Sean sez:

One way or another, LiarTown will continue

woohoo! LiarTown was pretty much the only reason I ever found myself on Tumblr.

I didn’t even know it was tumblr-adjacent. I only ever saw his stuff here. It’s sad this will probably diminish his already small audience. I hope he doesn’t get discouraged.

I’ll miss Liartown, but it had been basically dormant for months.


#5

Is there a place where the Tumblr refugees have found as a new home yet? Seems like a pretty big userbase primed and ready to go at this point. There should be a bunch of sites vying for their content. Maybe even without some of the more annoying limitations of Tumblr, like the tiny maximum image sizes.

To paraphrase Dr. Malcolm, “Porn always finds a way”


#7

Personally I found the NSFW content of Liartown to be thoroughly off-putting, much as I liked the rest of it.

The appeal of attracting a large userbase would likely be strongly countered by the prospect of being accused of trafficking in underage porn.

It was really only a problem for Tumblr in that it got their app pulled from the app store, an app that shouldn’t have been necessary in the first place.
