Enforcing Manners, Tumblr Shuts Down 5 Blogs

Lede Blog – “In a blog post written late Tuesday night, David Karp, the founder of the blogging platform Tumblr, sought to better explain the company’s sudden change in its content policy and its decision to shut down five blogs on Monday for violating its new ban on blogs dedicated to making fun of other bloggers.”

    I believe enforcing manners is a good thing. I see so much snarking, even on “Professional” library blogs that it makes me crazy.

    If you don’t like what someone has to say, then ignore them…although I have been guilty of purposely & successfully baiting my detractors on my blog!

    But to gang up on someone because you don’t like them is no different than playground bullying. …maybe those detractors just need to get a life.
