Naked and Petrified
Naked and Petrified was the pseudonym of a tenacious and successful Internet troll on Slashdot. His method was to invariably link whatever topic was being discussed to the idea of a "naked and petrified" stone statue to which he was supposedly sexually attracted, commonly involving the statue being smothered in grits. Actress Natalie Portman, the main female star of The Phantom Menace, was a common target of this supposed affection.
The moniker is most likely a reference to a scene in The Rocky Horror Picture Show in which the heroes are all turned into naked statues for amusement and titillation.
The effects of the troll were minimised when Slashdot instituted a moderation system for hiding these posts from most users.
