Hi palulio

Yola does not condone these types of sites. Please refer to the TOS regarding what would be acceptable/unacceptable content.

@Littleus Thanks!

Palulio: thank you for taking the trouble to ask this question. I hope many people will read my response. Yola does not host any pornographic or adult content, nor can the Yola toolset be used for the creation of such sites. We hope that no one wastes time and effort on building sites of this nature, only to have them shut down.

We ask that if any such sites are seen, they be reported to our abuse department: http://www.yola.com/report-abuse

This policy is apparently no longer in effect. I know of a Yolasite that is unquestionably obscene but it is permitted to remain up. It was reported to Yola abuse more than three days ago, but it's still there.

Laura, it is more helpful when we are given accurate information, rather than inaccurate. When I reported the pornography site, I received an email telling me that action would be taken within 24 hours and that I would be informed of it. That was almost four days ago. The site is still up, and I have heard nothing.

Btw, the site which I flagged for pornography offers various services by "girls" AND has an advertisement at the very TOP of the page using a four-letter word and offering services related to that word. I'm surprised to learn that a banner of that kind requires such extended review.

For the sake of anyone who might read this thread, I feel I should clarify Laura's words to me. She refers to "all" my submissions, which suggests that there have been quite a few of them. That is not true.

I have reported two sites. In the first, the site-owner's purpose was apparently to tell people how to obtain and use pirated software. It seemed to me that Yola might want to look into the legitimacy of this use. The second site has already been described - it uses a four-letter word at the very top of the page, asking if people would like to indulge in this activity with one of the "girls" available at that site.

If Yola decides to permit these kinds of sites, that is presumably its prerogative. I reported them only because Yola has stated that it wants to run a legal, clean business and because I believed that.

Hi Keara

I wholeheartedly agree about such sites needing to be removed and thus is the reason that I as well have located and reported many sites to which all were removed within a short while by YOLA. I can assure you, one member to another they do care very much about this matter and that type of activity using their website builder. If they did not they would not have removed the ones that I reported these last few years.

There is however some review which I am sure needs to be taken into account to remove a site as it is not a task which can be done without some caution and concern as to the outcome. Please allow them the chance and time it takes to follow up on your submission.

Additionally, thank you for your alerting them and keep up the good work...

Happy site building
Ed

Ed,

Thanks very much for your reassuring and informative reply. I've had a very favorable impression of Yola until now, and am pleased to think that impression is deserved. :-)

Thank you again.
