Good luck offloading that sinking ship for anything more than a pittance.

Pornhub is thinking of buying Tumblr and bringing back the porn, erotica and other NSFW stuff that got nuked.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Could be a publicity stunt, didn't they offer to buy Vine in '16?

Yeah, saw this coming (who knew a site that wasn't making money would still not be making money after massively alienating their userbase...)

Don't think pornhub will follow through. Someone somewhere probably has some brilliant idea about what to do with all those tens or hundreds of millions of users? Not super optimistic.
