An announcement on the official Tumblr staff blog explains that the decision to revise the service’s content policy is not being taken lightly as its staff is “deeply committed to supporting and defending [its] users’ freedom of speech.” But as a company, those folks have decided that certain and specific types of content — including spam and identity theft — ”aren’t welcome on Tumblr.”
how do you regulate that… also, it is kind of a serious loss of users - they’ll just move onto another forum, if not tumblr there is always something new - pintrest, etc. before there was tumblr there were blogs and livejournal communities, etc.
NOT THAT I AM PROMOTING EITHER OF THESE TWO THINGS, I just feel like to each their own, and if you live in a bubble of self hate, you’re going to keep doing that regardless of where you express it on the internet. It helps to have a community though.
There is a fine line between ED blogs and weight loss blogs and fitness blogs etc. whatever. I do like the “public service announcement” idea - but maybe start with that.
#unpopularopinionblog edit: maybe I am defensive because I spend a lot of time on the self-harm tags because I do. fun fact not really.
I just want to meet a nice normal intelligent person who doesn’t mind listening to me rant on for hours about british bands and fucking art history.
I promise I can be funny sometimes, and I’ve got a pretty sick sense of humor/sarcasm.
I’ll cook you dinner like on tv and be really domestic, because I like doing things that please other people.
I’ll drive you wherever you want to go and spend hours making a mixtape for the car, even if you don’t notice it.
I really like things that mean something. I could make everything so fucking worth it for someone, as they could for me. God I just am kind of a passionate person and I don’t deal with bullshit well.
I think I’ve seen the notebook one too many times. Idealistic standards that will never come true. Alone for life.
