Really, REALLY, thrilled about this.
In a post on its staff blog, Tumblr defended the decision to set restrictions for acceptable content stating, “We are deeply committed to supporting and defending our users’ freedom of speech, but we do draw some limits.”
For the paranoid, the Tumblr post also included a disclaimer on joking, noting that the ban
“…is intended only to reach those blogs that cross the line into active promotion or glorification.
For example, joking that you need to starve yourself after Thanksgiving or that you wanted to kill yourself after a humiliating date is fine, but recommending techniques for self-starvation or self-mutilation is not.”
