Note to self, never let curiosity get the best of you when you wonder if something ACTUALLY happened with Yahoo. You’ll be spammed with so much stupidity that you’ll vomit.
this has been a PSA
Jesus fucking christ
This is exactly the kind of shit I was talking about. I had a rant some weeks ago about people ‘hiding’ comments in their tags, and the response was mainly two things: Either people did it just because they preferred it that way for whatever reason (which in the end is really their business), or this, which is something that until I made that post I had no idea about. I didn’t know this shit was a thing. I had no idea people actually posted shit like this, because it just seems so fucking unreal.
This is bullshit, and the person who posted this is bullshit by extension.
This is some fucked up elitist mentality that only some thoughts are “worthy” of being made. That if your response doesn’t live up to their standards then why the fuck are you posting it? Keep your mouth shut because what you have to say isn’t worth hearing! This of course is further ingrained by the use of excessive caps and emoticons in the original post suggesting that anyone who makes a response like that is a child or an idiot, because there’s no faster or lazier way to discredit the other side than to imitate them with fevered, emoticon-littered writing.
Well I say fuck that. I produce my own content (and I don’t mean compiling TV gifsets) and I want to see everything everyone has to say. Even if it’s just AAAA THIS SCARED ME or WOWOWOW THIS IS SUPER CUUUUTE WOW, seeing that kind of response means a lot to me. It means I evoked that kind of response. That’s very flattering! And for people to want to censor others because they think their thoughts aren’t important or worthwhile enough to be read, frankly, that’s disgusting. No one should be pressured into feeling like they have to shut up especially on a subject and medium like motherfucking Tumblr. It’s like telling someone “GET OFF MY POST”.
And I mean let’s think practically about this, too: It’s not like every time someone reblogs your post AND ADDS TEXT a man comes to your door and sits you down and reads it out loud off a telegram. What happens is that the little list that shows “so and so reblogged your post” has one additional line of text on it saying “AND ADDED: [COMMENT YOU DON’T THINK WAS WORTH YOUR TIME]”. I would say it takes one extra second to scroll past but the amount of time spent scrolling that additional line is so insignificant I couldn’t even measure it. Most people who address this spend way more time complaining about it than they ever would spend being inconvenienced by having to read what people thought of their post (god forbid)
So in summation this whole toxic, bullshit mentality of “Hey plebeians who have the privilege of looking at my stuff! Here’s how you are and are not allowed to respond to it!” is awful and so arrogant I almost didn’t believe it was real
If you want to sort of stash your thoughts away in tags, I can’t force you not to by any means
But you should never feel like you have to hide your thoughts because they’re not ‘good enough’.
Especially not here.
All in all Tumblr is a fun site, but people are actually DISCOURAGING others voicing their opinions and comments. DeviantART is slowly dying, and it’s pretty bad, because it’s one of the few sites left where you can communicate with words, instead of reactions gifs and Tumblr memes. I’ve seen people reblog things with their comments and anons sending messages to their ask-blogs akin to “Wow, why are you commenting everything you reblog, that is so annoying.” Why would you do that? This might be an interactive shiny picturebook to some people, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but especially artists really appreciate reblogs with comments. Those pictures you like so much COME FROM SOMEWHERE, you know. By all means, voiceless reblogs are nice too because they give you exposure, but if someone has the time to say something nice, then oh my god, don’t diss them because of that. This is a really terrible attitude to have.
I’ve considered making a reblog-blog just for original content and commenting on it, and stuff like this makes me want to do it more, just to spite people who are encouraging an internet culture where everything must be just scrolled past as fast as possible, without stopping to appreciate it.
I AM SO HAPPY, THANK YOU.
Reblogging because I’VE BEEN GRUMPYGROANING ABOUT THIS VERY THING WITH MY FRIEND FOR AGES. About how nobody seems to comment on anything anymore and just hides everything in tags, making artists have to check every single fucking reblog separately to see if there’s EVEN A TINY BIT OF FEEDBACK. Most of the time there isn’t any. IT’S REALLY RIDICULOUS AND IT BLOWS???? BECAUSE ARTISTS LIKE ME FUCKING LIVE OFF FEEDBACK. IT’S IMPORTANT TO THEM.
Even “dumb” comments like “WOW CUTE” take me and probably many others A LONG WAY.
Of course even though this may have come off sounding like that, the stuff I’m writing here isn’t to be accusatory towards people who choose not to comment. YOU ARE EXTREMELY FREE TO NOT COMMENT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO. Especially since I am also a shy butt who has trouble replying to things people write me because I never know what to reply and I become anxious as hell and bleughfb
THIS WHOLE THING IS DIRECTED AT PEOPLE WHO PURPOSEFULLY DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM COMMENTING. THAT’S GROSS AS HELL and i will pee in your eye if you do thatsklnvslk
ok sorry for being an asshole BUT THIS WHOLE THING HAS BEEN BUGGING ME FOREVER AND THE OP POST PISSED ME OFF CONSIDERABLY, I CAN’T LIE. Ugh.
PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS.
PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS FUCKING POST BECAUSE IT HAPPENS, FOLKS.
IT FUCKING HAPPENS. THIS ISN’T A PSA, ITS SOMETHING PROMOTING AN ELITIST CULTURE ON A SITE MEANT FOR SPEAKING YOUR FUCKING MIND AND POSTING GIFS.
As someone who speaks their mind in RL and on the net when I can(just not on Tumblr because to be frank, this site is atrocious at times because of THE OP’S FUCKING MESSAGE), this made me a bit mad, though it made me notice a bit more that people were doing what the OP was saying.
if someone wants to post a comment on something that they find awesome, or cute, or even gross, FUCK, JUST LET THEM. If they wanna post comments saying “XD This show, mai creys huehuehue”, JESUS FUCK, LET THEM, DON’T FUCKING TELL THEM TO HIDE IT IN TAGS BECAUSE THEY SHOULD DO THE THING CALLED SPEAKING THEIR MIND. ((Trust me, I sometimes put messages like “OHmygod what is air” or “Holy fucking christ this is amazing” so those are other examples of what people sometimes hide in tags.))
If they PREFER to put their message in tags, Ok, that’s fine, I have no qualms, but when there’s a ‘PSA’ telling them they should do it, that’s fucking wrong. I know some folks who put their post in tags, and that’s fine, but I’ve noticed a lot more putting their post in tags because of this shit. Fuck. The tags are used to FIND what the post is about usually, unless I’ve entered some PARALLEL TUMBLR UNIVERSE.
In short, this is NOT a Public Service Announcement. Its fucking brainwash. Don’t follow what the OP is saying if you don’t prefer to hide your post in tags, but if you prefer to do so NOT BECAUSE OF THIS BRAINWASH HOGWASH, then that’s fine. I have no qualms, because hey, a least you weren’t doing it because of some false-coated shit, you did it on your own accord.
Yeah, I’m done ranting now, I had to get my anger out there because OP is a sack of shit who needs a spanking. I never usually mean Ill-will on folks, but jesus fucking christ, if someone is gonna brainwash people, they deserve a bat to the face.
This artist makes amazing DR artwork that would almost look like screenshots from the anime. You can find more at @danronmemo!

