Ugh. Watch out if you are blogging dirty.

I just saw on The Scandy Factory that The Undead Film Critic's blog has been removed by Blogger. Go ahead, click here. I dare you. I double-dog dare you. Recently The Sexy Witch blog has had to put an adult content barrier on her (his?) blog after net citizens for decency started bawling to Google.

Yes, it is their site, their servers, and they can say what we can and cannot publish, but his site was remarkably tame compared to some things I have seen on Blogger (hell even on this blog). I thought the whole point of the adult barrier was to allow adult-themed material.

Today it's boobs, tomorrow it might be gore or lesbian nuns and Nazi movies. I am not sure there is a point or portal for bitching to Google, I am just saying, if your content is important to you, you might want to start running exports.

Yeah, this is pretty nerve-wracking. I've been backing up LTftTE regularly because... well... my stock in trade is "Objectionable Content." Then again, judging by what people have been looking for by the time they get to my website, those folks have got *no* reason to complain (except the guy who was looking for "head explodey movie Art Garfunkel"--not sure WHAT he was looking for).

That's really depressing.

I get the feeling the people flagging sites are not finding sites with objectional content, they are looking for them. I got hit up by some christian on Sublime Depravity. He said in his comment he was looking for such a site, presumably with the intent of converting the heathen.

I was sorry to hear this news. I really enjoyed the Undead Film Critic blog. What ticks me off is if people don't like that sort of thing and find it offensive then they shouldn't go to it. There are those that enjoy it. I thought at one time this was a free country, both there are plenty on the right and the left, that don't want you to see, hear, etc. whatever you want. It's not PC.

WHAAAAT!?!? Why!?
Damn you Google I just lost a bit of faith there. Shame on you! That was a great blog.

He must have struck a nerve with someone. Maybe Roberta Pedon kicked somebody's dog years ago?
