[10 images][LOL] Cloud USA blocked! Tumblr could not handle the Effect that is Rain.

Cloud cover by: Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

Dazed, confused, and trying to understand Tumblr’s problem. ^@@^

Imagine — you open up your Tumblr one day to see what folks have posted and to check your feed. Without warning, weird red and blue banners are in your face, screeching at you, announcing you’ve been FLAGGED for ADULT CONTENT.

This happened when I went on our Cloud USA Tumblr some months ago! Oh, it’s true!

Talk about confused, shocked, and awed — I’m always so careful, I couldn’t figure out what the heck we’d done. Panicked, I clicked and went looking at the posts in an effort to fix whatever the problem was. They were old fan art posts and Please Come Back, Mister posts, put up years ago. And in less than 10 seconds, I knew there would be no fixing them (not without Photoshop at least, bwahaha).

Tumblr was all up in arms over Rain’s delightful anatomy. That’s right, JiHoon — your butt got us in trouble!

And your chest.

And your chocolate abs, dude! Weez in trouble!

Okay, okay. I’ll admit the posts were a little on the saucy side, but adult content? Not! And how can you post about the man who is Rain without being on the saucy side anyway? Huh? The main ingredient of the Rain Effect is sauce. He doesn’t come without it.

Why had it taken years for these pics to trigger something? Why was anything triggered at all?

The more I looked at those posts, the more annoyed I became. I decided not to take them down. I was going to appeal.

I don’t remember my exact words to Tumblr. But I can give you the gist of it:

We don’t understand why this content has been flagged and blocked. With the exception of two images, Rain is FULLY CLOTHED. Which leads us to believe you’re zeroing in on his backside. What are we supposed to do about his butt? We can’t help that he was blessed by God. We are thankful but have no control over that. It is what it is. And since when does a bare chest contribute to the downfall of society? These posts aren’t hurting anyone, not even a kid who has no idea of the context. What the heck, dude?

Apparently, the Powers That Be agreed. A few days later, our content was unblocked.

Thank the heavens!

That Rain Effect is dangerous stuff, y’all. No one and nothing is immune! LOL

  2. Wow, good job standing your ground; good defense. You were absolutely right. There was nothing wrong or offensive about any of the photos. And there’s certainly nothing wrong with showing off that fine butt of his!

    • Thanks, Linda. 🙂

      And, I dare say, his feelings would be terribly hurt if we didn’t show it off. He worked too hard on that thing for no one to notice it! LOL^^
