CNNMoney:

The trick is typically used for pranks or harmless notes, but Bitcoin discussion boards lit up on Monday with the news that someone took advantage of it for a nastier purpose: adding encoded links that claim to lead to porn sites, some featuring children. (CNNMoney verified that the links exist in Bitcoin’s database, but did not check to see if they actually went to child porn sites.)

Yeah, that’s probably for the best.
