In February 2006, Jeeves was retired by the folks at Ask.com. It was a sad experience, but it happened. Back then, the Ask blog thanked Jeeves for all his work and set up a special site at (WARNING, do not click this yet) www.jeevesretirement.com/desk/.

That website was devoted to Jeeves Retirement journal. What Jeeves, the fictional character, did while on his vacation, where he went, what he enjoyed, etc. Ask.com linked to this site from their home page, for a noticeable period of time, back then. Here is a picture:

Ask Jeeves Retires & Now Is Porn Star

I noticed via a comment left on this site, that Jeeve's retirement site is now a porn site. Yes, a pornographer picked up the domain when it expired, possibly two years after it was first set up.

So is Jeeves now a porn star?
