    I read about this as well – a couple of hours ago, actually. Frankly, I have close to zero compassion for the man. What exactly did he and his accomplices think would happen? Contacting the people on the island is forbidden for a reason, not least for the possibility that their bodies would be ill-equipped to handle any diseases envoys might carry. I hope that he didn’t, or he might have a veritable genocide on his hands…

    Also, his parents had the gall to "forgive" the Sentinelese (source: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-46300459).

    The notes from his diary actually make me dislike him even more than I already did.

    I generally don't hate anyone, or have anything against religion, but those who try to for theirs on others are reprehensible.

    I think it's funny that so many people dislike that guy.

    A veritable genocide...seriously? Not to devalue a human life, but 15 people is not a genocide.

    That island is all there is of that culture, so even if it's under 100 killing them all could be described as genocide.

    It is if there are only 15 people of that ethnicity.

    sad. while it's better this all ended with him being killed, than him bringing some sort of disease that wipes all 400 odd people out. reading his comments he doesn't seem like a bad guy albeit naive and dumb. it's a shame that he was able to find people willing to help him get there. the only ever outcome once he arrived was tragedy on some side.

    As of December 17, Tumblr is banning all adult/NSFW content. Link.

    The chaos is wonderful.

    Which they did because they got kicked from the app store because some people were posting kiddy porn on the site.

    Porn has got to be the overwhelming majority of Tumblr's traffic. This is just... precious. They'll bleed users by truckloads. I give them a year before the site shuts down or pulls a Playboy and quietly readmits porn to the site.

    Honestly, I can't see them readmitting it. Fundamentally, this whole thing is because they can't be fucked to do basic moderation and put down bots - if they'd rather stab themselves in the dick like this than try to develop that basic competency, why will they develop it a year from now?

    Even if they did readmit porn and develop a moderation platform, it'd be pointless. Why would users come back to a site that banned the very content that made it successful in the first place? Pretty much all the NSFW SFM/Blender artists have already moved to Newgrounds. Why would they come back knowing that they might have to go through this same bullshit again?

    I honestly didn't know that Tumblr still existed. I just thought they existed in memes, and that's it.

    At least now tumblr can return to its true purpose: 14 year olds arguing over which one has greater transgressions against minority group du jour

    There'll be another porn site made soon enough for them, I'm sure.
