Hmmm ... so do I have to delete the few posts I have with rear nudity?

Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your content via Google Takeout (https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/blogger).

For more information, please read here (https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update).

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

  3. I fail to see what they hope to achieve with this, it's not like there aren't 1,000 different places to post pictures, you could get a tumblr and post to your heart's content. Reminds me of the battle against piracy, "Whew we spent more than 10 years and countless amounts of money to bring down one site! Nevermind about the 25 others that have been there for years, and the 20 others that rose to take its place overnight" Christ forbid we Americans see a butt, oh lord all of civilization might collapse in on itself.

  5. christ that's wack. I'm not so salty about losing butt pic themselves... it's gonna be really sucky though if you can't post certain pics because the underwear is partially pulled down. That could affect a lot of grey area, depending.

  6. Looks like Google finally came to their senses and will not be pursuing this ridiculous agenda.
