Yahoo! Ruins the Only Thing Tumblr Had Left Going For It

Via Zdnet:

Adult Tumblr blogs now removed from every form of search possible


Summary: Rather than leave adult content alone Yahoo’s Tumblr has eliminated its Erotica category, disabled search engine indexing for adult blogs, and removed adult Tumblrs from all internal search. Users are furious.

Well, technically, Marissa Mayer didn’t lie, they did leave the adult blogs alone … VERY alone.

My personal favorite Tumblr of all time is: http://indifferent-cats-in-amateur-porn.tumblr.com/ (NSFW) Which was everything I hoped it would be and more.

Oh Marissa Mayer. My dream of creating the complementary “Overly Concerned Dogs in Amateur Porn” Tumblr is dead now because of you.

Yahoo! Inc.  If I was your shareholder, I would tell you to just crawl into Rupert Murdoch’s asshole and die. (It can join myspace in the grave of all graves.)


[EDIT/UPDATE: Tumblr officially responds to outrage. Zdnet post was apparently misleading. Here is a link to a Tumblr Staff post regarding NSFW content on Tumblr: http://staff.tumblr.com/post/55906556378/all-weve-heard-from-a-bunch-of-you-who-are]

    Seriously? Now where am I going to go if I want to see nearly naked women who don’t know how to take a selfie?

        I see this. I was going to say, if there’s one thing that the internet loves, it’s porn. That’s what the internet is for.
