Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used.

The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly stated in a blog post published on Monday.


Every day, news like this makes the fediverse more attractive.

(Yeah right... maybe I'll do this one day, after I stop tearing walls out of my house and doing impulsive remodeling projects... like the one I started on Sunday afternoon about 4:00. Sheesh...)
