Do you mean that beautiful girls can't post on SSC?

I think some kind of donation system is good initiative, but it should not be with fixed amounts of money.

I think we're starting to miss out, though, on the most important point: while donations may sound interesting, we are responsible for the content we post and share with other members. We need to exercise caution when we post because you never know who might read them, and we need to make sure we post sensibly. That's what Jan wants from all of us.

There should definitely be an option to donate. I would gladly donate $100, this site has expanded my horizons for the better part of a decade.

It's pretty stupid that Google wouldn't allow ads on sites like SSC if it has "sensitive" content. Must be American mentality towards nudity and sex.

No luckily i meant that SSC is not supposed to be a site where you/someone else can post and/ look at pictures of beautiful women .

I know nobody is actually going to answer that but how much does it cost to run SSC and how much revenue does it get from AdSense?

Perhaps the owners can sell off their Veyrons and this would raise enough $$$ to run SSC for a long time?!

Is ANY human flesh considered 'porn' by google? I might be guilty of some images I've posted recently in the cats thread, although I don't see how they can be classified as "sexually gratifying" or "lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches". I removed some of them but please let me know if you find the rest objectionable.

It's more than complying, my friend. It's what's called responsible posting. Help find those troublesome threads and suspicious discussions by using the search tab on the top right of the forum so that the cleanup will be much faster, OK?

Salut,

tocmai am primit un avertisment ingrijorator cu privire la continuturi neadecvate, principala problema fiind imagini cu caracter pornografic si sexual.

Pentru a remedia situatia, rugam toti membrii SSC sa ajute activ la cautarea continuturilor nepotrivite. Deoarece suntem multilingvisti, ne-ar ajuta foarte mult daca ati face o cautare de imagini dupa cuvinte nepotrivite pe google in limba dumneavoastra. Verificati si pagina de imagini google.

Daca gasiti imagini nepotrivite pe situl nostru, va rugam sa raportati postarea respectiva (cu butonul cu semnul excalmarii in triunghi cu margine rosie), sau trimiteti un PM catre un moderator cu imaginea in cauza.

Va multumim!

Maybe. I'm here in the Bay Area, pretty close to the HQ of Google, so I will find a way to contact them in case. But, in any case, it's best to remove those suspicious threads and images. Let the admins contact Google directly and do another bot search to ensure that SSC is "all clear" again for AdSense to appear.

The procedure is that we fill out an appeal explaining what we have done and how to prevent it. It wasn't a final notice we were given, so if convincing enough, the can reinstate you. Members reporting posts is key in that strategy.

Easy way of solving this. Get rid of all skybars or have them in a £10 a year subscription section away from google adverts. Only way it will be solved but then again lots of other sites such as newspapers have adverts all over their sites with women with not alot on and nothing is said. Maybe it's time to have a meeting with google to agree terms rather than accepting all these threats. It's not the normal way of doing things and simply asking members will not solve a thing, the site is too big.
