Based on a true story.

this reminds me of a story that’s kind of an ongoing joke in my family. 
I’m half German, and my father’s side of the family is full blooded German. My father owns a business that deals with a lot of international calls, and during my early tween years he got a lot of business calls at all hours of the day and night from all over the world. 
Now, when i first met my best friends, I had them sleeping over at my house, and we were watching TV. Every few minutes the phone would ring, and our caller ID would project at the top of the television screen.

 Tumblr has always been one of the most

 right now: In making this latest decision, you
 have not made the site any safer, especially

 You were asked to do two things that many

 Getting rid of spam bots, and keeping the
