Tumblr udfører nu censur

TumblrTumblr har indført blokering imod visse søgninger på tjenesten.

Micro-blogtjenesten der ejes af Yahoo har fået censur.

Søgninger som #gay, #lesbian og #porn blokeres nu helt. Ifølge Tumblrs chef David Karp blokerer man uskyldige ord som gay for at forhindre voksenindhold i at dukke op, til trods for at man blokerer for helt legitime søgninger og dermed kraftigt begrænser den enkelte brugeres frihed.

The reason you see innocent tags like #gay being blocked on certain platforms is that they are still frequently returning adult content which our entire app was close to being banned for. The solution is more intelligent filtering which our team is working diligently on.
