Dost test

To avoid a global and / or local ban on 8kun's boards, do not upload images of real children, sexualized or not.

But what is sexualized, really?

From Wikipedia:

The Dost test is a six-factor guideline established in 1986 in the United States district court case United States v. Dost [636 F. Supp. 828 (S.D.Cal. 1986)].

In order to better determine whether a visual depiction of a minor constitutes a "lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area" under 18 U.S.C. §2256(2)(A), the court develoo ped six criteria. Not all of the criteria need to be met nor are other criteria necessarily excluded in this test.

Due to the context of anonymous imageboards, the 8kun administration does not tolerate images of real children and Global Volunteers will treat such content as either child pornography or a Dost violation. Such content will be deleted and the IP address that posted it will be banned permanently.

Especially, nude photography of children (breasts / genitals), even within the context of "legal" nude photography (such as nudist colonies), are not allowed under any circumstances given the context of the website they are being posted on [please refer to United States of America v. Michael Arvin (900 F.2d 1385)].

For the purposes of 8kun, given the legal grayness surrounding three-dimensional (3D) computer-generated child pornography and the so-called "real dolls" and how similar they are to real children, 3D renderings that violate the aforementioned Dost test and are so realistic as to be indistinguishable from real children are also not allowed.

Furthermore, 8kun Global Volunteers are not required to research links you post to see if they actually contain child pornography. If you give a Global Volunteer, a Board Owner, or a Board Volunteer any reason to believe that a link contains child pornography or a Dost violation, he or she will delete it without clicking on it. You may not personally agree with this, but as a clearnet website hosted in the United States of America, 8kun is required to comply with the laws in force. Please respect that.
