All the Tumblr brouhaha is reminding me of Strikethrough on livejournal in 2008 (what essentially killed the site and drastically reduced its userbase, and what originally DROVE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY IN FANDOM, TO TUMBLR IN DROVES).

like, y'all know where your userbase came from, right? You know that if you ban adult content, what you're essentially doing is telling the people who made your site what it is to get fucked, RIGHT?

I honestly don't know how the fuck they expected this to play out. Like, do even five seconds of market analysis to figure out where you fit, and then, idk, don't get rid of the one thing that makes people keep using you?

I don't *use* Tumblr anymore, and I could have told them this.
