Tumbling Threats

An article by David Brooks on April 29, 2010


I don’t have a problem with Tumblr. I think it fits a need for a lot of people, provides some interesting functionality, and has a pretty good general sense of style. And though I’m not a heavy user, I found this notice a bit interesting when I went to recommend my friend Adrian’s Photography blog.

A threat, from tumbler

Instead of rolling with the fact that people sometimes recommend blogs, photos, etc. with ulterior and possibly shady motives, they opted to take a threatening stance on the matter. Apparently my account could be suspended if Adrian doesn’t keep the focus on Photography…

What would happen if Flickr or Twitter were to take that approach? It seems a bit heavy-handed in my opinion to threaten those of us who just wants to say “Hey, I like this, and I think others should too.”
