Check The "Adult Content? By Nitecruzr September 01, Occasionally, a blog owner may find his blog prefaced by one of two possible content warnings. The two warnings may look the same to some folks , but they are set - and removed - in completely different ways.
Bypass Blogger Content Warning On Offensive Blogspot Sites
Google bans 'explicit' adult content from Blogger blogs | ZDNet
Google will soon disappear blogs on its Blogger platform that don't conform to its new anti-adult policies. Every Blogger user behind an "adult content warning" page was told Monday by Google to delete sexually explicit content, or find their blog removed from every form of access except registered users. Until today, Google's Blogger platform previously allowed "images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity," and stated that "Censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression. That changed on a whim Monday when Google ripped the rug out from under its previously-compliant Blogger users, who were told they'd be disappeared if Google decided their blogs contain "sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. Rather than leave its already-restricted adult content alone, Google has told Blogger users it will be eliminating all adult blogs from public access on March 23, , and taking them out of all forms of search. Blogger blogs with adult content which -- at this time -- are findable in search will be deep-sixed from the Internet once the changes take effect. There is a wide range of users on Blogger's fresh killing floor, most of whom routinely face sexual censorship.
Google to curb sharing of adult content on Blogger
After March 23, blogs that publicly share images and videos that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity will be converted into private blogs for which access will be by invitation only. Though no content will be deleted from these blogs, private content can only be seen by the owner or administrator of the blog and people who the owner has shared the blog with, according to a post on a Google support page. For any blogs set up after March 23, Google may remove the blog or take other action if it includes adult content that breaches its rules. A number of users said Monday on forums that they had received emails from Google advising them of the change in policy. Its current rules allow adult content on Blogger, "including images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity," but requires that the blogs be marked as 'adult' in Blogger settings.
Blogger is a free service for self-expression and communication. We believe Blogger increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate, and makes possible new connections between people. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression. However, in order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted with Blogger.
