This Just In:

Hermione just posted a link to an announcement from the Google blogger team.  The announcement reads as follows:

Hello everyone,

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.  

Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

Thank you for your continued feedback.  

The Blogger Team

Here is the link to the announcement:

Thanks to Hermione for posting this information and thanks to anyone who took the time to post on the blogger forum.  The influx of forum posts apparently resulted in changing their mind.

Hurray for us.

This Blog will now return to its regularly scheduled programming.   Really!!!

Whew! What a week! I'm so glad this is over, and that Google didn't make us stew about it all weekend.
