Porn Bloggers?

The adult channel is in 49Media because those blogs exist. 49Media started out with 4 very respectable blogs and just kept going from link to link and at some point just started finding them - so somehow they're all interconnected. So, we could either delete them all as they come in or put them in an adult channel that requires an extra step to get into - and is also the last channel.

My view is that there are all kinds of blogs out there - deleting the ones I or whoever else doesn't like out of 49Media won't make them go away - and I don't think that would be the right thing to do. Now of course, if I find anything that's against the law I'll notify authorities and delete it right away... but it seems that what it has been finding to date is ok, at least with the law, as far as I know. I do know, for example, that you can find that kind of stuff in Yahoo as well, they even have an advanced search option to specifically allow adult content...

I think my views are the way they are because I spent such a long time in Europe (almost 25 years) - people there just aren't as uptight about this as they are here. I know that a lot of Europeans I've talked to just don't understand America because of this - land of the free and all that but not so free in some ways. I try to tell them about history and all of that - but they still wonder.

    ...And by against the law, are you only referring to adult content? I think some of my videos could possibly deemed illegal under some interpretations of the PATRIOT ACT or other such legal attempts to suppress anti-authoritatian political views from being heard.

    Sure, tough subject. I guess everybody has their own view on what is against the law... but I guess the laws they apply in courts are the ones that count and that put people in jail - so it makes sense to follow them. Now in my view, legal attempts to suppress anti-authoritarian political views from being heard go against the core values of this country - and that is really scary.
