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
@deadsuperhero it wouldn’t surprise me if something like that didn’t pop here, on diaspora, or pixelfed
@hankg Maybe even PeerTube? 😛
I don't really see this as a bad thing at all, actually. As long as the newcomers can learn relatively quickly to properly CW their content.
@deadsuperhero I’d be worried about overloading servers but that would be a thing we’d have to address eventually hopefully anyway so...
@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.
@dirb Hopefully it gets called Sexogram or Fapplr or something like that.
@deadsuperhero I was wondering what everyone was talking about 👍