I want this to be a fucking anime now. o-o
._. I’m scared. My grampa, a 64 year old man who sports a balding head of grey hair with pride, kiiiiinda came into my room and pretty much shouted that I was cosplaying ((though someone his age would be all “D8< WHAT THE FUCK IS COSPLAY, BLAH BLAH BLAH DRESSING FOR HALLOWEEN”. But no, this man knows fully what it is, and he even asks me about it.))
When he came in and did that, I had to instinctively cry out “No, no!”, which is habitual for me since I get startled easily and shout out the word ‘No’ when scared. XDD The event was short an he ended up leaving after laughing at my shocked face of looking like a terrified kitten. 8w8 gramps, why do you know of cosplay?
Me when I ever get near my fridge. o-O
((Yes I’ve read Dangan Ronpa and Super Dangan Ronpa 2, and yes I own both soundtracks. I’ve even played them both a while ago*a year ago*))

Fruit Roll Up Adventure 2
Undefined Pirouette Object
1 Can white frosting
1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 cups water
1 cup light corn syrup
3 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup water, or more as needed
15 drops red food coloring
3 drops blue food coloring
Prepare Red Velvet Cake Mix According to box, line cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners.
Divide cake batter between lined cupcake tins.
Bake according to box instructions. Let cool and frost cupcakes with white frosting.
Make the sugar glass. Mix 2 cups water, 1 cup corn syrup, white sugar, and cream of tartar in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Use a candy thermometer and boil sugar syrup until temperature reaches 300 degrees (hard ball), stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken as water evaporates. When sugar reaches 300 degrees, quickly pour onto a metal baking pan. Cool until completely hardened. Break into “shards” using a meat mallet.
Make the edible blood. Mix together 1/2 cup corn syrup and cornstarch in a large bowl. Slowly stir in the 1/4 cup of water, adding more if necessary, until the corn syrup mixture has thickened to the consistency of blood. Stir in the red and blue food coloring.
Stab each frosted cupcake with a few shards of broken sugar glass. Drizzle on drops of “blood” to complete the effect.

This feels like a Dangan Ronpa thing for some reason :3
