Computer Tyme advertise themselves as a free speech hosting provider, and textually quoting their site: “We are very strong supporters of free speech and free expression and resist any attempts of governments to impose limits on what can be said on the web“.
To be clear about CTyme, which is based in the US, they also say on its site that content not allowed on its self called free speech hosting is: “child pornography, extreme hate speech, and ripping off intellectual property“.
After my bad experience with free speech Crisishost (see post Review: Free Speech webhost Crisishost) I decided to test how far free speech goes for CTyme.

I have been looking at CTyme free speech hosting rules and I see that
you do not allow child pornography.
I wanted to host child pornography stories, text only stories with no
pictures, which are legal in the US and Europe. I wanted to ask if this kind of content would be allowed.
