Just received this from tumblr, with no precise explanation as to how I’ve infringed copyright - no specific incident, no specific example, nothing.
tumblr is based in America, allegedly the land of the brave and the home of the free.
Also the land of Micky Mouse.
And Ferguson, Missouri.
tumblr management are behaving like the Police and National Guard in Ferguson, Missouri.
Yeah, *best* to you too.
