A safe place for creative expression and community... unless you draw porn!!! Banned!!
I'm honestly baffled, what sort of agenda are they pushing with this?
It is well known Tumblr is used by underage girls who enjoy posting risqué pictures of themselves, I think this is likely the only way Tumblr saw it possible to reduce this usage on their site.
Still, rip Tumblr.
sometimes I forget that I'm probably the only person here that doesn't like sexual content.
sometimes I wish we could still buy other people titles
so they wouldn't forget things
How To Shoot Yourself In The Foot: A Guide by Tumblr
All anyone wanted was for spambots to be dealt with lmao
Even then, I have a blog where I shy away from anything NSFW, but I'm certain that the majority of people who follow me have a sizable amount of risque, lewd, and/or saucy stuff plastering their dashboards between all of my shitposts. I could see how banning users for posting tiddies could affect everyone else.
It's all bullshit fluff, they just want to end up on Apple's app store & be advertiser friendly for Yahoo/Verizon (their owners iirc)
It's for the $$$money$$$
true. "furry" is among those tags. I just feel that it's odd that most everyone's reaction to this is "how dare tumblr not want porn on their platform," instead of "this is an incredibly ham-fisted response by tumblr that is blatantly going to have further-reaching consequences than they intend".
My reasons to visit Tumblr have just dropped to zero.
holy shit wait, you mean to say that there was stuff on tumblr beyond porn?????
Good. Let tumblr be the containment site it always wanted to be. Meanwhile, this exodus of users can be a big opportunity for Facepunch to grow if we play our cards right.
