TFW you discover the setting on Tumblr - which defaults to ON - that lets Tumblr add their affiliate code to links you post, so they make money when you link to (say) a product on Amazon or Etsy.
@noelle I hope tumblr dies now
@Gargron i'll be surprised if it doesn't given the huge stigma against it now
like i've never seen tumblr get so much shit in my life
Burn it down.
@noelle Always read the fine print!
@noelle burn tumblr to the ground
@noelle on the plus side they don't override your own affiliate code, and I'd rather see that sort of natural advertising make them money than the increasingly-shitty "sponsored content" they insert.
@noelle is it entirely client side validated, and thus overrideable by mildly techie people, though?
@metapianycist Well, you can just turn the setting off. ;)
@noelle lmaooo holy shit that's scummy
@noelle that's sneaky. :O
