Dear Blogger User,According to Blogger's own forums on the matter, it became clear that things like the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel would even be disallowed on FB. Banning Michelangelo???
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/settin

In chatting with some FB friends, they were all appalled, and I got the idea of having one last HNT to offer a final FUCK YOU to Blogger/Google before they shut this site down on March 23rd. And everyone I let know about it embraced the idea as well!
Less than a week after their announcement, they reversed their obvious attempt on censorship. I suspect that between the outcry, and realizing that their users would drop Blogger like a hot potato, they had no choice just to keep the Blogger brand alive.
By this time, however, I had already received half a dozen submissions, and promises of many more. I decided to keep the HNT date, and make it a "We Beat Google!" HNT. Not that I really needed to make a title. It seems like many people were up for making a one-time comeback. Sort of like "A Very Brady Christmas" (and we know how many sequels there were for that show!).
So enjoy your friends here. Leave some comments. Be nice. And look for the next sequel!
