Interesting, I would like to see more, honestly.
I don't deal in porn/pot but games are increasingly labeled a vice and subject to regulation (esp gambling).
There anything about privacy/security (the Ashley Madison breach must have made people nervous)? How about navigating laws/regulations in different countries (EU GDPR and right-to-be-forgotten have been in the press a lot lately)? How about discussions regarding funding/investment; I'm betting anything even remotely close to a government is out of reach?

Privacy and security are always a concern; however, with the stuff I work on, it's not nearly as big as the data Ashley Madison had on their servers. We offload all payment info, and username/passwords are auto generated and handed to customers. Dealing with other countries is a huge deal though. We have to be conscious about what is legal in each country. If we have a site dedicated to a niche that isn't well received in a particular part of the world, then that area must be geo fenced off. Luckily our content is all pretty "vanilla", so not much to worry about there.

Just tried to take a look at part one. Didn't realize there would be a negative reaction, but it's the kind of thing I worried about that made me hesitant to bother posting anything at all. People are too entitled and easily offended anymore...

nailed it! When I posted the first one, it blew up with both sides of the spectrum. Some really great positive feedback, but also some really bad negative. It sucks, but I felt people needed to know more about it so I decided to do this one. Thanks for reading!
