I think you were hacked. Someone else had this happen to them. I think if you file a complaint with LJ they can fix it. Not sure about the steps involved, though, sorry.

Well someone else said they see the original image so now I'm just totally annoyed. Sigh.

Clear your cache, it should solve your problem. If not, try deleting and reuploading the icon in question.

Well I'm not even on my computer. And someone else just said they can see the original icon, not the two girls. So maybe I'll wait until I get home and try it again.

LJ has been having long-running problems with this. Sometimes users are randomly displaying other people's icons. Even weirder, only certain blocks of LJ can even see that it's a different icon. I tried to show my friend a funny icon a few weeks ago and it was something completely different for her - even when we went to the user's userpic's page.

It's weird and annoying but not something to worry about.

ETA: For that matter, the icon I see *is* the "shut the hell up time" one. It's just a weird LJ glitch.

Seriously??? It's not two smiling teenage girls dressed in green shirts? Because *that* image sure doesn't convey the same intentions as a grumpy Rodney. *G*

Hee! It's really not! Isn't that incredibly weird? It has something to do with quadrants of service. We're in different ones and see different things. Some of the people reading your post will see the first icon and some will see the other. Deleting and reuploading *might* make a difference, but I honestly wouldn't bet on it.

People have been bitching like crazy for months now, but it's very, very low on the lj priority list.

Also, woo! New story! I am psyched and adding it to my ereader as we speak!

Well, I'm home now and the userpic is back to normal on my computer here, which leads me to the entirely narrow minded conclusion that if it's right in my universe, the rest of the multiverses looking at the summer camp girls don't really matter. *G*

I keep worrying that when I post about serious things like antisemitism, some people are actually seeing a really pornographic icon or a cute baby or something.

Uh, yeah, that would no doubt be bad. I guess it's a good thing I don't post about anything more serious than crappy writing on SGA. *G*

This actually happened to me a couple of months ago. I don't really change my icon, but one day I log on to see some weird kind of cartoon dog thing in it's place. It was bizzare. When I went to delete that one and put my one back up, icon had been deleted from my LJ.

But when I viewed my profile page, it was the eye icon.

I got it sorted eventually...unless everyone else can still see the cartoon dog and I'm just seeing the eye...um...*meep*

I'm just going to wait until I get home and see what it looks like there... and live in ignorant bliss if it's back to normal. *G*

I've has that happen to me. On comments, and on my own journal, sometimes whatever icon I'm using it replaced by a little gothic cartoon girl thing.

You know, if it was something cool, I might not mind it so much. But when it's a picture from summer camp, it gets a little annoying. *G*

This is why I love computers so much! They have such wacky quirks. Have you ever been going down your flist's postings and noticed that the embedded videos don't correspond to what has been written about them, but if you go to the poster's LJ it'll be okay? That is one of my favorite LJ spasms.

You know, I love my LJ but sometimes they just drive me nuts with the quirks. But as big as they are, I suppose an occassional hickup just goes with the territory.

yea, I was getting a funky 'that's not MY icon' problem a bit ago too. And it was a nice image of Gillian Anderson too, but it wasn't one I've ever seen before or loaded or had.... so... I just ignored it figuring it was a glitch, and now it's back to showing what it should on my posts. So, I have no idea, but I know what you mean.

See, I might not mind Gillian Anderson so much. It's the two teenage girls at summer camp that I get stuck with. If it had been a cool pic, I might not mind so much. *G*
