Extra! Extra!

Well, as The Guardian pointed out in an article, supplied by Faithful Reader John in a comment, that was a quick turnaround by Google after being inundated by bloggers. The article says in part:

"This comedown will be considered a victory for those who called the move a limiting of freedom of expression, with one critic being sex blogger and author Zoe Margolis, who said making blogs private effectively “kills them off”.
In The Guardian after the announcement, Margolis wrote, “Forcing millions of blogs to become private is not just a free-speech issue, or one about making adult content harder to find (Google’s own search tool makes that argument redundant), but boils down to Google sabotaging the integrity of the web – and how it functions – and it is for this reason that we need to oppose this narrow-minded and short-sighted policy.”
I believe we can thank the FCC for their ruling yesterday as well, because (according to an LA Times article) "The new rules prohibit service providers from discriminating against legal content..." And it just so happens that this is legal content:

Google's decision may have been a combination of both. Bottom line is that things will remain status quo - at least for the time being. And I sure thank you all for your support via comments and emails. It really meant a lot to me. I picked up a whole slew of new followers over the past few days. I shall provide a proper Welcome to you all on Monday.
In the meantime, enjoy your weekend! Relax and chill out...


I received this email from the Google Blogger Team late last night:

Hello everyone, 

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.  

Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

Thank you for your continued feedback.  

The Blogger Team

It would appear the backlash has worked. If you were one of the people - like me - who took the time to send a message regarding the new policy, we Bloggers of Adult Content surely thank you.

My readers are important to me. Unfettered access is the only way for a truly free society to exist.

I will be back later with a new post.

Guardian Guards Against Cock

And, now I read in The Guardian that The Daily Mail is proudly claiming Victory for forcing the change in Google policy - all in the interest of "protecting the children" of course. (Faithful Reader Jean has provided links in yesterday's comments) The religious ultra-conservatives have fully embraced the Taliban-like procedures of controlling what people see or read.

With the vast and fast migration to Tumblr, I wonder how long it will take the English-speaking Taliban to put enough pressure on Tumblr to follow the new Google policy. From the Comments YourFrenchPatrick has left on yesterday's post, it appears it is time to seriously look into migrating, so that I may continue writing about the physiology and psychology of the male package.

All in the interest of education...

Unrestricted Cock

There are conflicting theories on exactly how this new policy will work. Some believe that a monthly renewal will be required in order to access adult-content blogs. I think that once you've joined, you've joined and your access will be unrestricted. (Unrestricted cock - I like that thought.) I guess we'll find out when it happens.
I can't believe story this hasn't hit the national mainstream media yet. After all, restricting free access is a form of censorship (key word, free).
Some of my fellow Bloggers are opting to continue after the policy goes into effect. I think that's great - especially for those whose posts are strictly photos. But, for those of us who feel we offer some kind of educational service to the (adult) general public will be "screwggled" big time. Mainly because the casual (surfing) reader will not be able to see the information we post.
But, in the meantime, I'll be posting as usual and including all the graphic images of cock that Google deems offensive to the entire adult public. And, with that said...
