  Finally you can review tumblr's censorshipJan 07, 2019 9:19 PM PST | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:Months after letting loose an algorithm that started zapping posts it thought were inappropriate—without notifying the person who had posted them, possibly months or even years earlier—tumblr has finally added a "Review flagged posts" page to the user's Account page, where you can see all the posts you've made that tumblr thinks it doesn't like, and appeal them if you think they've been flagged incorrectly. It's kind of funny to see what their algorithm can consider "adult content," I guess. : P

How they did *not* have a review system like that in place when they rolled out their robo-flagging, I have no idea. They would have saved a lot of people—themselves included—a lot of trouble.
 
Well, better late than never, as they say. Their image recognition could still stand some improvement, though. ; ) Unless they think silhouettes are just too abstract to inflict upon the untutored minds of younger readers! (This calls for more art classes in grade schools! ^_^)
