*tour guide voice* and if you look to your left, you can see the entire Doctor Who fandom collapsing in on itself
*tour guide voice* and if you look to the right, you can see all the Europeans on tumblr going insane over Eurovision
*tour guide voice* and if you would please sign this petition to save tumblr from the evil clutches of yahoo before you leave the premises, thank you
Everyone is missing the biggest problem here.
Fuck the ads. Fuck the links. Fuck the email stuff.
Yahoo explicitly forbids pornography and sexually suggestive material on their websites and all affiliates.
That means no more porn on Tumblr.
… God help us all.
BUT THINK OF ALL THE LOST FANART!!!
Not to mention all the fics.
go the fuck away, yahoo.
That means no more ‘suggestive’ material, where they define suggestive. That means censorship, plain and simple, in a way that has nothing to do with laws or public safety concerns and everything to do with ‘But we don’t want to seeeeee it!’ No. If I wanted that, I would be on another site. I come here because I can post ‘icky’ things for science and social reasons that would get shut down elsewhere. If that privilege goes away, so will I. Even if it were only ‘porn’ that was removed, it is still the blanket ban on material considered ‘socially unacceptable’ for no other given reason, and therefore I disagree on principal. This site is FOR the socially unacceptable. Don’t destroy it, even in part.
I’m not satanic but these are some damn good rules.
satan does not support rape, animal cruelty, or child abuse
when walking in open territory, bother no one. if someone bothers you, ask them to stop. if they do not stop, destroy them.
*Today on I Didn’t Know I was a Satanist*
I agree with all of these rules…I’m really uncomfortable now
It’s actually a cool religion.
“Hey, Tumblr can actually afford to have servers that don’t crash on a whim and can fix broken features now. Maybe they’re taking steps to make this website much more user friendly and overall work bett—”
“FUCK YAHOO YOU CAN’T TAKE OUR PORN AND GIFS AWAY!!!!”
“Nobody said anything about taking away anything.”
“C’mon. Seriously? Dude. Our PORN. Our GIFS. Our FEELS. Our HOME. GONE.”
“At no point were we told anything about any kind of content limitations being put forward. And nobody’s gonna even care about this deal in like a week. Just rela—”
“MORIARTY WAS REAL, HE BOUGHT TUMBLR, FEEEEEELS”
EDIT: Only if Yahoo backs off and leaves Tumblr out of their ‘no suggestive material’ clause. Otherwise we are signing up for censorship. Updates as to whether or not this would occur welcome!
I sometimes end the sentence with the wrong
I understood that reference
I understood all of the references except the actual post reference
someone should explain
It’s an Iron Man 3 reference, guys.
*imagining this gif conversation happened somehow, having little trouble inventing context* :3
I would buy that film.
Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
