    Hi,

    I am using open DNS in our cafe networks, but since day before yesterday, OpenDNS.com stoped orkut.com saying its one Adult web site...

    Man had to work hard to get all networks out from OpenDNS.com

    :(

    am dere from past a yr
    and have Lodz of friends and found all my school mates and some relatives too
    that is awesome place but coz its a open forum and some bad elements always try to spoil environment
    ya dere is reporting system for porn iten or such stuffs but
    coz of numerous profile mods or admin are not doin well to clean these things
    everywhere we find both types of ppl
    whom to chose and whom to not
    it depends upon us

    so, still the question is, can it be called an Adult Service !!!! as their policy doesnt allow porn or such, free open mined discussions are there, cant see any thing which a 13 or 15 year old should not read...

    Jah !!!

    Challo consider me a fellow who singned in to orkut.com for 1st time today, but i belive many here is reguler users, and still even we are in debate that whether its Adult or not !!!

    :( :(

    every one seems as confuse as me :p

    See let me clear some thing, Log in to yahoo chat rooms, their only adult suff going on, now still Yahoo Chat is consider to be a service which a 11 year old too can use

    then what makes Orkut.com a adult service here I see strong policy and reporting services are over Porn and such !!!

    you get prior notification when entering such chat rooms and the adult content is only limited to that specific area. while in orkut everything is open. the adult profiles are not categorised.

    Re: orkut.com a Adult Web Site ??

    LOL :D . What's the difference even if it's categorised as adult or otherwise? There is a debate on that though. There is lot of adult content and adult matchmaking and call girl/guy stuff in orkut, it's just a matter of people searching. And with that amount ever increasing, regardless of what their policies are, when you have more adult stuff on a site, what's the problem in categorizing that site as adult? After all, sites like OpenDNS is not telling you not to go and visit that site or anything is it? It's just categorising the content available online.
