Because nothing says Christmas like porn and giving to the needy

I discovered my website, www.crankoutloud.com, if you maybe forgot, is being flagged as “porn” by at least one major web filtering service. A friend of mine went to my site successfully one day, only to attempt going to my site the very next day, where he was stopped cold with a message that the web category “Porn” is not allowed.

Say what?? My site is sooo not affiliated with porn. Really! I believe what irks me the most about this “porn” label from whatever internet powers that be is that they must have strictly judged my site by a few choice words within my blog posts. Words, people! So do I have to filter my own blog content? I’m thinking nope. I’m thinking this whole porn label may open up a whole new world for me. Maybe I’ll gain a whole new perverted reader pool.

So that wraps up Part 1 of this blog post.

Part 2 is the part about giving to the needy. Ah, you were wondering how I was going to link porn and charity together, weren’t you? I’m not. Like I just said, Part 2 is about charity.

So, I’d like to encourage my dear reader(s?) to give to your favorite charity/cause this season, if you are able. And, if you do not necessarily have a favorite charity, the Bloggess has some cool opportunities for giving on her site. There’s Project Night Night, or you can buy an animal(s) or honey bees for a family, or you can find someone in need right there within The Bloggess comments. I’m thinking about buying some honey bees. Hey, as long as they are not delivered to me or anything, then it’s all good.

If you have some favorite charitable causes or ideas, feel free to include them in the comments. You know, to share with my other dear reader.

  1. I had such expectations after reading the title… Thinking, “Am I needy?” Was it Clinton that said, Depends on what AND means?
    (Well, Ok, maybe he said “IS means”). Glad you explained it.

  2. What a nightmare about the porn thing. Or not. I guess it depends on who is looking you up.

    We adopt a family through our local cancer institute. This year my lovely husband chose a family of eight. EIGHT. As in eight people who will not have Christmas if we don’t fulfill their Christmas wish lists. We can’t afford that. Fortunately after my melt down, he was able to find another family to split the list with us so now we only have to buy presents for four people. It worked out well, because this adopt-a-family thing is the only way I get to shop in the little girls’ section, and I get really excited about that for at least a minute.

    1. I suppose I’m just fanning the “porn” flames by actually putting “porn” in this post’s title and now it’s all in the comments.

      You are a much better person than I, that’s all I can say about the adopt a family. I do like the idea of getting to shop for a little girl though. 🙂 I have two boys and my nieces are getting too old for My Little Pony and cutsie little girl things.
