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.
