Blogger is a free service for communication, self-expression and free speech. We believe Blogger will increase the availability of information, encourage healthy debate, and create possible new connections between people. We believe that moderating this content is against a service that relies on free speech.
However, in order to uphold these values, we need to limit abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it promotes. Therefore, there are some limits on the type of content hosted by Blogger. The limitations we have identified are those that comply with both legal requirements and are intended to improve service in general.
