geez guys when disney bought marvel did they start putting the cinderella castle animation before every superhero movie. did the movies become any more censored.
stfu about yahoo (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Except Disney is also a giant movie making behemoth and doesn’t need Marvel to save itself. That was more merger than take over, so it’s not even the same thing. Yahoo—until it purchased Tumblr—had no real social format that was worth anything (I mean really, yahoo blogs?). Yahoo is also very well known for being gimmicky and an overwhelming amount of advertisements, needless links, and best of all, it’s Yahoo answers douchebaggery division. Yahoo has a long history of making things so utterly non-user friendly, overly gimmick-y, and pointless. Geocities ringing any bells?
So, yeah, in the world of business this is nothing new. Buy outs and take overs happen daily. But to expect the userbase—the foundation of Tumblr—NOT to have a reaction to it. That’s just dumb. Blacklist ‘yahoo’ and then there’s no problem on your dash.
We’ll see if any of these come true, but I strongly suspect a lot of them will. You don’t drop a billion dollars on something and not expect to make a return on that. There’s a game plan, and I’m sure it’s one that the users won’t like. :(
