Alexis Texas wants
to be your friend
On September 11, a friend alerted us to this lovely young lady, who had been happily circling many of us. He warned us that her posts were most definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK because they weren't just racy, they were straight up pornographic.

NOTE: You will not be able to access the images unless you are one of the lucky folks she has chosen to circle. Sorry!

We all know about the Google "real common name" policy and it's resulting #Nymwars. Many people have been banned, but while that policy has a lot of gray area that leaves room for interpretation, loopholes and exceptions, the User Content and Conduct Policy is pretty clear on where it stands on pornography:
10. Sexually Explicit Material
Do not distribute content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts or sexually explicit material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.
This is reiterated on the Community Standards page that is linked to when you wish to report abuse.

My friends and I had our jokes and I shared her profile in hopes of garnering more attention from people who would use their Google-given right to report her as I did. I reported her profile for nudity, and went about my business, assuming that Google, who apparently wants to protect me from profiles like this, would take care of business.

Well, two weeks later, it turns out, Miss Texas is still alive and dicking on Google+. So, girl scout me reported her again for nudity, and then again for spam. For shits and giggles, I would have reported her for using a fake name, but there isn't actually an option for that. So instead, I climbed the ladder and sent a message to Googlers Natalie Villabos and Vic Gundotra. I was impressed that Mr. Gundotra responded almost immediately, thanking me for reporting it and stating that, "We're looking at this now."

I assumed that meant Google was looking into removing the profile immediately, as they promised would happen to blatant violators of their policy - as they have done with not-so-blatant violators in the past.

I guess what was actually meant was that they are, you know, looking at this. Teehee.

So that was on September 25, 2011. Today is the 27th. Shall we place bets on when she will finally be removed?

UPDATE: As of September 29, 2011, Ms. Texas' more lurid posts have been removed. The moral of this story? Pseudonym = insta-ban. Hardcore porn = extensive review.

  2. Google+ is social networking sites and many social sites enables pornography. Just two hours ago, i have enjoyed real porn which i got from colleague.

  4. Heh, yeah, they were examining it in full detail to be sure they were making the right decision. :D

    BTW you're a real blogger now, with quality trolls like that!

WHAT IS THIS?

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
