On the Move.
So, I got this bullshit in my inbox:
“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
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/settin

If you still have the old “…/blogspot.com” address bookmarked, you simply need to use transversealchemy.com instead.
The blog will carry on as usual, but this will be the end of our transmission from the Google platform.
This is such hateful draconian bullshit! I don’t get how it’s not literally illegal too, as this rule breaks free speech!
Do you know how to contact Blogger to send complaints/ask questions? I tried for like twenty minutes to find any email address, and found nothing. It seems to me like they WANT everyone to be unable to complain about this new rule! Hopefully a petition or something will start and destroy this new rule, because otherwise it’s going to screw over thousands, both of us included!
They’ve gone back on the decision. For now.
My sentiments have not been reversed.
