was made of her comments that she wanted to be like a Playboy Playmate, and "tits on a stick." Because, you know, lots of guys love breast implants, but most guys on the internet are unlikely to ever mate with a woman as attractive (if somewhat misguided, perhaps a bit ditzy, and probably a bit lonely) as Ms. Lorenzana.]

[Update October 28 2010: This article appears to remain quite popular. As a quick update, in late September 2010 it was reported that Lorenzana had rebuffed requests to appear in Playboy and on reality TV shows, and was uncomfortable with the huge amount of attention placed on her, though she hoped her experience served as an example for others to stand up for their rights.'Sexy banker' Debrahlee Lorenzana has no interest in fame, Playboy - just wants to be an example (NY Daily News, 26 Sept 2010) And, like clockwork, in October 2010, a group of female Citigroup employees filed suit against the company for discrimination, and news reports cited to Lorenzana's case as a related prior event.Sex And The Citigroup: Women Sue US Bank (Sky News, 15 Oct 2010); Citigroup accused of discrimination (Telegraph, 14 Oct 2010)]

Analysis of Deletion (for wikigeeks only)

This is the sort of article that when I hear about the underlying news story, I go see whether a wikipedia article has been created, and I frequently find that it is nominated for deletion. This story received incredible amounts of press attention, though no doubt its because of the titillating content and the numerous photo galleries for which the attractive Ms. Lorenzana posed. Sex sells. The article was nominated for deletion on June 7. While the number of votes for deletion and retaining were equal, suggesting that the normal rule of "lack of consensus" and "default to keep" would apply, the closing administrator chose to delete because he found the "deletion arguments more persuasive" which simply means he applied his opinion and deleted it. This does not shock me, because a number of wikipedia editors are squeamish about articles like this, despite the fact that the press appears to find such stories highly notable. In these cases, some wikipedia administrators are reluctant to "close" the deletion discussion and make a call either way, and then the editor who does decide to finally do it is likely to be in favor of deletion.

This is not disimiliar to the story of Rachel Uchitel, which I have written about before. Uchitel's article was deleted in December 2009, but recently reappeared, only to be renominated for deletion within one hour. But I often stumble across instances of previously deleted articles that were later recreated. As of right now, the English wikipedia is growing at a rate of 1087 articles per day. Outside of unverifiable articles, hoaxes, vandalism, attacks, and spam, anything of interest to more than a few people returns in the long run. In fact, this just recently happened to Donna Simpson, who I also wrote about. Her article, once deleted, has now returned, and survived her 2nd deletion nomination. So, have no fear, Mr. Lorenzana and Ms. Uchitel (if deleted again) won't be gone forever.
