The Vox article that I was interviewed for is up and running, and it contains some serious fuckign information about this whole fiasco.

Information that tumblr just straight up refused to provide to its userbase at all.

Unsurprisingly to those of us watching this website deteriorate over the last year, this full content purge and ban has been in progress for a solid 6 months. The date got moved up because of the child porn thing, but it was always coming for us.

Equally unsurprising: Tumblr’s management and ownership are absolutely destroying the actual staff working on it. The company has been hemoragghing senior staff without so much as a token attempt to keep them in place. So the drops in site quality are real, and wil probably only be getting worse.

Truly astonishing is the fact that apparently this crap was supposed to “double” the userbase by the end of next year. Boy, howdy, that’s not gonna work out well for them.

Verizon delete challenge

“the real problem was always that Verizon couldn’t sell ads next to porn.”

imagine being such a gigantic fucking moron that your plan is to buy a porn website and sell baby clothes on it.

“what’s that noise? it sounds like a million voices all yelling DUH at once. ah, probably just my imagination. where do i sign?”
