Tumblr Removed From App Store Over Failure to Filter Out Child Pornography

Written by admin

What about web browsers?

Definitely not excusing their behaviour!! Just unsure about the logic.

This content is disgusting and actually makes the logic fail. But it's simple.

An example would be a parent, you can block apps based on content or can block built-in apps. Having rogue content like in this Tumblr situation makes the parental controls moot.

I can make all "courage" jokes I want want, but the fact Google, who will know about this content too but has chosen to leave the app up on their store says it all. At first glance Apple looks like the bad guy here for removing the app. But for me it's the right move.

We should remove safari too as you can find child pornography using that app!!

Tumblr is not a web browser, they're a website in control of their content (or at least tries to be)

this sort of argument is silly and makes no sense at all

Ban Safari. Safari can display a lot of things even worse than Tumblr.

They better remove Twitter and Facebook and every other social media platform. They also better remove Safari. You can find lots of bad things searching on Apple’s own Safari.
Tumblr and Pinterest is a scourge on the internet.

3-5 years ago if you reported some one for underage pornography it would be removed pretty quickly and you actually got a response from the mod that removed it thanking you for notifying them. Now you have to jump through hoops to report someone, never get a response, and it takes days or weeks for them to be banned, if they ever are. Since Tumblr was bought by Yahoo, who was bought by Verizon, the reporting and removing of illegal material has been horribly slow and inefficient. I'm glad Apple is doing this because Tumblr seems to need a huge kick to the head to make this a priority and no one else seems to carry enough weight to make them do anything about it.

The goal is to make the App Store safe for those using it. If Apple knows about this, it’s good they are doing something about it.

You know that Safari isn’t the one hosting that content on their servers right? Do you not understand how the internet works? There’s a reason that content hosting websites and internet browsers are extremely different.

To be clear, content providers are actually held responsible for what they house on their servers. If it’s illegal content, they can be held responsible. Apple made the right move.

Also, if child porn was found to be unfiltered on Facebook or Twitter, it’d be a much bigger story than this. Not all “bad things” you find is illegal content.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
