The Terms of Service have been updated raddle.me

Submitted by ziq admin in meta (edited )

A no-pornographic images/videos rule was added to the Content Policy section after popular demand.

Non-pornographic nudity is still permitted e.g. Femen protests, topfree equality, etc.

Sounds fine. We still need to be able to talk about porn re sex work and sexual liberation though, which may occasionally blur borders.

It would be on the distinction between engaging porn from a radical perspective and engaging it merely to get off.

Or no?

It's not an easy thing to decide, I think. I'm not sure how sex workers would feel about it! Maybe when some come along we could discuss it again?

Talking about sex is still fine. I'll clarify the rule to specify 'Is a pornographic image or video'.

We will delete the entire site and its content before allowing your data to fall into the hands of any third party.

The administrators of this site will delete your account and all your data if you request it. Such requests can be made in the f/meta subforum or by contacting one of us directly.

Good to know. Many other sites have complicated steps to delete your account, and they probably keep the data for a few more months. Facebook seems to remember for a lot longer. If you create an account there after some years, use a photo of you and add some of your old friends, it will start filling the gaps by suggesting other people you talked to, suggesting your city, your birthplace, etc...

That's being worked on, as well as anonymous posting.

Why the age restrictions? Aren't they a bit high? I personally joined Reddit around the age of 14, so it would make sense that some Raddle users may want to join around a similer age. Also:

Mature content must be clearly marked by the submitter using the [NSFW] tag in the title of the submission. Persons under 18 years of age are not permitted to view this content. Mature content includes anything of a graphically violent or sexual nature.

Isn't including content of sexual nature in here now redundent, since it is now banned? Also, on a side note, what is wrong with those under 18 viewing things of sexual nature anyway?? I never understood…

'Sexual nature' isn't the same as 'pornographic'.

The age restriction was decided by the community when we put the ToS together. It protects us from possible accusations that we're 'radicalizing' minors or encouraging them to be violent. We don't need that.

Why the age restrictions?

Probably because people here promote the violent dismantling of the state?

How are we defining 'pornography'? What about art photography? Naturism?

See the original conversation for clarification:

https://raddle.me/f/meta/374/comment/329

There was also a brief conversation in the main matrix room a few hours ago where I was asked to implement the rule into the ToS because someone had made a furry porn forum here.

EDIT: Actually, the convo was in the Anti-Spam matrix, not the main matrix.

No one in your link defines what 'porn' is...

Is feminist art photography like this allowed? [Nsfw]

ziq wrote

I don't know what the context is for that photograph but it doesn't look like porn to me, judging without context.

Okay, good. Banning art wouldn't be constructive.

Since thumbnails are auto-fetched when you post an image and appear on the main page - users should take precautions when posting nudity. I don't want someone to get fired for simply loading the site.

So don't paste the link to the image in the URL field of the post. Instead, leave the URL field blank and link to the image in the Body field so no thumbnail is fetched. Also, always include [NSFW] in the Title field.

Could we have an option to tag a post as NSFW, like reddit does? That way, it would just show a thumbnail stating it's NSFW, and we wouldn't have to put it in the title. (Not that we can't do the method you've described here; it just seems like a separate concept such as this should have a feature to go with it.)

True. Remember when the site was spammed with porn? Lucky me that I checked Raddle at home before going to work and opening the site there.
