As we all know, ALL KNOW, last December Tumblr banned pornographic content, thus removing one of the most fun reasons for using it. A lot of users abandoned the platform not just because of the ban but also because tumblr started flagging sfw content when its crummy bots couldn't tell the difference.

But now it sounds like there might be a change coming. It sounds like Verizon is interested in selling the site and Pornhub is interested in buying. That would certainly allow the previously banned content to return.

It would be hilarious if that happens. I'd say go for it pornhub. Tumblr ain't much use aside from glorified personal blogs.

PARDON THE POLITCS BUT!!!

Isn't Tumblr a haven for Crazy Feminists and SJW figures to spout their politics onto media?

Wouldn't selling the site to Pornhub raise their ire cause you would think they would dislike Pornography as sexist or something?

Well, you can get them to defend pornography if you make it about free nipples and LGBT sexuality.

No, its a great place for artists to post art and fans to follow them, plus there are more then a few web comics that have used tumblr to post. I mean I suppose there are some crazies but I have yet to see a site that doesn't have them. Also, porn is more a left wing thing, conservatives hate pornographic because jesus.

Its Tumblr. It hasn't been relevant since Deviantart allowed nudity and fetish porn. Its the MySpace of self-important bloggers.

Yeah, as I understand deviantart has been on the decline for years and a lot of artists are annoyed by it.

Some people online get really, really up in arms over their cartoon porn art.

Nah, I hate porn for its over-consumption leading to rotting brains.

Deviantart is the one where the Popular Today page is list MLP inflation porn, nude ladies and anime OCs right? I thought Tumblr was more lax on their rules for a spell, then the deviants came back with the sure, show the vag rule and it was kinda done. Already had more users, now with nudity, and fetish porn, and that deeply unfortunate 'we can post underage girls in bikinis in suggestive poses because its art and they're 'models'' thing that's technically legal and just the worst.

You should start some weird cult to circumcise males so they wont want to touch themselves, that worked so well in the past.

The actual moderation on Tumblr was always pretty open to political content of any type and still is, it just happened to have a very vocal and at times somewhat tedious community of liberal progressive types, of course that community itself was very heterogenic.

As far as I'm aware, though, there was never any considerable friction between that community and the one using Tumblr for porn.

Porn hub is bad for a lot of reasons: questionable legality of some of the performers, revenge porn/rape videos being uploaded, alomost no vetting to speak of, rampant theft and plagiarism with almost no recourse, etc. Basically the last people I'd want in charge of a website where teens are figuring shit out sex wise.

And that's before we get into stuff like their PR team blatantly lying. Remember that time they were gonna plow the snow off the streets of some city, Boston I think? Blatant lie, they never did that.

Don't trust them as far as I can throw them. Best case scenario is that the tumblr porn bots become officially sanctioned tumblr porn bots

Seriously? A site called Deviantart that didn't allow nudity and fetish porn? Christ. Someone had a brainfade when they made that one.

Porn is an everybody thing. It's just that conservatives claim they don't look at the pictures, just read the articles.

Deviantart still doesn't allow ""porn"" as they define it. No sex allowed. Boobs, vags, and flaccid dongs are alright.
