personally, when I view naked pictures on reddit (never used Blogger for that) the content that I view is of people who post of themselves.

the attraction for me is they want to be seen. the only reason I downloaded the Celebrity nudes after the leak was because the lawyers claimed to want to sue everyone who downloaded the images. it was an act of rebellion from my side, if that makes any sense

Misleading article title is misleading. Google is only banning the images from the Blogger service.

If Google actually banned nude images - LOL. Their advertising revenue would drop 90% and Bing would become the new most popular search engine overnight.

Social-networking and news site Reddit says it will remove photos, videos and links with explicit content if the person in the image hasn’t given permission for it to be posted.
Reddit gonewild ftw!!!!
I've actually heard about this - seems there was a subreddit called knuckledeepinpublic (No further description required - just look thoughtful for a moment). The sub was banned after a 17 year old girl sued the site - someone had posted photos of her at a music festival, performing a sex act on one gent, while another was trying to find his car keys. :wtf: (Yep. Stay classy, murica. Stay classy.)

Ethical perving. Believe it or not - there is a entire industry around that - its called selfsploitation - started by a site called Ishotmyself.

Actually, it is OK to post nudes on Google's Blogger service.

Google is backing off a Tuesday announcement to ban sexually explicit material on public Blogger sites. The company said Friday that there was an outcry from people incensed about the censorship of their nude photos.

Mountain View, California-based Google had warned that Blogger users had until March 23 to remove most nude pictures or their site would be switched to private mode — only available to the authors and invited viewers.

Google's initial ban was made on the same day that Reddit, a social forum and news site, had said it would remove photos, videos and links with explicit content if the person pictured hadn't given permission for the post.

In a post Friday, Blogger said it changed its mind after getting a "ton of feedback" from longtime users who thought it was unfair to suddenly change the policy. The company was also swayed by users who considered the sexually explicit content to be part of their identities.

Blogger will instead "step up enforcement" of its existing policy against commercial porn.

Sexually explicit content on Blogger will still be marked by an "adult content" warning.
