Auroara Leduc: We did it! 20,000 signatures in 3 days! Bravo to all the people that supported!

The fact that Tumblr is trying to hide all blogs with adult content and practically shun some blogs that actually do post quality art even though they do post NSFW sometimes is bad. I do understand porn and things like that are bad, but I think that Tumblr should give some people a chance, considering that some post/draw NSFW to make a living and can't do so if they're being blocked from all tags. Shunning people off of Tumblr is NOT THE ANSWER to getting rid of all of the porn. We gotta make Tumblr/Yahoo! Staff see this! Please try to support, the fate of some really great artists are in your hands!

Any sort of popularity helps! Reblogs, Tumblr posts, etc, etc. If you to make Tumblr post, though, tag them as 'stop the ban' or 'dont ban nsfw', please!

SUPER IMPORTANT EDIT!:

We did it, everyone! 20,000+ in about 2 and a half days! Bravo! And would you look at that! Tumblr's NSFW content rules are back to normal again! David Karp himself made a post about the situation, and you can find it here!: http://staff.tumblr.com/post/55906556378/all-weve-heard-from-a-bunch-of-you-who-are

Thank you so much for your support! I'm so very proud of all of you who signed this petition, and mailed in letters to tumblr staff, and everyone who participated in making Tumblr stop the ban! Bravo!

      Tumblr is a free way to express myself. If I can't do that, this website will stop being the difference between other blog sites.

      Tumblr is where I go when I need help with anything. If these blogs get banned, I'm done with Tumblr. I'll probably end up dead, to be honest. I can't afford therapy or medication to shove down my throat so I don't kill myself. Tumblr is where I release my emotions to get help in return.

      Because I have a NSFW and I would love to have followers and people who enjoy this kind of things. Yahoo should just give the Tumblr creator his money back if they are going to continue to do stuff like this behind people's back.

      I think that tumblr is a blog that the people feeling comortable to do what they want and what they like. Tumblr is famous for that, no prejudice. Let's people do what they love.
