The End of Wonderland?


Got this email today: What are the rest of you going to do?

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

I'm going to back up my blog, and see what happens. Perhaps this will be the end, or perhaps this is just a threat that will not come to fruit. Time will tell.

In any event, we need a way to stay in touch with each other in case something happens. Maybe sharing our email address so we can be made aware of any changes? What do you guys think of that?
