Before You Guys Start Bitching That I've Sold Out (Which We All Know You Will)- The Removal Of Porn From The Blog IS NOT MY FAULT

Here is the email I just received from Blogger:

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

SO KEEP YOUR BITCHING TO YOURSELVES.  IT'S GOING TO BE A HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS TO EDIT EVERYTHING I'VE DONE FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND I DON'T WANT TO FUCKING HEAR IT.

  1. Then it's time to move on to the next level: WordPress hosted on your own domain at a hosting company. Screw the nanny state prudes at Google.

  2. Damn, that's cold. I liked the porn -it made for a really interesting counterbalance to the content. Also, it was porn.

    Second the vote for wordpress and a domain. It will cost you about $30 a year and save you all sorts of headaches...

    1. That's a lot of effort and some cost for no reason and no profit whatsoever. I'm just going to omit the porn.

  3. Seems like a no-brainer... go indy and host it yourself.

    1. I already provide free content- I'm not going to pay to provide free content. That makes no sense. I make $0 off this blog.

    2. Isn't this blog a huge gateway to the supplements that you sell. I just wouldn't have thought that you would be one to stifle your creativity based on google's new terms of service. Another option, which I would think plenty of readers would support, is something like patreon.com.

      Delete
    3. I wouldn't charge people to read it either. Not putting porn in the blog is hardly someting that stifles my creativity- it just limits my ability to troll my readers, and limits the retarded demands for porn I invariably get when I don't randomly jam it into a post. In other words, it's less of a headache without the porn.

  4. Weird that I expected the response of "Huh, that sucks" and instead got "you should pay us to read your shit."

    1. That's a welcome change in response. Thanks guys.

    2. I agree, I'll keep reading with no porn. It sucks, fuck google, but there's no good reason you should pay just so I can accidentally see anorexic porn (still haunts me) and shemales (you get me everytime)

  6. Have you already forgotten people e-mailing just to demand that you use better recording software for the podcasts?

    The removal of porn sucks, certainly takes away a bit from your online persona. Are you forced to take down all naked chicks or can you keep some of the 'artistic' tits?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh, no, I haven't forgotten about that. I'll buy all of this shit to provide free content just as soon as I'm not so poor that I have more furniture than a futon and a desk and a leaky air mattress. Maybe I'll buy my fans more free shit before I splurge and buy some plastic shelving so I can take my clothes out of duffel bags and actually stack them on something.

    1. Actually, no I won't- I'll maybe buy a floor lamp with the $30 I could spend to waste 400 hours porting my blog to a new domain and reformatting everything just so lazy people don't have to search their own porn.

      Delete
    2. Yes! That just made my evening. The lack of porn is a downer, but hey, your content still kick s a very high volume of ass. I kinda liked the occasional tranny sprinkled here and there :(

      Delete
    3. Are you going the April Mathis route of lifting, with living in a shed and looking like a hobo or does your food and endocrine enhancers take up that much of your budget?

      What do you weigh these days anyway? I remember you and Paul joking about you at 220 being a bloated carcass, but aren't you heavier now?

      Delete
    4. No, I just see no point in essentially paying you people to read this shit.

      I lost a bunch of weight due to illness and injury. I was 220 and am about 205 now, lean as shit.

      Delete
  8. I don't really consider the pictures as porn, I think they play an educational role since you can compare them to the text and the other pictures in your blog. Write a letter to Google and explain that they are only for educational purpose!

    ReplyDelete
  9. If people want porn they can just fucking google it. Is it seriously that hard?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Can't say that I'll miss the the chicks with dicks pics. See, there's always a silver lining!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, that's gay. Too bad. I come here for the sick writing though, as I'm sure everyone else does too.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Can't believe you sold out. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  13. First the leg extensions, now this?

    I don't know what to think anymore.

    All jokes aside, won't miss seeing that bitch throwing up on a dick everytime I read 'Stemming the tide of de-evolution part 2'.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You've got shit taste in women anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hold up. It clearly states: "We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts". That statement describes every picture you've posted, so you're good to go.

    No worries though. I enjoy your writing so I don't care about losing the pictures. Truth be told I enjoyed your captions of the pictures more than the pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sorry to hear, having to edit that much content's an annoying time sink. Here for the writing though, which is great as always.

    1. Frankly, searching for porn is an equally annoying time sink, haha.

  17. I'm assuming you know that this is no longer the case.

    How far back did you go editing?

  18. Sorry to hear, the cleanse pics always seemed to do just that.

    Your writing and insight is why I always come back.
    In the words of the immortal Ted Knight...top notch...TOP NOTCH!

  19. Well, I assumed, from the photo at the top of the page, that you were selling supplements. If that business makes any money at all, then it is time to move on from Blogger - regardless of what changes they may have made to their policies today, that they may change again tomorrow.

    If there is ANY money to be made in supplement sales (I don't know, not in that type of business) then you should have an online store site, under the domain name of the company. Being on Blogger should be a temporary measure for the initial startup, not a long term business plan . Use it as a publicity page that directs readers to the online store to buy.

    All that being said, I occasionally read what you write. Not being a serious weight lifter, I don't visit often. BUt you do have a unique style, that's for sure.

    But even if they have reversed this policy, visitors here still have to click on the "content warning" at Blogger, which I personally have rarely ever seen. I guess I don't visit the 'wrong' sort of Blogs often. But if I was someone who wanted to buy supplements, I might be put off by that warning. So there is a clear business case to getting off of Blogger to your own domain. This Blog has been around for a while, the name is out there, so to keep that goodwill/name recognition, your own domain is the way to go. Start with new posts there, then if you have time later, move some of your best posts from here over. Put lots of links here, keep this page up, while focusing on the new domain. This is all basic stuff for e-business, no matter what the market or industry.

    Just my opinion. Good luck.

    1. We have a corporate site, and I have a SFW blog on taht site. If you click the banner at the top of the page, it directs you there. I maintain the blog on blogger because it's got insane google metrics- moving it would destroy them.

  20. If it's that big deal to some of you why don't you send Jamie some money to buy a domain.

    1. Lol. You're the only person who suggested that, which amuses me.

    2. chaosandpain.com is already taken by some bro-tastic goths?

    3. I own that domain- it's my corporate site.

  21. I heard you can see porn (even shemale porn) on the internet! I'm not sure it's really true though. This guy provides the best training information on the 'net and he can still use adult language I hope!

  22. Man, that sucks. I once had to go through about 400 or so posts and just add a single tag to them, and it took a hell of a long time. I don't envy you having to go back and remove all those images.

    We all appreciate you taking the time to do it. Anyone who comes here for the porn and not the info is wasting their time anyway. Its clear you put a lot of time and effort into your posts.

  23. What - what the fuck - what a pointless change by Blogger. Wankers

  24. Why doesn't blogger just ban any content that is enjoyable? Go on, might as well ban writing while they're at it.

  26. They've updated the policy again I believe. Porn is going to continue to be allowed: https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update

  27. Yep, Google backed down.
