Scratch That With a Huge Letter X

Refer back to this post: Tips and Tricks For Tumblr Bloggers

♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠

The site – TumVue – gives an error message: 503 Service Unavailable. Another site - TumView – is working and doing what TumVue did!

Only TumView has advertisements that feature Adult Content.

Currently publishing four Tumblr blogs and images from my blogs are being captured by this site's "web interface". Have no problem with that. The display is visually appealing.

Do have a problem with the graphically explicit ads that are also being shown along with my blog content/images. There is no need for that!

* This smacks of something not only suspicious but pernicious and malicious. *

What a totally unnecessary irritation and annoyance!!

It's like somebody sat there and created useless dumb stuff for me to do WHEN I COULD BE DOING PRODUCTIVE WORK!!!

Now MY TIME has to be wasted contacting Tumblr Support Help Desk about this to see if there is anything they can do to stop it which is wasting their time too!!

This site has just hijacked your blogs! I would have thought Tumblr would be concerned at othes trading on their name. Hope you get it sorted

I was doing a paper about a various psychology course and I did check out Tumblr and I did not like it and when I finished that paper I cleared that out of my computer but every once in a while there would be a message advertisement that I just close and not even look at it.

I too hope it can be sorted out. Never had this happen before. Feel so clueless! (O.o)

I know Tumblr allows Adult Content. But you have to indicate that your blog is Adult Content. Actually when the first site started giving the error message, I sort of thought maybe the Tumblr folks did object. But now the site just has a similar name and there doesn't seem to be anything stopping the “interface”, I'm baffled. That's why I contacted the Tumblr Help Desk. I'm in “wait and see” mode right now. Meanwhile I'm still maintaining my blogs.

Tell me! I haven't a clue how to respond

That is most annoying. It sounds very suspicious, in that many people would not sign up if they knew this would happen, so they added it afterwards! emoticon :sad:

The fault is not with the Tumblr site owners. It is clearly the willful act of the TumView owner or owners. No worries. If what they are doing has malicious intent, they will get their “comeuppance”.

{ I love the word “comeuppance”, don't you? Heard it in a movie once and don't often find ways to use it in a sentence. But when the opportunity present itself, I seize the moment! :) }

Yes, "comeuppance"is a great word. I think it must be old, I think my grandmother used to use it.
