Google Clampdown On Nude, Sexually Explicit Blogger Content

UPDATE Friday, Feb. 27 ::: Google reverses ban on explicit Blogger content - Bloggers' backlash was a ROAR. And Google knew if it unleashed a torrent of bots, thousands of non-porn blogs would be nuked. Nothing good would come of it. Google would have been dragged thru the mud on twitter and facebook, and that was exactly what Apple was waiting for. A mole at Apple leaked word back to master control. Google still requires blog*spot bloggers mark any explicit contentl as “adult” so that people who don’t want to see such material can avoid it. (I would still recommend routinely saving your template and content files onto your computer or thumb drive. Make it a habit!)

All seems to be well. For now. Until the next 'crisis.' Here's the original post:

Perhaps you received an email from Google regarding your blog, and you're wondering, "Why did I get this?"

What if my blog is "innocent" of all charges?


Blogger is following the example of Twitter-owned social network Vine, which has prohibited the sharing of pornographic clips.  Check your blog and mark your calendar: as of March 23, 2015, you won't be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity on Blogger. People have told me my homemade spaghetti and meatballs is a "sinful dish," so I'm hoping I'll be in the clear.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
