This is not a long winded whinge, I’ll try to be as short and to the point as possible.
1. Since the acquisition by Yahoo, Tumblr has been getting “un-cooler” everyday, not like in a big way but in little irritating things that are building up into what I think will be a catastrophic crescendo.
2. Up-to 5 of my favourite blogs have been deleted. One of them being “ratchetmess.tumblr.com”. I don’t know if it’s the old Tumblr staff doing this or it’s new policy by yahoo, I’m guessing the latter.
3. I have a feeling that you guys at Yahoo don’t have a fucking clue about what Tumblr is about. Case in point “Ratchetmess”, I understand it was banned because of copyright issues? I mean WTF does copyright come into play here? it’s not like they charged people to look at the site or anything. It was all about getting a laugh and sharing funny photos. I know countless other sites that have suffered the same fate. TUMBLR IS A COMMUNITY NOT A MARKET PLACE. I think you guys should employ the time-tested strategy of lurking out first till you understand what the fuck it is that this site is about. After that you can now bring about your bright ideas.
