inothernews: I love everyone in the mainstream media today talking about Tumblr like they know all about Tumblr. “It’s full of porn!” they say. ”Tumblr hasn’t succeeded in mobile!” they also say. “WTF are y’all talking about?” asks everyone actually on Tumblr. I will admit I often forget that there is porn on Tumblr until I click on something unfortunate.
