actually they are. some are in fact worse. read the actual EULA. and all the services have been reported of deleting content with nudity. this is ALL services. at least all reputable services and reputable countries. those in less reputable countries I probably wouldn't trust with my content anyway.
Well, maybe they are and I've not dealt with it. It's not like I sign up for cloud accounts to store porn, but I haven't heard nearly as many issues from other services as with Skydrive. Perhaps, like you say, it's just not as big of news, but unless something is illegal I see no reason for any of these services to be snooping through your files and judging what you have uploaded. I guess that's why I don't really use cloud services for anything but to store some APKs and a few pics or wallpapers on here or there.
That said, I'm quite certain my camera uploads that I've tested out over times may have uploaded some files that could be considered questionable (hey... it happens, haha), and I've never had any issue with any other services. I'd remove said pics if asked for sure, I'd rather them not be uploaded, but I know Dropbox and Google Drive have never said anything. Skydrive continues to have people getting accounts shutdown for false positives. I suppose it's all the risk you take giving your data to someone else.
Edit: Reading the EULA of Dropbox it says no publishing or sharing materials that are pornographic, indecent, or racial, ethnic, or religious hatred, but says nothing about hosting them. They just don't want their service used as a place used to host that kind of stuff. I feel like that's the same stance many other services use. As long as you aren't linking people to files like that, they don't care if you save them privately. Never really tested it out though.
