I truly believe that pornography should be banned. I'm sure that's what the Spoutible community wants.
But what about adult content that is not pornographic ? Some art and images of intimacy may contain nudity with out any creation of pornography in the eye of a beholder

5 years ago when I joined Twitter, I immediately received vile dick pics and at 70 I was not happy about that content. I do appreciate a safe space, such as spoutible, where I don’t have that nonsense. Everyone is respectful. I thank you for this platform.

There will always be someone rocking the boat and the more you personally engage the worse it will be. To the people who complain, a link to the ToS they accepted when joining is all they need. I'm sorry this is happening. Thank you for this new platform and your dedication to it.

One agrees to the policy when signing up. If one doesn't like the policy, then one is free to close account. There are many other platforms or create one from scratch.

It's a relief to hear from the source that no, LGBTQ images and sex workers are not being equated as explicit automatically the way past platforms have done, but it might make a lot of folks feel more protected to have that criteria displayed in the TOS as well. Appreciate Spoutible's transparency.

I like what you're trying for here but I do think what's considered explicit could be better specified in the TOS. LGBTQ users are on edge because in the past vague TOS have been abused to flag non explicit images of LGBT couples kissing or someone discussing their gender transition as explicit.

I support this policy. That said, I've read #3 at least a half-dozen times, and still cannot make sense of it:

"3. Sharing or posting SEXUALLY SUGGESTIVE OR EXPLICIT content, including images, videos, and text, THAT ARE NOT SEXUALLY EXPLICIT but still violate the community guidelines."

Reading this I would assume that actual sexual acts/pics qualify as content, as would, say a pic I have seen floating on Twitter...of Biden in a sexual act with Zelenskyy? Would be nice to have clarification since I am not quite sure myself.

@cbouzy , thank you, there is a time & place for most everything. I don’t assume that I can go to the hardware store and set up a table and start making pizzas. If I want pizza, I know where to go. If I want a 2 x 4, I know where to go. I’ll share on Twitter if I jump back into the fray. ☮️❤️🤙🏼

In support of the policies for your service and appreciate they may adapt and revise over time. As for explicit content, isn't TUMBLR still out there for that?

One of them called us "sexless weirdos," why because we know the difference between sexually explicit content and romance novels? The whole thing was mind-boggling to me and though they'll keep going this spout should be the last public word on it. They want the engagement.

They go further than "sexless weirdos" they are saying that since they're making this site "for kids" that it's built for pedophiles and groomers.

Well, if it makes me a "sexless weirdo" to not want to randomly come across some guy beating his meat in the "making waves" page, because they use hashtag manipulation, so be it.

i really respect that this is not a space for pornography- and it is clear. lets stick to that please!. But we also should caution against stigmatising sex workers- from all walks of life. People saying they don‘t want porn on this site is 100% understandable, but as a Queer/neurodivergent person, I

.. I hope people also understand that for many of us, this plays a part in our lives, and adult content should not be frowned upon with disgust. Sex work is real work, and people benefiting from sex work, to improve their lives should be respected not made to feel filthy.

Thank you, Chris. After seeing activist hashtags like Black Lives Matter get overrun with explicit porn videos on twitter, this is especially a relief.

I do agree. but I went throught ToS, and seems vague. I wasn't able to undestand if, e.g., covering the Folsom Street Fair it would be accettable here. or, is the Naked Bike Ride sexually explicit?

couldn't we have a "sensitive content" feat., for when adult and nudity are not exploitative?

Yes, also (apologies if this has been covered elsewhere) but as someone that works in short fiction: is it acceptable to post a link to a story that contains explicit content? Or is that also banned? And where’s the line? If the story mentions sex, but doesn’t get into details, is that okay?

I'm a romance reader and some of your detractors are favorite authors of mine. It's hurtful to me as a fan of theirs to see them conflate two different issues. Granted there are those who consider ALL romance "mommy porn" but those folks are just stupid.

Boundaries are necessary. Every site has them in one way or another. Twitter's are now "things Musk likes", FB's is what Zuck can get away with ... they all have 'em.

You have actual boundaries and they are needed. People who like that can come here. I believe that most people like boundaries.

I do appreciate @bouzy 's statement, but my understanding of the problem is that the terms of service aren't as clear as this? The parts about "sexually suggestive" don't explain what that means, and the ban on linking to anything "sexually explicit" seems like it could cause confusion too.
