“You have posts that contain adult content which violate our Community Guidelines.”
Really? This was a surprise to me — I don’t recall ever posting to Tumblr. So I clicked the “Review” button and found these 9 images, which are definitely mine (I recognize my captions) sitting in Tumblr jail.
These seem to be long lost photos from an old Suffering Sunday article given that all 9 of these lads are suffering.
So I searched my Suffering Sunday archives and discovered that these same 9 images were posted to this blog on Sunday, 3/31/2013. Now that I think about it, I recall that I was exploring at one time whether I ought to switch this Blog to a Tumblr site to make it easier on me to just upload and go.
So I must’ve done a test upload of these 9 images to see how it would go. Boy, I’m sure glad I didn’t make the switch or we would’ve lost a ton of great stuff in the Takedown!
Plus I want to give you a sense of what they are flagging as inappropriate. All 9 of these benign, non-sexual images. Really? This shows what happens when you let an Algorithm make decisions.
While I admit that Alberto’s cock is pretty prominent in this image, I believe it’s photo-shopped anyway — not his real cock. So where is the sexual content, Tumblr Algorithm? Huh? Huh? Where?
So to my fellow Tumblrs out there, I can feel your pain. I was a victim of the Algorithm myself. Every image I’ve ever posted to Tumblr (all 9 of them) was flagged as “a violation of the Community Guidelines” and I feel shame.
Based on my experience, where even these plainly SFW images are being blocked as NSFW, I can only imagine what hell the Tenacious Tumblrs are going through to keep their sites up and running and their rasslin’ images available for our enjoyment. Hang in there boys, I appreciate you.
