I’ve just received mail from Google informing me that they will suspend advertising to my ’50s blog if I don’t remove THIS PROVOCATIVE PHOTO and all like it. Immediately.
It’s Cyd Charisse. FFS.
No “provocative poses” or “strategically covered nudity” or god knows what else is allowed… I mean, if a film still like this can be considered offensive mature content, I am at a loss to know what IS acceptable.
As ad revenue from blogs is my only income, I will now spend the next 3 working days (that’s how long they’ve given me) deleting at least a quarter of my blog…. JUST IN CASE.
Fucking puritans. Madness.
(I will give them kudos for at least giving me warning this time. Last June they shut down Adsense to my ’60s blog with no warning for an iconic topless photo of Janis Joplin that I had posted in 2009. I was forced to change URLs. So THANKS FOR WARNING ME THIS TIME GOOGLE. Srsly.)
