In my Hotmail account this morning is a message from the Windows Live Spaces team that reads:

Hello {Live Spaces ID},

We have found images involving Nudity (Exposure of female breast) on your Space, {Live Spaces ID}. Please remove all such images from your Space within 120 hours or your space will be disabled. If you have questions about the types of images allowed on Windows Live Spaces, please visit our Code of Conduct at:

http://spaces.live.com/coc.aspx

You may also check the Code of Conduct link at the bottom of any Windows Live Spaces page.

Sincerely,

Susan
Windows Live Spaces Customer Support



It looks like I'll have to keep these tasteful, black and white nude images of WNBA star Lauren Jackson to myself! LJ posed nude in an Australian magazine, Black+White, that featured Olympic athletes who were set to compete in Athens in the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Oh well... Innocent

Hmmm. You can't really go against the wave of puristanism that propagates in the US in the last few years, but also have to think that the Live Spaces service in general (as others such as myspace or whatever) are accessible to minors.

Some stuff that we can say here in New Zealand are too non-PC to be said in that country. I actually think that PC is something that reduces the freedom of people by trying to create non natural boundaries to expression.

And going even further, if these are pictures from a magazine, then you shouldn'y share, because they would fall under the copyright protection anyway.

As Mauricio says, Microsoft is pandering to US puritanism on Live Spaces, and it probably doesn't have any other option. An American friend once said that the US consists of two narrow strips of liberal thinking population along the east and west coasts, with a massive, conservative, religious hinterland sandwiched inbetween.

However, as I noted in my blog recently, this censorship has the side-effect of silencing legitimate discussion. Until Microsoft understands this, stay off Live Spaces. There are plenty of other blogging services or social networking hangouts that don't censor your thoughts.

And, seconded about uploading copyrighted work. Don't.

BOO! BOO!
Everyone should be able to view the beautiful nakedness of Lauren Jackson. Wink

I've had these images on my (MSN) Live Space for ages... but with that said, only in recent months has the Space been configured for public access.

I was surprised to receive the message - I can only assume that they have a team of people that randomly(?) inspect the contents of each Space?

One of the many reasons I like Live Spaces is because it has a MUCH cleaner look than other 'spaces' out there. (Excuse the pun.) Laughing

"Cleaner" look? I think it's so cluttered and people can make it so ugly. Only myspace can be worst than that.

Well... if give anyone a blank wall and a paint brush (or spray can for that matter), the results are gonna be quite different.  Mine has a nice clean look to it. Tongue out  (IMO)
