lmao apparently they sold Tumblr to the guys that own Wordpress for $3 million, when it was originally sold to Yahoo for $1 billion
$997 million. That's how much all those porn blogs they banned were worth

@roxy when they say "sex sells"...
@roxy $1,097 million, turns out.
@roxy What're you going to do with your $20 tumblr Roxy?
@roxy "It's just fun."
@roxy homestuck blogs $3000000
porno blogs $997000000
somebody good with websites help me budget this my venture capital firm is dying
@roxy this appears to be a clever scheme to get Tumblr people to use Wordpress.
@roxy honestly? I hope they do wipe porn patreons. Not because I want people to lose income, far from it, because banning the porn blogs made so many of those people realize they didn't need to rely on Tumblr or any big corporation and they found the fediverse.
I want them to find their fediverse from losing Patreon.
Just as a disclaimer, I just want to make sure it's understood I am *not* wishing anyone to lose income. I just hope they find something that will treat them better.
@roxy I really hope that sentiment got through the right way. :c
People who run porn patreons deserve a better deal.
@roxy also, most people who use Patreon deserve a better deal.
re: Semi-hot take?
@shadow8t4 I didnt really get where you were coming from at first but I can agree that it sucks to rely on a big corporation's whims lmao
@roxy It cost 997 million dollars to obliterate a massive queer community, especially the trans parts.
Much less what it did to sex workers and other such so-called undesirables.
They just got a little bit of pocket change back on some used merchandise, for they got exactly what they wanted from the investment.
