Less than an year after Google began cracking down on Blogger blogs that make money off of adult-themed ads, the company has banned sexually explicit material from the platform. The ban will come into effect next month.

Doesn't impact me, but AFAIK the NSFW blogger sphere is as large as any of them (it is easier to aggregate porn than actually write original content). I'm sure this morning's service notification woke more than a few people up prior to the obligatory coffee.

"However this doesn’t mean a blanket ban -- Google said it will still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, although it will be mandatory for these types of blogs to show an interstitial warning to remain public."


But, but, but, what about NET NEUTRALITY???!!!!!

I once saw how disgusting the adult world can be when accidentally an anti-bullying blog, aimed at younger students, allowed it's domain to lapse and in it's place was porn ransomware domain hijacker.

On the hierarchy of Rule 34 specimens, smut-based ransomware doesn't even qualify for consideration. Morally repugnant considering the domain, certainly. But if you want a real shock story, there was a vine someone posted to twitter the other day showing [If you post something like this again, you will be banned. You have been warned.].

Regarding the stuff in bolding, either that's what you saw on Twitter, or you posted something reprehensible that Techspot deleted and typed the bolded wording.

Cmbjive, the bolded sentence was not done by TechSpot. As far as I can tell it was done by davislane1.

Just remember Blogger is potentially NSFW, recommend the site for our kids, and we will all be fine. Yeah, that is the punch line is it not? Trying to figure out which sites are still safe for our kids and keeping them that way.
