Right now, Tumblr has two options when reporting a blogger. These are "Spam" and "Harassment." There is no additional comment section.
These options are inadequate for demonstrating a specific violation of the community guidelines. Tumblr must develop a comprehensive method of reporting violators to the site's administrators. If this is beyond the capacity of the current team members working on this issue, perhaps more people can be hired or assigned to the task. This is not a trivial issue, and it is not under control at present. It is hazardous to individuals' mental and emotional health to allow violations to continue without warnings or punishments.
The categories of content that MUST be included in reporting are as outlined in the Tumblr Community Guidelines (as modified on 2012-03-22):
Harm to Minors
Promotion and Glorification of Self-Harm
Gore and Mutilation Content
Unflagged NSFW Blogs
Uploading Sexually Explicit Video
Non-Genuine Social Gesture Schemes
Impersonation, Stalking, or Harassment
It is necessary for the good of the Tumblr user community to develop a new, adequate method of reporting violations as soon as possible.
PLEASE change the current method of reporting blogs to allow for more specificity of violations.
