philosophy-and-coffee: positive-memes: Caring community   This is the kind of shit people did back in the Depression. When mortgage holds would try to sell a farm, everyone in the community showed up and strong armed any serious bidders away. They had the ‘penny auction’ tactic, where farmers would bid absurdly small amounts on farm equipment and land (while glaring intensely) until the auctioneer realized they needed to take what they were getting, or get their legs broken. This kind of stuff saved so many farms, they’d buy off 500+ dollar mortgages (which were huge amounts back then) for less than 100 dollars and give it back to the farm owners.    The lesson to take away is that only direct action and community organizing can help in such dire times. : philosophy-and-coffee: positive-memes: Caring community   This is the kind of shit people did back in the Depression.

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
