I think we should all mass email Tumblr to stop being so childish and butthurt over Missing e’s features being better than theirs. They’re making themselves look like stupid children too proud to admit they’ve done wrong, and it’s really starting to get annoying. If someone could draft up a nicely presented, yet subtly superior email on behalf of the Tumblr community that loves Missing e, that would be great. Something like…
Dear Tumblr, We just want our Dashboards to work, and since you’re not doing it right, we’ve had to go elsewhere. If you’re not going to fix all your broken crap, then at least stop being so butthurt that someone else is doing it for you. Why don’t you just stop being so proud and hire him already? He has clearly proven his worth. Sincerely,The Annoyed Tumblr Masses Who Love Missing e
Or something like that.

Bär: Dear friends and lovers of Missing e:

Hello. Thank you for sharing your concerns about the Missing E browser extension. We provide the Tumblr API in order to encourage a thriving ecosystem of applications. But, we must also ensure those applications don’t compromise the stability of Tumblr, the security of Tumblr data, or the safety and privacy of Tumblr users. To that end, all applications that use the Tumblr API are required to comply with an API License Agreement detailed at: Tumblr has given a great deal of thought to every statement in the API License Agreement. Many are there specifically to address the stability, security, safety, and privacy issues mentioned above. When an application is not complying with the agreement, Tumblr contacts the application developer and works with them to bring their application into compliance. That is what is happening in this case. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us. Seth —Tumblr
Effing ha. “Stabilty of Tumblr”? You can’t possible mean stable as in “not having the site shut down for 2 days” or “not having the site go down for several minutes everyday” or “making sure our users have all the features they want and that they’re working properly & efficiently”. And I know you’re DEFINITELY not working WITH Jeremy Cutler (Missing e creator) on the Missing e browser extension. You’re taking features he created and making shitty versions of them, pissing off your bloggers. I’m following the Missing e blog, so I would know. And I highly doubt you regret any inconvenience this may cause. Tumblr has had nothing but inconveniences since at least last year. And these ripped-off shitty versions of Missing e features are inconveniences at best.
