What is considered Mature content?

  1. What is considered mature? I am not talking about nude pictures or sex descriptions. If some of my rants get explicit in a litterature context, violent in a moral sense or excessively dark, strange,
    depressive or sarcastic, etc, what do I do? When should I create a separate blog with full warning on the front page? Or is the freedom of expression illimited?

    as a hug

    I have been here for only 18 days and only 11 posts but it feels just fine and all is peachy.
    Just fine is quite rare in itself but seriously, FOR FREE? This blogger stays right here : )

  2. hello there,

    "Adult" or mature content blogs are allowed but pornography is not allowed.
    From the TOS http://en.wordpress.com/tos/
    Please don’t:
    •Post explicit sexual materials that can be considered pornographic, such as explicit images or video of sexual acts or close-up images of genitalia;
    •Post links or banner ads to adult-oriented affiliate networks, such as pornography site signups;
    •Post links, text, or images promoting or advertising escort services;
    •Post images of extreme violence or gore without associated context or commentary;
    •Post images of child pornography;
    •Post content that promotes pedophilia, such as blogs with galleries of images of children where the images, content surrounding the images, or the intent of the blog is sexually suggestive.

  3. TYVM Markel, If it is all you refer me to, all I need is a Category name and a proper warning about the subject :)

    After writing the above question, I thought of citing American Psycho as an extreme of sorts. But I'll likely be less graphic if more angry anyway.

    Thnx again, Tay.

  4. Regarding American Psycho, your account will be suspended if your blog contains threats or incitements of violence towards individuals or entities.

  5. Ah, New infos, thank you then macmanx.
    Now that we are on the right track is there
    a document stating that part of the editorial
    rules, Pliz?

    I really want to know before even trying to produce in such fashion :)
    So for instance when is it suspension other than your guideline above
    and when is mature or not?

    Thnx for your time, Tay

  6. It's covered in our terms of service: http://en.wordpress.com/tos/

  7. Et voilà, Thank you! I'll be headin' there just now.

    Good evening all, Tay. :D

  8. You're welcome!
