Blogger To Ban Porn,No, Wait, Now It's Not

Some tight ass up in the higher reaches of Google thought it would be the right thing to do and ban porn from the Blogger platform altogether after years of just requiring a warning page if you showed more skin than they thought was proper.
That decision lasted a whopping three days before they were inundated by comments from Bloggers who use the platform.

No, I didn't bother.
If they were going to go that far, I was just going to switch to Wordpress.

I've done it before but I don't like Wordpress because it doesn't let you do a lot of things to the layout.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Apparently Google bloggers like to post porn. A lot.

Just three days after saying sexually explicit material would be banned from public Blogger forum sites, Google is backing down. Faced with "a ton of feedback," Google said Friday that it instead will "step up enforcement" against commercial and illegal porn.

Google spokeswoman Katie Watson said the company does not disclose how many Blogger users it has nor how many of them would have been affected by the policy change.

On Tuesday, Google warned Bloggers that effective March 23 any site hosting nude pictures would be switched to private mode — only available to the authors and invited viewers. That ban came the same day that social forum and news site Reddit said it would remove explicit photos, videos and links if the person pictured hadn't consented to the image being posted.

In an online post Friday, Google's Blogger said longtime users thought it was unfair to suddenly change the policy. The company also was swayed by users who say posting sexually explicit content is part of expressing their identities.

Sexually explicit content on Blogger will still be marked by an "adult content" warning. And Google's Blogger policy does not allow users to post nudes or sexually explicit images of someone else without that person's consent.

Shit, everyone knows that's why the internet was invented in the first place, to to make porn and pictures of cats easy to find .

Have some boobs to celebrate.

Your Vote Counts

For nothing.

Congress ended the crisis over funding for the Department of Homeland Security after Speaker John A. Boehner abandoned the GOP’s strategy of trying to tack on restrictions to President Obama’s immigration plan.

Conservatives were outraged that the embattled speaker declined to continue their fight against the president's actions on immigration that many Republicans view as an overreach of executive authority. They staged a series of procedural votes to prevent final approval. But the bill’s final passage allows GOP leadership to move away from a prolonged standoff that threatened the party’s image as Homeland Security funds were set to expire at the end of the week.

The vote was 257-167 after Boehner was forced to leave his conservative flank behind and reach across the aisle for support from Democrats led by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi – something Boehner has been reluctant but repeatedly forced to do on major legislation.

“I am as outraged and frustrated as you at the lawless and unconstitutional actions of this president," Boehner told his majority as he announced his decision at a private meeting early Tuesday, according to a person in the room not authorized to discuss the session on the record.

But facing another midnight Friday deadline to fund the department or risk a shutdown, giving in was the best course of action, he said.

"I believe this decision -- considering where we are -- is the right one for this team, and the right one for this country," Boehner said.

Never Fails

I couldn't help but over-hear two guys in their mid-twenties while sitting at the bar last night.

One of the guys says to his buddy: "Man you look tired.”
His buddy says:
“Man I'm exhausted. My girlfriend and I have sex all the time.
​ She's after me 3 and 4 times a day,​I just don't know what to do."

A fellow about my age,
sitting a couple of stools down,also overheard the conversation.

He looked over at the two young men and with the wisdom of years says:
"Marry her. That'll put a stop to that shit."
