    That's kinda funny... Google must have grown some morals after getting busted helping illegal drug websites advertise on Google. WIRED just had a story about it, Google had to pay $500 million at the end of it. (http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/05/google-pharma-whitaker-sting/all/)

    Sounds like a good opportunity for someone else to take over.
  4. Removing adult content from blogger seems like a trial run to removing adult content from the web, and why not since google seems to be the biggest shareholder of the net right now. Do you really think google owes you something because you have a porn site with millions of backlinks? You may own your adult/porn site, but in the end, google pretty much owns the internet. Seems like porn is being phased out, first tumblr, now blogger, whos next, the WWW?
