    By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:

    the Content is not pornographic,

    I’d say your best option is to email support directly and get a definitive opinion from WordPress as the volunteers here in the forum won’t be able to give you a definitive answer, only their opinion:

    I have posted a link from their TOS, that’s not an opinion.

    The text above is copy/paste from their TOS

    I’m not sure how WordPress are viewing the difference between ‘pornography’ and ‘adult content’ (if they are) so as I say simply email them, tell them what you want to blog about and let WordPress decide.

    WP could possibly do with clarifying their TOS and support pages on that issue to make life easier.

    Pointing a member to the TOS is not the expression of an opinion. But I do agree that due diligence would be to approach Staff.

    P.S. I note the OP has a “make money” blog > imakemoney365.wordpress.com and the only Blogroll link is to an affiliate make money site.

    Oops, @arifsali – I hadn’t refreshed the screen.

    I wasn’t criticising what you said, just that WP seem to use ‘pornography’ and ‘adult’ as two different things – -and it isn’t clear to me at least how WP split them.

    The person above is asking for pornography in clear terms. I don’t see why this topic needs clarification.

    Blimey, I don’t want to get in to a philosophical debate over it. But many of the worlds legal systems have trouble defining exactly what is pornographic. And at risk of inflaming things your interpretation of WP’s TOS is actually an opinion.

    I say let WP make the decision (and clarify their TOS) and save us all some hassle.

    I didn’t mean to get into philosophical debate either so I simply posted the text off of TOS without adding anything on my own :)

    Any case, I believe WordPress is pretty lenient in terms of freedom of speech. However, based on this person’s already published content, we can pretty much deduce what he may mean by pornography.

    There is also a difference between a blog about porn and a blog of porn.
