HEY I JUST HAD A STROKE OF GENIUS.
Tumblr will be here tomorrow.
When the government passes a law, they usually have it take effect a certain date. Usually the first of the new year. It gives employers/websites/ etc. or whomever is affected by the new law a certain amount of time to make sure that their business, or in our case, website, can be up to par with the law.
The law will more than likely not happen. But dont worry. We’ll be here in the morning. If anything, there will be a countdown to when Tumblr either dies or when Tumblr has to make significant changes to the website to stay ‘alive’.
SO. Do not panic! I think for now, Tumblr is safe.
Unless Im completely wrong, but honestly, I dont think I am. For bills that would be made into laws this big, having it take immediate effect would be disastrous. If the bill is made into a law, then there will more than likely be a “Effective As Of:” addition to it, so that websites like facebook and tumblr can edit their layouts accordingly. *nod*
Im so glad I paid attention in Politics now.
