    Read in the news that Yahoo will be acquiring Tumblr. Will Yahoo ban adult oriented stuff on tumblr?
    "Tumblr also bears a fair amount of unsavory content that may unsettle advertisers. Pornography represents a fraction of content on the site, but not a trivial amount for a site with 100 million blogs.[nytimes]"

    I never understood why these companies are so anti-porn. I remember when paypal refused to allow any adult ebay transactions. But then when they saw how much money it was generating for ebay, I guess their morals went out the window.
