It Is Never Easy...

I am grateful to Blogger to have supported this adult oriented posts for more than two years. That means thanks also to Google, Blogger's owner.

However, other Google enterprise, Picasa Web Albuns, does not abide by the same mindset as to nudity and has just cancelled my subscription to its service. They have said that somebody has complained about the nature of my images. As a consequence, all slide shows in this Female Fight Theater have stopped working. That includes the small and permanent slide section in the page top right.

It is weird that the same organization that allows adult oriented posting in the blogs, does not allow the same category of images on its photos sharing service. All my albuns were not public just to avoid any complaints. Anyway, let us move forward...

I will have to look for other image host service that accepts the kind of imagery used in this blog. In the meantime, new slide shows will have to be uploaded as movie clips.


  1. Instead of throwing your hands up in the air and giving in to these shit-for-brains, ass-backwards morons who complain, why don't you just ask Google to set you up with an adult content filter option or some other adult screening option which apparently Picasa (as its photo-sharing service) is willing to do ?

    Although Google has the right to 404 what they don't want, they also have options to allow content users to implement to satisfy the concerns of those who are eternally butt-brained.

    The following is from Google's (inclusive of Picasa) TOS, paragraph 8.3:

    " 8.3 Google reserves the right (but shall have no obligation) to pre-screen, review, flag, filter, modify, refuse or remove any or all Content from any Service. For some of the Services, Google may provide tools to filter out explicit sexual content. These tools include the SafeSearch preference settings (see In addition, there are commercially available services and software to limit access to material that you may find objectionable. "

    (Google's full TOS is here:

  2. Hi, my friend Panther100, always wanting to help and giving straightforward advice. Firstly, I sincerely appreciate your participation in this Blog.

    In this case, my understanding is that you are mentioning tools to protect Google tools reader users from undesirable content. However, in my case, Google Picasa is filtering and denying a content provider to store certain images.
    I do not disagree with that: it is their right to do so.
    What I do not understand is why Google Blogger allows adult material but Google Picasa does not allow it .

    Anyway, as I said, let's move on.

    Best Regards

  3. " What I do not understand is why Google Blogger allows adult material but Google Picasa does not allow it. "

    Excellent " question. "

    The only obvious reason I can think of is it's just Google's own subjectivity in what it thinks one set of standards should be for how Blogger should function and another for how Picasa should function (or else the only other logical alternative would be to merge 'em).

    In the big picture I totally agree; whether a Web-services company is a blog publication service provider for individually-owned blogs or a photo collection display provider for individually- owned (or posted) photos, it doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to make the rules different, esp. if you agree to allow an adult content warning as enough of a safeguard - which Blogger does - for one and not the other.

    Those idiots who aren't satisfied enough with a warning and nonetheless take offense and can't mind their own damn business ought to be given their own warning:

    Get your damn ass lost big-time.

    Just my views ...

  4. [BTW, oh yeah, I knew what I said about content filtering options applied to reader users but my thought was for you as a content provider to still possibly try and set something up that would satisfy Picasa and provide a warning to those jackasses who might take offense (in other words, just do privately with your Picasa albums what Blogger does as standard practice for all of its blogs that it hosts.)]

    ... but alas !, I've since read all of Picasa's Program Policies and apparently nothing will persuade them otherwise.)

    Separately, I'd be more than happy to blog the shit out of the asinine doofus who did this to you ...

    ... if you find out who, feel free to let me know.)
