TIL Hetzner doesn't allow adult content, yet half the fediverse is hosted by them

@ChlorideCull i wonder if they only mean it in the context of it being non-consensual etc.

@nilsding @ChlorideCull OVH allows adult content on their hosting services, but they restrict it to the expensive web hosting plans, or more likely also their dedicated server plans.

Naturally, they do require that it's all legal content, and that adult content is age gated somehow.

@kode54 @ChlorideCull this just makes me wonder for how long they’ll continue to allow that... seems like corporations really dislike having to deal with adult content these days :|

@ChlorideCull do folks host their image content, or just the running of the instances themselves? Doesn't masto optionally offload image storage elsewhere?

@k depends on the instance, a decent amount hosts it themselves, or proxies it through their instance

adult content can also be written

@ChlorideCull hmm... that one sounds like it comes down to spirit vs rule? I assume they want to not deal with laws related to adult content, which mostly apply to photo and video, right?
