Tumblr has announced it's banning adult and explicit content from its system from December 17, 2018

Today, we’re taking another step by no longer allowing adult content

Heh ... adult in which community(ies)?

Slippery slopes ... road to abuse, but as the old judge said a long time ago: "I'll know it when I see it."

Which opens up a whole different can of worms.

NOTE: I am not suggesting this NOT be put in place, only that the road taken can diverge from good intentions very quickly.

Yes, there is - and historically has been - a lot of 'shock' bait on Tumblr. Unfortunately there have also been many marginalised sex/gender groups that have built/found communities there that are likely to be affected as well.

I've always been amused? in the sexual prudery of so many quite accepting of violence pr0n. A rigid dichotomy that is amazingly brittle and self righteous.

Frankly, if those communities do get the boot rather than being accommodated as adult rather than pr0n I expect that Tumblr will be terminal.

Over the years I made several attempts to incorporate Tumblr into my SMM mix but nothing gelled as I'd hoped. Still, I never like to see a channel disappear.

For the people whose website habits are not as deplorable as mine, here [cracked.com] is a sampling of what Tumblr deems to be adult content (along with a specimen or two of content they have no trouble with).
