Let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact Tony Stark killed a man over a Dora the Explorer watch.
Sassy Han appreciation post.
Now that Tumblr is a Yahoo! property, just like the beleaguered Flickr, some are predicting the service’s death already and the deal hasn’t even been officially announced yet. Those people are dramatic teens who use Tumblr but that’s still a pretty big deal.
This is coming directly from the company that bought us out this morning for 1.1 billion dollars in hopes of using us as a stepping stone towards a successful revival and to build ad revenue, the company with blood still on their hands from a sordid past inked with the remnants of sites turned into vast wastelands shortly after the acquisition. The very company that will remove, corrupt, and ultimately destroy all that is familiar and dear to us here at Tumblr and once the damage is done our fates will be sealed and we’ll be left to wither, not at all unlike the sites that fell into their hands during their prime and met an untimely death in spite of how much promise they held.
So what’s the very first thing the washed up shit lords over at Yahoo do after handing over a large sum of money to David Karp in their desperate attempt to be “cool” again and rise from the depths of obscurity? It insults the user base it now owns and will soon rely heavily on for the support needed to fuel the ad revenue they’ll eventually implement. And why did they do that, you ask? Because according to them there’s something wrong with being this upset over what is essentially a huge part of our personal life being taken from us and sold to corporate mongoloids made infamous by rendering businesses obsolete after failing to do exactly what they plan on doing to Tumblr.
What the fuck were you expecting, Yahoo? This was our safe haven and creative/emotional outlet, our place to express ourselves freely without shame in every way imaginable and form deep bonds with people that shared similar interests and beliefs. There is a very good reason a lot of people are upset and outraged with news breaking that their personal lives are being sold and personal liberties being sacrificed to benefit and support a failed abortion of a corporation with a less than satisfactory track record: because before today we WEREN’T under any threat of becoming the target audience of a greedy, deceitful, and corrupt business intending to use us to improve it’s tainted image and make a quick buck at our expense.
Surely I’m completely unaware of what I’m saying though, because your expert analysis of this site as a whole wrongfully depicted me as belonging to a demographic you described as, and I quote, “an overdramatic teenager obsessed with making 1D .gifs all day.” Sorry to burst your bubble, but I’m a 23 year old woman with a wide range of musical interests that excludes and actually despises 1D with a blog containing numerous text posts similar to those found in a diary and images that reflect bits and pieces of my heart, mind, body, and soul. So after passing an uneducated guess as a proven statistic and insulting the collective of Tumblr, who in the fuck do you think you are coming here and expecting sympathy and a willingness to adhere to your rules and help you out of a grave you dug yourselves into?
I also don’t think you want to skirt the topic of statistics either, judging by the poor taste displayed in that pathetic excuse of an article attacking and trivializing the very people that will decide the fate of Yahoo, it comes as no surprise to anyone that the damage done to your company was self-inflicted and seemingly well deserved, and the statistics showcasing your incredible failures over the years stand as irrefutable proof of that. Rather than throwing money at people with varying levels of success in an act of desperation only to kick dirt in their face when the deal is done, you swallow the cold hard truth that you’re extremely irrelevant, your 15 minutes passed a long time ago, you have no chance to recover from your multiple fuck-ups, and you’re solely to blame for it. We don’t want you here and we don’t owe you a god damned thing, you’ll be lucky if your attempts of using us to keep you afloat doesn’t bite you in the ass and we leave you to sink, drown, and come to terms with the reality that everything dies eventually and some things are better off dead. You reap what you sow, Yahoo. Most importantly, go fuck yourself.
