Some time ago, Ai-chan made a thread talking about how Verizon identified that Tumblr's traffic had fallen so rapidly after their porn ban that they were looking to sell them. There were a lot of memes about this. https://forum.novelupdates.com/posts/4523440/ They claimed that the article was hogwash and they were not going to sell Tumblr. https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/tumblr-is-for-porn-again.86227/ Well guess what, they DID end up selling Tumblr! It was sold last month for way less than they paid them for, at 3 million dollars! Of course, Verizon paid 5 billion for everything Yahoo owns, but the only thing of worth that Yahoo still owned apart from their yahoo mail was Tumblr. In the grand scheme of things, it is the same as Verizon paying for the whole house for like $20,000 before selling the garage and everything in it (including the two Mercedes Benz) for 50 cents. https://www.washingtonpost.com/tech...ner-wordpress-just-bought-site-fraction-that/ https://www.cracked.com/article_26624_verizon-ruined-tumblr-just-sold-it-peanuts.html In comparison, even this bluefin tuna sold for much more https://www.washingtonpost.com/worl...okyo-fish-market-scarcity-clouds-celebration/ That's what happens when you kick out 90% of your users by banning porn, which has been the only thing most people go to your site in the first place. It's almost the same as google.com saying they will discontinue google search and google map. What do you have now? We knew it was going to happen. We said it was going to happen, but neither Verizon nor that douchebag Jeff D'Onofrio listened. And now what did we tell you? Sometimes you just have to get your ass out of your rich ass and listen to people when they tell you "Don't do it!" Now, the owner of Wordpress owns Tumblr. Will he reverse the decision to ban porn or will he stick to it? Nobody knows, his replies have been very ambiguous. However, we now know that the porn bot that tumblr uses no longer detects any 'female presenting nipples'. Was the bot deactivated? Who knows, but everyone who posts 'female presenting nipples' and sexual positions are no longer being flagged. For now, at least. https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/14/...utomattic-wordpress-verizon-changes-vergecast What do you think? Will tumblr become porn central again? Will wordpress people make it great again? Or will it continue to decline until death? Oh by the way, tumblr users already moved to bdsmlr.
