POST PLUS IS COMING, WHETHER YOU WANT IT OR NOT!
Despite the fancy survey, changes to the UI and TOS reveal we’re getting the service in the future whether we want it or not. Obviously, Post+ is a terrible idea that is trying to bank revenue on user content. Unlike patreon or onlyfans, tumblr’s primary focus is on FAN content. The legality of this is NOT in the users favor and as the new tumblr TOS states, said users will be entirely liable for whatever legal matters arise.
SO WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Besides filling out the survey, it’s time to show tumblr we mean business and show our displeasure by hitting them where it hurts.
We’re proposing a 24 hour log off as phase one of this protest.

As much as I hate to say this because this hellsite is a big part of my life, I think we should all participate in this. And you know what, it’s actually because this hellsite means so much to me that I think we should do this. post+ will hurt content creators and possibly shut down tumblr itself (though they’re much better protected than we could ever be). Don’t use post+. Use the link above and find when you should log off to help
