We are Too Adult for Google Ads

After 4 years of having Google Ad Sense on the site (which you would only see if you were not signed in), Google has determined the content here is not family friendly enough for their ads and has deemed this an adult site. While it will not have any direct impact on SLU, it is a big loss revenue wise that did help to support the site. I haven't decided what I will do yet to replace it, but there it is.

One thing I'd like to say is thanks Cris, for letting us speak our minds, for the most part uncensored, obviously even though it will have an impact on you. So many places in this world try to slap a muzzle on freedom of expression and you've not done that.

I'm very sorry to hear this, Cris. First I hear that Google has mugged PayPal, and now this. Hope karma bites them right in the ass.

ETA: BTW, you run the best forum site I've ever seen. Thank you very much.

That whole Paypal/Google thing is pretty shocking, that is really blatant.

Well, this may not be a very popular observation (not suggestion), but it would cost us nothing to tone language down, and it costs Cris something if we don't. I don't see why he should bear the entire burden alone.

I mean, I assume most of us know how to communicate effectively in the workplace even though we are conscious of some constraints on our language and topics. Most of us don't feel deprived if we can't go around the work place telling ppl to go f*** themselves.

Cris is understandably loathe to make such a request, but we could still volunteer.

Alternatively, maybe take out an ad or just directly donate to make up the difference.

ETA: Please notice I have not expressed any opinion above about which I personally think is the better alternative.

Start a swear jar. 5L a word.

Here, I'll start folks off.

*singing*

Ooooooooooooh
shit bugger bum fuck cock piss fart
Somebody stole my horse and cart
but I couldn't give a bugger no I couldn't give a fuck
No!
Shit bugger bum cock fuck piss fart....

Ohhhhhhhhh
Shit bugger balls cunt pubic hair......
Somebody stole my maiden fair
But I couldn't give a bugger - cause tonight I'll fuck another
Oh shit bugger balls cunt pubic hair.


On the other hand, this is a forum to discuss SL. A magical virtual land that's become devoted to every sexual kink under the sun.

How about we don't discuss it anymore.. *shrug*

No. I don't know where you or anyone else lives regardless of how many ip addresses my website may have logged. I don't care.

Unless you are from Tennessee and openly declare it in which case I will support boycotting you as anti gay because you support Tennessee by not opposing the retarded inbred idiots that actually think there is an invisible man deciding everything for them.

You should have informed them that "dog fucker" is a medical terminology... so slu is really a PSA.

I don't think a volunteer effort would work. The SLU crowd is way too big and not everyone would get the word, nor would everyone be able to control their language.

If Cris wants Google back badly enough, there are language filters available that will auto-censor posts. I hate those things with a passion myself, but it's his decision.

I made a New Year's resolution to try to be nicer and cuss less, but I'm afraid I've broken it so often I'm hopeless.

I'm also not sure it's the language here that's the problem. Some of the ads are on the shady side of Victoria's secret, and even though they're just avatars usually I could see some prudish Google auditor pointing to them just before he runs off to his Tea Party/Church convention.

Seriously, it doesn't take much anymore to be considered "not family friendly". I'm not sure what family they're talking about, because mine cusses like sailors.
