I'm kinda grossed out that the selective deleting of Tumblr blogs seems to have been done mainly for the benefit of Julia Allison, but I'm honestly not surprised and don't really care that much. I really like the concept behind Tumblr, the simplicity of its programming and all that, but somewhere along the line it turned into this really self-referential insular circle jerk that is thoroughly unappealing. Obviously you can use Tumblr in such a way that you never even see any of that stuff -- I'm sure many people who use Tumblr would have no idea what I'm even talking about here. But for a large subset of active blogs, the dialogue has started to resemble what the Gawker comments used to be like, back when you had to be specifically invited to comment. It's very...ick. So, while in principle I'm opposed to blog censorship, especially half-assed and incompetent censorship (see: my LJ tag), I am also in principle opposed to giving Julia Allison any attention at all AT ALL. So JUST STOP WRITING ABOUT HER. She is a completely inconsequential human being that no one outside of idiotic bloggers has even heard of. Just STOP.
