MATT: Before the Gutpunching...


As the title indicates, these drawings actually come before Matt's brutal gutpunching...think of this as a prequel...

MATT: The Gutpunching Continues!

Well, now that that little dustup that Google caused is over...let's get back to muscle boy Matt!

Fuck You Google, Part Deux

Well, it looks like Google has decided to back off their previous stance regarding adult-oriented/porn blogs:

"This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.

We’ve received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs, and about the negative impact this could have on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.

We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies.

What this means for blog owners

Commercial porn will continue to be prohibited.
If you have pornographic or sexually explicit content on your blog, you must turn on the adult content setting so a warning will show. If a blog with adult content is brought to Google’s attention and the content warning is not active, we will turn on the warning interstitial for you. If this happens repeatedly, the blog may be removed.
If you don't have sexually explicit content on your blog and you're following the rest of the Blogger Content Policy, you don't need to make any changes to your blog."

There was no reason to have tried this in the first place, but I'm glad they got enough heat to make them reconsider. That said, I'm still going to look into getting a website independent of Google. I have no confidence that they won't try this again at some point.

In the meantime, however, I'll get back to posting my artwork--I'm not finished with Anak, Matt, Omari, Karson, Jamal, and Tarzan yet!

Fuck You, Google

16 hours ago, I received this from Google:

"Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your content via Google Takeout (https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/blogger).

For more information, please read here (https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update).

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

FUCK YOU, GOOGLE. This is what happens when we're not looking--or looking closely. This is what happens when we think corporations like Google aren't evil. How are they going to decide the line between artistic representations of nudes and "graphic nude images"? Pornography is not illegal; this is just Google being the fucking kind of bullshit company they pretend NOT to be.

Well, now that Google has gone fucktarded, I'm going to have to find somewhere else to post my artwork. I've asked Telemachus if I can post my work there. Alternatively, I might just go ahead and start a website with a host that is porn-friendly.
FUCK YOU, GOOGLE.
