Brace yourself for a new influx of users, #fediverse! Tumblr is banning porn and sex-related content December 17th: https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/3/18123752/tumblr-adult-content-porn-ban-date-explicit-changes-why-safe-mode
@hankg One of my main reasons for participating in fediverse development is to eventually produce (or support, if somebody beats me to it) a federated #tumblr alternative. Tumblr has been on life support for quite a while now.
I do wonder how this will impact their bottom line, as I'm sure a BIG percentage of their bandwidth and storage expenditure is on porn, and users fapscrolling probably click on ads even less than average.
