Marco Arment is the lead developer of Tumblr, preferred “blogging” platform of copyright infringers and the backstabbing New York literary scene. (People later discovered that Twits were an even more efficient method of cyberbullying.) I gave it a whirl, but threw in the towel after realizing the following two facts, which I posed to Arment thus:

  • Why are the semantics and codebase of Tumblrs such shite?

  • Why don’t you have a nice easy export mechanism to services like Delicious?

Via top-posting, Arment decried my “tone” and refused to respond. “Tone” doesn’t fix code like DIV H3 DIV P.
