In other news, contrary to Zuck's remarks to CNN, Facebook is not a positive force.

So, here's something I never thought would actually happen... Tumblr is actually banning nudity on its site (with some narrow exceptions) stemming from an incident with child pornography that got them removed from the Apple Store, though the official reason is to create "a safe place for creative expression".

I mean... I'm all for banning illegal stuff on a website (who isn't) and Tumblr should have been doing a better job filtering that horrific shit out (it can't be that difficult), but why all nudity... it seems like more of a way to get them back into Apple's (puritanical) good graces. That and free expression for a lot of people includes nudity given the amount of NSFW material I remember being on the site back in college. I see their userbase shrinking a whole load once this takes effect.

This will be the final blow for Tumblr. It'll lay in peace right there with Myspace.

MySpace... I hope Facebook will be joining that rot in the abyss soon enough.

But as for Tumblr, the memes exploding on the site include a lot of Titanic references, there's no recovering from a heavy-handed decision like this.

It also seems their filter is of such QUALITY that it managed to flag their own announcement on the ban as porn.

I knew Tumblr had a reputation as THE place to be for little known fetishes, but pr0nbanning as a means of getting off takes the cake... :devil:
