Yahoo! has started censoring Tumblr
Violet Blue at ZDNet now reports:
Rather than leave adult content alone Yahoo's Tumblr has eliminated its Erotica category, disabled search engine indexing for adult blogs, and removed adult Tumblrs from all internal search. Users are furious.
As reported in The Atlantic, Tumblr CEO David Karp told Stephen Colbert:
We've taken a pretty hard line on freedom of speech, supporting our users, creation, whatever that looks like, it's just not something we want to police.
Violet Blue responds:
Now Karp just looks like an idiot, and Yahoo looks like it's completely untrustworthy.
