Lazy’ Tumblr Porn Rules Now in Force

0 Comments

New rules about adult content on blogging site Tumblr, which have upset many of its users, have come into force.

The site no longer allows such material but said existing posts that fell foul of its new policy would be hidden, not deleted.

It also tried to reassure users that Tumblr would remain a place for free expression.

However, in response to concerns about the accuracy of its software, Tumblr acknowledged it currently often wrongly blocked content because of poorly performing algorithms.

“Having a post mistakenly flagged as adult totally sucks,” the company said in a blog post on Monday.

“We understand and agree that there have been too many wrongfully flagged posts since we announced the policy change.”

It said it would encourage users to report incorrectly flagged content in order to help train its system.

Unhappy users accused the company of taking too blunt an approach to adult material instead of investing in more targeted ways of cracking down on the posting of illegal material.”Tumblr is being lazy by banning all adult content,” one user wrote. “They’re punishing those of us who depict adults being adults.”
