Google is backing down (some) on its Blogger crackdown. Instead of enforcing a salacious images ban on all content beginning March 23, they're just going to enforce their existing porn ban more aggressively. Some bloggers are relieved.
Gay blogger and activist (and what would we do without him, look at butt pics all day?) Joe Jervis did something he almost never does over the past few days—he banned some commenters and deleted some of their offensive words.
With so many controversial gay issues that lead to spirited debates of hundreds of comments on many of his posts, what finally led to such a crackdown?
Joe tells Boy Culture:
What an honor to be included on Wicked Gay Blog's readers' list of Top 5 blogs of 2014...and in such good company, too!
Come check out Boy Culture on Facebook—make it a New Year's resolution.
When you're a blogger, you take the good (free tickets, great opportunities to meet fascinating people, the ability to express your opinion to a wide audience every day, positive reinforcement from supportive readers) with the bad (scorched-earth comments from anonymous anti-fans, the occasional rejection of an interview request, some people assuming you're a public service and that you have to publish anythnig they want).
One thing I really never get over, though, is the odd push-pull from some quarters—they want you, they don't want you...it changes day to day.
Case in point: I would routinely get news tips from a gay magazine on a weekly basis. They'd encourage me to post their stuff, which I often did since I run a personal blog with a gay slant and they're a classy gay magazine that has great content. Why wouldn't I?
But then I wouldn't get invited to their annual party in NYC, which each year I would point out and then would be told they'd correct it the following year.
Surfing the internet is a thing enjoyed by practically everyone nowadays, and gay men are by no means an exception to this rule. It’s been another great year for the internet’s gay community, with a huge amount of new sites being released, a large number of different groups finding their place on the web, and awareness of gay issues continuing to be spread far and wide.
Here are some of the best sites of the moment!

Gaming has truly become the pastime of our age, with every group across society enjoying the act of kicking back and enjoying a few relaxing games. GayGamer is the prime portal for the homosexual community’s gamers, and has all of the news, reviews, features and forums one would expect from a gaming site, but all geared towards the gay audience.
