Browser Fingerprinting and the Online-Tracking Arms Race - IEEE Spectrum

Web advertisers are stealthily monitoring our browsing habits—even when we tell them not to.

Bell Labs researchers just broke the broadband Internet speed record. It is eight times faster than the previous record — and it was done over copper landlines.

Guess Verizon, et al, are going to have to keep up that copper network after all.

Could you put the cadaver tags (and similar squeamish things) behind the read more tag instead of requiring the use of a tumblr extension to block things? I'm kind of new to tumblr and don't have admin permission to add tumblr-based tools to a computer I use for work.

anatomicalart:

I’m afraid that’s not always possible for multiple reasons.

A lot of these NSFW posts are photosets, which to not able to be edited in that way.
I personally also do a lot of rebloging through the tumblr phone app, which does not allow for editing the ‘reed more’ option.
Finally, I would also like to remind followers that it is impossible for a blog this large to accommodate to all specific follower maintenance requests. We do our best where we can but we cannot always fufill such requests.
In this case, the reason being because; adding the ‘read more’ option to posts even where it is possible would affect the layout of our blog negatively towards those who do want references for such NSFW images. Users looking for these references would have to click every ‘read more’ option to before finding the specific image they are looking for. 

We at AnatomicalArt respect your request, I think it would benefit you and other users to download tag blocking extensions. (In your case by gaining admin permission). It would help you in the long term to avoid specific posts from other blogs too.

Thank you kindly for your concerns,
I apologise on behalf of the crew here that we cannot be of more assistance.
I do wish you the best of luck finding a solution to your dilemma.

Admin Bonzly

Here’s a solution: Washboard.ws. It’s a web-based way to blacklist tags on Tumblr, so there’s nothing to install. Works on all computers, browsers, and mobile devices. You will view your Tumblr Dashboard through the Washboard site.

The only problem I had when I used it — reblogging something opens a new window, and after saving the post, the new window remained open and went to my Dashboard at the main Tumblr site. Just have to be aware that after you reblog, you close that window to return to Washboard. (Check this, it’s been a few months since I used it.)

Also, Tumblr has a Safe Mode that filters out blogs flagged as NSFW. I don’t know if anatomicalart is flagged that way or not, but maybe it will help with other things.

Hope this is helpful!

Brilliant: Open Culture digs up the perfect Japanese word for our “guilt pile” of unread materials. Best approached with another untranslatable Eastern concept, the Chinese wu-wei.

I need this word. Is there one for unfinished art projects, too?
P.S. Is there a reason tsundoku shares a word part with tsunami, or is that just a bad English rendering?
