Welcome to the “I almost care” category, which my second category in as many weeks. The other new category being “Libertarianism”. Now, on to something I almost care about.
BoingBoing.net was blacklisted by some “censorware” site. Sites get blacklisted by being offensive, of an adult nature or “inappropriate” for some reason or another.
I’m not shocked that BoingBoing was blacklisted. They have, after all, ran advertising prominently on their site for Suicide Girls, which is an adult website features naked women. Not to mention the plethora of other links and articles they post that, in some way or another, feature the naked human form, drug paraphernalia, etc. What shocks me is that BoingBoing was surprised they were blacklisted.
Could they be more holy? If you want to be taken seriously as a “journalist” or whatever the hell bloggers want to be called these days, then quit posting pictures of pierced and tattooed naked women on your site. And, for the love of God, please don’t act surprised when you find out someone doesn’t want their kid browsing said site.
