Bye Bye BDSMLR
Latest fuckup: feed offers an endless list of all likes and follows since joining. So after a while you don't see any more images, just who liked or reblogged stuff. This shit's been going on for a year now, one mess after another, they keep telling us it's getting sorted but in fact it's getting worse and worse. And those ads are totally unacceptable. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with it. I don't much like newtumbl but at least it works. So I've deleted my account here. Before the new owners took over it was good here. Now it feels like they don't give two monkeys' fucks as long as they can make some cash off the site. Very sad.
Actually no, I hadn't. Tbh I hadn't thought of doing that, there hadn't been any need for it. This latest shit only came up yesterday. Those settings suck anyway, like, if you set gifs not be be displayed automatically, makes no difference. If you switch off endless scroll, half the posts disappear. It's all just one ongoing mess. I've had it.
I really don't blame you, this site is a total stuff up and has been since the "new team" acquired it. I am still rescuing posts from my blog (kinkyariella) which is nightmare in itself. As soon as I have finished I will delete my account. There is little new stuff being posted anyway. Most of the serious posters have departed for stable sites. Only those who are unable to adjust to change seem to remain or those with some blind faith that this mob will somehow fix things.
newTumblr is not perfect but it has most of what anyone needs and it works. It even has chatrooms for those who want that. Many of the posters from here are there now.
Almost any activity you carry out on BDSMLR results in a redirect to some dodgy site, every supposed "fix" has made things worse and The Munch blog is just endless platitudes and to borrow from Shakespeare's Macbeth, "It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing"
They may not be idiots. But they're totally incompetent. Or they just don't give a fuck. Themunch is full of job ads now. I don't think I'd want to work for an outfit like that. I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw a rat. Sorry, but that's how I feel, given the obvious bull they've been telling us for months.
There are rumors they are trashing the site purposefully so they can bring back the insane and wrong content it used to have during the tumblr days of glory, when bdsmlr was nothing less than a shit show, if you know what I mean (very wrong content).
And if this is the case, then I am most glad I left already, and I don't think the site is worth of caring the bdsm community name, mixing us with that crap is unfair for the majority.
Still very pissed many files posted are broken because from time to time I come to check so I can get them back and Nope, not a single video.
