    Been scraping a lot of tumblrs lately using scrapebox and their vanity checker. They show as available and they are indeed 404s when I check them manually but when I try to register them they have already been taken? Why is this so?

    Some of the tumblrs I'm talking about: (available as of the moment and showing as 404s)
    80s-90s-supermodels.tumblr.com
    rufftoon.tumblr.com
    gardenofthequeen.tumblr.com

    Means they are banned, and banned tumblrs also show 404 so scrapebox will take them as avaliable.
    There is no way around this except to keep searching for available ones.

    Keep note of that tumblr, sometime after a short period of time, they are again available. Nobody knows why, I already searched news for that on the web, it seems a tumblr unknown feature

    I thought this may have been caused by dead proxies or something. Thanks, guys!
