@Elizafox I mean, yeah, possibly.

But Tumblr was removed from the App Store specifically due to CP, not porn in general.

Tumblr could be fighting this and they could instead have better processes to crack down on CP like similar services of their scale do.

Instead they took the nuclear option. And now they'll die. Not that Yahoo/AOL/Verizon cares.

@LottieVixen or... shortly after I think. I don't remember. A while.

@LottieVixen Damn wish I had known. I've been here since the instance was founded.

@LottieVixen Yeah, idk I wish I had time to work on this too. I feel like there's a great opportunity to create an open platform to share this type of content without pressure from a giant megacorp looming over it.

I mean it was only a matter of time after tumblr got bought by yahoo got bought by aol got bought by verizon. Corporate centipede.

@LottieVixen o hai I didn't realize you helped admin this mastodon! Awesomeeeee!

I guess mastodon instances can fill in here somewhat but Tumblr's got a much nicer UX for that sort of content.

Man. Someone should make a new Tumblr-killer but with a promise that (consensual, legal) adult content will always be allowed.

Independent blogs are great and all but tumblr really shined with content discovery and whatnot. It's gonna be difficult to replace.

My favorite part of Mastodon is I can trash-talk Comcast and not get a response like "Hi! We're sorry to hear that. We really care about you!"

@nolan Hi, I work for comcast, and was wondering what's wrong? I'd love to fix this for you.

Just kidding, I'd never work for comcast.
