David Karp Explains Tumblr’s NSFW Censorship Policy

If you are on the prowl for some gratuitous porn on Tumblr, you may be in for some disappointment. But the baby has been thrown out along with the bathwater. After complaints from consumers regarding certain explicit porn sites on the set up, Tumblr did what it could to eradicate the annoying material.

Tumblr finally decided to get tough on smut. One of the ruses it used in its arsenal was to arrange for adult sites not to show up on the result pages. What that meant was that even if some obscene search engine entries were made, the content would simply not make it to your viewing screen. However, some ordinary sites have borne the brunt of this burden too. 

From the statements made by David Karp, the CEO at Tumblr it seems they are still working on it. Not all is well in Tumblr Town. Many people did get access to some pretty full frontal scenes by switching off the Safe Mode. The flaw is not entirely within Tumblr’s itself. The nature of the game is such that trying to censor somsome material and leaving out other benign matter is a lengthy and hectic process. It will be a living nightmare separating the good from the bad on Tumblr.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
