I unfollowed you because…

  1. You blog about mostly silly, un-substantial things
  2. You held me at arm’s length
  3. You didn’t give me a business referral
[N]ot to be too too too cynical but I know all the people I follow on Tumblr and all the people who follow me are united in one thing and one thing only: their ravenous enthusiasm for brands. “I came for the sense of a new community, one with a keen feel for the visual but with a passion for language, too,” they say, “but it’s the brands that keep me here. Sweet Christ I love brands. Let the mountains collapse into dust and the oceans all boil, but give me brands,” they cry in the night. I personally remember, as a child, pleading with my parents to let me interface with my favorite brands. And interface we did. With the brands. The glorious, glorious brands.

Look at the dumbth on Facebook

They put me down without a single clue about why I said it. Facebook reminds me a lot of what was said about AOL 15 years ago, but with some distinctions: people get too lazy to open up links in posts that go outside of Facebook and it makes people dumb.

If they’d have called me an anti-Semite, I’d have known that at least they read the post.

Enough Impotent Outrage

If you don’t post the name of the judge in whose court this was said in and the name of the attorney who said it, you’re just jacking people up with righteous indignation. It’s not much better than trolling. Same goes for a kid who you report being bullied or otherwise discriminated against and you don’t post contact information for the school principal and the members / trustees of the board of education of the district that school is in.

I don’t know why I have to scold Tumblr about this — it should be obvious. Don’t get mad, get active. Or better yet, get mad and tell the right people about it who can make a different for the person being afflicted with injustice.

Number 7: Fix the “read more” tag to work when written by hand in HTML so you don’t fill up other users dashboards with long text posts.
