Attack models abound on the entire fediverse.
It is inherently a non-secure protocol we are running on.

i mean honestly you may think I‘m joking with I Probably Could Do A Better Job Than Whoever Ran Tumblr or that clearly this is hubris but consider this:
Yahoo bought tumblr for 1.1 billion USD
Verozon just sold tumblr for, reportedly, 3 million USD, maybe less
