Please Delete all the sex blog

  1. After 1 month, I've seen many sex blog, it makes WordPress dirty.
    DELETE, REMOVE all of them:

    [urls removed - Mark]

    There're many black blog, I will post more if I see

  2. Do NOT post them.

    Report them as Mature.

    When you are signed in your blue Admin bar allows you to set things as MATure

  3. Oddly enough some people quite like sex. :)

  4. As raincoaster says, report them - posting the urls here has 2 effects:

    1. It sends them traffic.
    2. People see it's a link to a blog that will offend them, they click the link to see the blog which will offend them, then they complain about having to have seen a blog which offends them. People are like that.

    One has been suspended, the other has not because it does not break the ToS.

    As atthe404 points out, these things are quite individual.

    What you're suggesting might make sense to you, but where does it end?
    Someone who doesn't like right-wing politics will say: delete right-wing blogs.
    Someone who doesn't like Muslims will say: delete Muslim blogs.
    Someone who doesn't like Cheezburgers will say: delete cat pic blogs.

    Someone who doesn't like your blog will say: delete your blog.

    You get to choose what you see and what you don't.

    Agree!

  7. imo censorship of that sort would make wordpress dirty

  8. what the hell man??

  9. Thanks, LettersHome to You and Cronies. If anyone dislikes an author’s blog content, they have the right not to view or read it by leaving the blog. Censorship? No!

  10. The bottom line here is that posting to the forum as Mark observed is likely to have an opposite effect to what the posting party intends. The responsibility for having your blog labeled as "mature" and "not safe for work" lies with the owner of the blog in question. However, many do not live up to it so if you find a blog with what you consider to be containing unsuitable content then follow the directions given in the FAQs and report it rather than posting here. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/ive-seen-a-blog-with-unsuitable-content-how-do-i-tell-you/

  11. Um, so how do you FIND the sex blogs? ;-/

  12. The net is full of porn, most of it is of the quality of sleazy cheescake and beefcake as opposed to erotic art. Use your imagination and determine the key words for a wordpress tag page search or for google searches that anyone looking for a cheap thrill ie. a substitute for the real thing would use.

  13. Heh, j/k.

  14. Use your imagination and determine the key words for a wordpress tag page search

    Except, of course, blogs flagged as 'mature' are excluded from the tags pages, from the recently updated list, from the front page and probably from Google searches as well.

    Compared to most other blog hosts, WordPress content is fairly heavily censored already. You'd have to be pretty stupid to post your porn here if you wanted people to actually see it.

  15. Yeah. This is strictly kids and Christians.

    So someone couldn't post actual porn or porn videos, legal of course, on WordPress.com even if it was labeled as mature? I think Blogger can't if it's a commercial blog too.

  17. And OT it is funny how this kid keeps *stumbling* on the porn. I have never seen it.

  18. yeah I had to laugh at that too. it's not often that I randomly find a wordpress sex blog

  19. Yes, you can post legal porn on a Mature blog.

    Go LADYRM2!

    Agree!

  22. So someone couldn't post actual porn or porn videos, legal of course, on WordPress.com even if it was labeled as mature?

    If it's legal in the US you can post it. Just don't expect anyone to be able to find it.

  23. Except, of course, blogs flagged as 'mature' are excluded from the tags pages, from the recently updated list, from the front page and probably from Google searches as well.

    Is the mature flag optional or up to the blogger? Case in point--something in the Fastest Growing Blog section: http://lielani.wordpress.com/

    It's up to the blogger in question to notify staff that their blog has "mature" contents that are "not safe for work". If they don't then any other blogger can report the site and the staff will make the call http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/ive-seen-a-blog-with-unsuitable-content-how-do-i-tell-you/
    You see if these blogs are not so labeled and bloggers volunteering to answer questions on the forum click on the blog when trying to help they can get into big trouble with their bosses (or even their spouses) who may misinterpret the situation and think the volunteers are into watching porno at work.

  25. you cant delete them. If you have read the FAQ, you will know that wordpress only deletes blogs with illegal content (selling drugs, etc.), not just blogs with content people are offended by. The best thing to do is to never post links to those sites, and to flag them as mature. that way they don't appear in listings around wordpress.com

  26. also, lettershometoyou is right

    "What you're suggesting might make sense to you, but where does it end?

    You get to choose what you see and what you don't. "

    different people are offended by different things.

  27. I wish someone would close this thread and get the thing off the front page. Where do these people think we are Turkey? Its just moralistic puritanical crap.

  28. It's also getting repetitive.

  29. Closed :)
