Beyond financial turmoil, Tumblr was pulled from the Apple App Store briefly last year as it worked to combat child pornography hosted on the platform, an ordeal that led to a new and wildly unpopular site policy banning adult content of all stripes. Matt Mullenweg, CEO of Automattic Inc., told the Journal he intends to uphold the adult content ban and explore ways to integrate Tumblr and Wordpress. Neither of those statements is likely to be received well by veteran users of Tumblr Tumblr, its technologies, and its 200 or so employees are being sold to Automattic for an undisclosed amount. We've reached out to both parties for additional details and will update if they become available SHARE THIS STORY f https://gizmodo.com/... feniczoroark: goopy-amethyst: montydragon: (x) oh fucking boy Oh lookThe banThe ban that made tumblr lose moneyThat banThe ban they want to upholdThe ban that specifically makes them lose moneyThe money loss ban Thanks mate you made me spit out my coffee through my nose

Oprah Announced She Is Not Running For 2020 Presidency - blogged by @worldwidekeege (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oprah didn’t get as far as she is in life by being childish and going tit for tat with everyone that tried to intimidate her, and it won’t start with Trump, even with the power he has as our country’s president. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Saturday, Trump went to a campaign rally and attempted to defame Oprah’s throne by claiming he knew her “weaknesses” and would enjoy running against her because of that. He implied that he would use those weaknesses against her to make the experience “painful”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, Oprah went on CNN’s highly popular, “The Van Jones Show” on Sunday and announced that she will not be running for president in 2020, but for anyone that plans to, she has some dear advice for them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The bold and powerful philanthropist said… “I will say to whoever is going to run for office, do not give your energy to the other side… Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don't believe in. Do not spend an ounce of your time on that." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Winfrey went on to add that all of the speculation for her to run “humbly” and “deeply” moved her, but we won’t be able to see her as our first female president. When asked by the CNN host, Van Jones, what she would say if she were able to talk to Trump for just 10 minutes, the iconic role model kept it cute and quaint. Simply stating: “I would Only speak if I felt that I could be heard.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Very well said, Oprah. That’s why we love you!

Carl Anthony Payne Says He’s All for a ‘Martin’ Reboot, Thinks It’s Long Overdue - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, it may be safe to say that the possibility of a ‘Martin’ reboot is headed in the right direction… and everyone seems to be on board with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with CarlAnthonyPayne—who portrayed the role of ‘Cole Brown’ in the original series, and when asked about the promising project, he actually gave some hopeful responses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “People are talking.

(photo via tbc34) dama3 old school hate mail jakovu Imagine how pissed you have to be to engrave a rock thesparkofrevolution Ok but there was this guy called Ea-nasir who was a total crook and would actually cheat people ought of good copper and sell them shit instead The amount of correspondences complaining to and about this guy are HILARIOUSS blacktyranitar Are you telling me we know about a specific guy who lived 5000 years ago, by name, because he was a huge asshole thesparkofrevolution More like 4000 years ago but yes. Ea-nasir and his dodgy business deals prokopetz And we haven't even touched on the true hilarity of the situation yet. Consider two additional facts He wasn't just into copper trading. There are letters complaining about Ea-nasir's business practices with respect to everything from kitchenwares to real estate speculation to second-hand clothing. The guy was everywhere The majority of the surviving correspondences regarding Ea- nasir were recovered from one particular room in a building that is believed to have been Ea-nasir's own house Like, these are clay tablets. They're bulky, fragile, and difficult to store. They typically weren't kept long-term unless they contained financial records or other vital information (which is why we have huge reams of financial data about ancient Babylon in spite of how little we know about the actual culture: most of the surviving tablets are commercial inventories, bills of sale, etc.) Sale, etc.), mingtbes re comve of his angry letters- hundreds of But this guy, this Ea-nasir, he kept all them - and meticulously filed and preserved them in a dedicated room in his house. What kind of guy does that? Ancient Businesses Complaints

Men are born to pursue women. Yes, you can pursue a man if you want to, but in most cases that's just an obvious sign that he's not into you. It's not natural for a man to sit back and let the woman do all the work. For a man who claims to like you to sit back and allow you to do all of the calling, textina, dating arrangements, talks about the future etc, it's pretty obvious where you stand in that man's life. When a man really wants you, you won't have to chase after him like he's some celebrity who barely has time for a fan. You will be his priority. @Regrann from @silentlyspokenproject - AWOMANSWORTH❤ ____________________________________________ No more chasing GHOSTS... No more room for lingering DOUBT...

zsl-edge-of-existence: Slow lorises are the world’s only venomous primate.  The venom is secreted from a gland in the loris’ elbow which the loris licks, mixing the secretion with their saliva.  The loris can then inflict painful, toxic bites, and will also lick the fur of their infants before leaving them, covering their bodies with the toxin to deter predators.  Wildlife biologists have said that the bite of the slow loris is among the most painful in the world, pain which is exacerbated by the fact that the loris will bite down and refuse to let go in an effort to inject as much venom as possible into the wound.  Some victims have found that the only way to make the loris let go is to submerge it in water.   There is some speculation that, rather than being truly toxic, the venom of the slow loris actually induces a severe allergic reaction in humans.  The only recorded human death due to slow loris bite occurred due to anaphylactic shock.
