What is up with Roku blocking pics on Photostream?

I can't believe that Roku has the gall to tell me what I can and can't post on my Photostream on my own television set.  No one else is supposed to see them anyway.  At any rate, none of them are anything that would get blocked anywhere else.  They are merely paintings dealing with military history.  You guys need to ease up on this censorship nonsense.

Re: What is up with Roku blocking pics on Photostream?

I also have this same problem. I never had any issues before, but now it’s starting to remove new images I try to upload. I even tested it with images that had already been successfully uploaded before, and it censors the copies when it didn’t censor it from being uploaded the first time. I even tried uploaded a duplicate of the same image. Just one that was saved twice. And one version got censored, and the other copy did not. So I’m not sure at all what it’s censoring. Or why it’s censoring anything at all.
