Fleeting Memory

2013-05-19 22:19:51.859664+00 by petronius 1 comments

News reports say the board of Yahoo will meet Sunday night to ratify the purchase of Tumblr for some $1.1 billion. However, the signs were already out. Over on Erosblog they've been noting that all adult Tumblr sites have disappeared from Google and other search engines. Apparently tumblr inserted a script in all such sites to shoo off search indexing robots and make them harder to find. Speculation is that they were starting to clean out the property before Yahoo showed up. If you have NSFW material over yonder, back it up before Yahoo erases it.

Well, guess Yahoo's gonna kill another cool property. Sigh.
