So... yeah....



Welp it seems like blogger has decided to ban all porn. Which isn't really a huge surprise. I think we all kinda figured it would happen at some point. And that point is on March 23rd. Read below...
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

Needless to say... fuck Google. Obviously they don't quite believe in as "free" an internet as they say. Which I'm sure is a huge surprise /sarcasm. But it's what happens when you place power over yourself into the hands of another. It will just about always come back to fuck you. Like with third-party card processors. Sigh.

Frankly, think there is gonna be a lot more of this in the future. Crackdowns on porn and the like. We'll have a new regime in power in the next few years, the moral guardians will be empowered, and there will be a lovely crusade of righteousness. Joy. And we'll have a new band of jackasses trying to enforce their cultural values as law, to replace our current group of jackasses. Yay. Can't wait. /more sarcasm

So what to do in the meantime? Reckon I'll copy the blog over to some other platform and host it off my site I guess. Sucks, but it is what it is. In the meantime, here's a pic to tide you over. Which may or may not be acceptable under the new terms. Who fucking knows these days.

You can pass this around to all the 3D erotic artists you know. I had a feeling this was coming, as there was talk of it a couple years back. This was partially why I created Ambient Dimension, to allow erotic or downright pornographic 3D art. And you are ALWAYS welcome there! Tell me what you folks would like to see to make things more to your liking to post your 3D erotic art, and I will do my best to add it in! To be honest, I was hoping to have one unifying place where all 3D art, erotic and non erotic, can post stuff, but mostly, I wanted to see the erotic stuff not all spread over the internet in different corners. A place where it can be all gathered together. Let me know, anything I can do to help you folks move over, I will try and do. Heck, the website is free, so its already got no barriers to entry!

Fucking assholes, WTF really. I think the internet will ban pron soon enough. Libra Dbags, no one forces anyone to look or watch it but its one of the biggest industries and i bet 90% of the population view it or have or will... ridiculous.

Yes that is really so sorry, I cannot believe it, that we all 3D artitists have no place to share our artwork sets . Thumblr is not good. I don't know where to share my artworks now...

I have my own erotic 3D site using Blogspot. I haven't received this email regarding the content that I post. If that's the case I may need to go ahead and start closing it down. What would be a good alternative for my naughty pics to find a home?

@Redrobot - Since you have your own site, you might want to look into installing Wordpress and just using that. Will probably be what I end up doing.
