I don't know. I'd have to agree with Tumblr on this one. Especially when you felt the need to fight against it and not only tell them off by posting the notice, but then repost the picture too? Yep, totally justifiable. I'm sure 40-year-old you won't look back on this and shake your head in disbelief at how immature you were. I don't feel you need to respond to this, but if you're going to act like a child yourself, someone is going to call you on it.
Sorry, grandpa. I’ll be sure to post my thesis papers on the civil war from now on.
If you’re going to “police the internet” its a slippery slope from, say, posting sophomoric pictures of a baby that I found on 4Chan to, say, removing the anti-Semitic / racisit hate speech that I can find on tumblr. There’s all kinds of people on here. If you’re going to police me for posting a picture of a baby with a (badly drawn) dick drawn on its face why dont you police the Vice tumblr for linking to shit you find offensive, too? Or some right-wing hate speech troll blog? Or would that be too difficult and you’d rather fry the small fish? You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
Your move, man. If you want to get all fucking Atticus Finch on me for posting a stupid picture how about you use your newfound social-justice-warrior pants and go after the big fish, too? Do something that really fucking matters. Oh. Wait. That might actually take effort on your part rather than writing me a 60 word wankagraph telling me off for being “childish.”
