well I posted this on another blog Was I mad last night when I read the "news" not at all. I was really Kinda happy. Weblo is stepping in. That is all I wanted..A fair playing field. They gave us a set of rules and to be honest They are good rules..we all know it. Still like most good rules they left the door open for interpretation. My interpretation maybe because of my past is strict. Nothing revealing. Arrffdude is now on a family beach not in just the gallery side but the main site also. Well on the main site a thong may stroll by from time to time . Hey it happens in real life to trust me I have been slapped on family beaches. Is this a victory for the people who feel all woman should be covered head to toe. No way and they will still complain ( I get joy out of that). We still have our freedom, we just have to realize that with freedom comes responsibility. Our responsibility is to develop a website that will please the masses .What plays in New york doesn't play in Peoria. If we want weblo to grow we want to play in Peoria and Iran ( yes that's a shot) Folks weblo made a decision and I feel they will stick to their guns. I stayed up with my rabbi till the wee hours deleting 90 percent of my pictures and getting drunk, NONE containing sex or nudity. To those that think this will bring in the big companies take of the rose covered glasses . I was on Lord Tintagel site last night ( who I have the utmost respect for) He has an add with a female in a bikini for one of his advertisers. Why sex sells. The people that advertise on the Internet know it. Bottom line Am I making Money HELL yeah and I am not about to mess it up for some 17 year old kid cruising the web. Long story short suck it up-clean it up and move forward. WEBLO after a year has stepped up to the plate now they have to be the enforcer. Hopefully they will also clean up Duplicate sites , Misplaced assets and Domain names that are not printable on a bathroom wall in NYC That's my speech and I am sticking with it. Look for my next site FATMenINTHONGs.Comm :)

i guess we will see how it all plays out,,i dont think my sites are that bad,,but who knows,,some may be offended,that being said,i am not deleting jack nothing,,i spent way too much time building it and if they don't pass then let them delete it...in one year ive made close to $200,,divided by time spent it seems the structure here isn't quite right,someone is getting rich and it isn't me or anyone else...that build pages...

Well said Arrffdude! Censorship, in whatever form, is designed to tidy up the relative question which is relative to the community concerned. Hilary Clinton does not stand naked on stage promoting her candidacy, nor does she wear her campaign outfit in the bath - it's all relative! Weblo is the same - there has to be standards which are relative to the global audience we are trying to attract. I currently have two ads running for dietary products, both include ladies in swimwear - but not in exotic poses. Neither ad features as my lead picture, one has to visit an asset to see the picture, and then one usually has to scroll down to find them. One of the main issues for me has been the plethora of sites appearing in the featured section along the bottom of everyone's pages, which have turned the feature into a collection of unsuitable photos. This then looks like we are all consenting to promote this factor by allowing/placing these pictures on our pages, when in fact nobody can control what appears. On the other hand, the present random programming means that everyone has equal opportunity for their assets to be featured (best option), which encourages everyone to work hard to build and promote their portfolio. For my 21st birthday, the British government introduced compulsory seatbelts, but I didn't buy a white tee-shirt with the black stripe!

from weblos terms of service "Eligibility. You must be 18 years of age or over, or the legal age required to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction if that age is greater than 18, to register with and use the Site. By using the Site, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and have the right, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement. transmit or make available any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful, or racially or ethnically or otherwise objectionable;" so you must be 18 and over to be here in the first place..now the only question is the word obscene..what is actually obscene definition...
