Google Policy Reversal

Thanks JC for informing me about this policy reversal.  I have not opened my email for the past days.  So this is the email I got from Google;

Dear Blogger User,

This week, you received an email telling you about some changes we were making to the Blogger Content Policy. In that email, we announced a change to Blogger's porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.

We've received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs and the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.

We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies (

What this means for your blog:
Commercial porn will continue to be prohibited.
If you have pornographic or sexually explicit content on your blog, you must turn on the adult content setting ( so a warning will show.

If you don't have sexually explicit content on your blog and you're following the rest of the Blogger Content Policy (, you don't need to make any changes to your blog.

Thank you for your continued feedback,

The Blogger Team

Thankfully I have not yet started deleting the videos.  So everything is still intact.  Once I delete these videos, I have no way of reposting them again.  

As I have explain years ago my original plan was to clean my hard drive of porn videos but I decided before I delete the video I instead upload it here in the blog.

With this incident I do not trust Google to keep its adult content policy.  They might keep this policy for now but for how long?  I have decided to develop further the DiscreetBai Tumblr account as a contingency measure.  Once I feel comfortable using Tumblr I might link the two site together.

Again to everyone, thanks for supporting
