Friday Funny 1350: Random Stuff (and an Update on my Tumblr)

>> Friday, November 03, 2017

Here are a dozen funny random things that I WAS going to post on my Tumblr page... but then my Tumblr page disappeared:










This reminds me of a HUGE neighborhood party that local college
students threw a few years ago that they called "Tour de Franzia."
Wine in red Solo cups as far as the eye could see.















My Tumblr page has been deleted by Tumblr. It might be gone forever. Here's how it happened. On Oct 23rd, I tried to log in to Tumblr and got a message to reset my password because they found suspicious activity on my account. Then 2 or 3 days later, I got 2 e-mails back-to-back: the first said a post had been deleted because it was inappropriate, and the second saying my entire account has been deleted for violating it's terms. I post funny/stupid stuff, and I have NO idea what post was inappropriate (they sent a link, but DUH, the post had been taken down, so the link was pointless), and I've never had a post taken down before. I tried to appeal by basically saying "look, you saw suspicious activity a few days ago and then found something inappropriate on my blog. Isn't there a CHANCE that whatever was so inappropriate that my blog had to be deleted was posted by someone else? You know, the 'suspicious activity?' Look through my 10s of thousands of posts, and you'll see simply funny things." But, so far, I've gotten no response. That was last week, and I just tried appealing again yesterday. We'll see if I hear back or if my Tumblr is gone for good.

I was unaware that it was even possible to be so inappropriate on tumblr. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen straight up porn there.

I never commented or mentioned, but a few weeks ago I started getting weird spammy things when I went to your Tumblr page. It would redirect me to sites and pop windows would be blocked...that kind of stuff. I thought it might be connected to the softcore "advertising" that was prevalent on your side banner spaces. Anyway....might be related, might not be related?

Alecia, there totally is straight up porn in Tumblr. I’ve gotten a lot of inappropriate direct messages from porn sites.

And 331, someone else recently told me that too, so I took any advertising down a few weeks ago until it got figured out. I hadn’t thought that that had anything to do with it, but it could have.
