I’ve always shown up before in site-wide searches, and have meticulously and accurately tagged my posts from the start. It’s fairly obvious, and exceedingly lame that the content I’ve created and shared for the past year doesn’t matter because of my choice of username.
If I change my username all reblogs and outside links will be broken, so either way tumblr has made this site effectively web 1.0. Let this be a lesson: don’t bother posting cool interesting new things, political news, beautiful graphic design, hot new music, famous art and artists, or engaging photography if your username doesn’t pass the kindergarten “Ooooh! You said a swear I’m telling!” test for what’s acceptable on the internet.
