Of course, I can completely understand Midjourney keeping the rules for prohibited content as vague as possible. The more specific the restrictions on the prompts that can’t be entered, the easier it becomes for bad people to get around them. That said, I would be interested in a full list of what words are banned by the developers. That doesn’t exist yet, but at least there’s a start: On Reddit, I stumbled across this Google Sheet with far more than 150 entries. It also contains another spreadsheet with five terms that are “surprisingly” not blocked. What Midjourney means by this, you can see below.
I intentionally stopped the generations after the first level so that I wouldn’t run the risk of losing my account. But that’s not supposed to happen as quickly as I feared, David Holz said just the other day.
Admittedly, the term itself is innocent, but what people have done with it is probably widely known. However, in my opinion, the curvy pictures capture the meaning excellently.
Again, it’s debatable whether the term was simply forgotten or if it’s intentional that it’s not forbidden – but I think more the latter. Sometimes with a little more, sometimes less detailed facial features, a goddess is definitely recognizable here.
Oddly enough, the plural of the word is banned, but in the singular it causes no problems. The results leave a lot of room for interpretation.
Although the vaguely worded rules even explicitly mention “gore” as prohibited content, a relatively obvious term is not blacklisted. I find the images surprisingly detailed and definitely scary, even in the low resolution.
“Tig ol’ biddies”
Finally, there’s a term that I certainly wouldn’t have thought of myself. Even if it doesn’t make any sense per se, a person can understand at a glance what is actually meant. Despite the literalism, Midjourney can also do something with it – and perhaps brings us closer to AI pornography than almost any other prompt.
