A popular “creator” internet platform called ‘OnlyFans’, which has rocketed in popularity worldwide among millions of fans of creator-produced porn, made a shocking announcement this week.  Starting October 1, porn content will be banned.  There are currently an astounding 2 million content producers offering their, um, wares on OnlyFans, and the most popular among them have made huge multi-million dollar incomes.  Analysts were quick to point out the similarities to a porn ban by Yahoo!-owned ‘Tumblr’, a site that in 2018 that had over 520 million monthly visitors. Tumblr’s subsequent traffic decline was swift and unforgiving.  Tumblr became a shell of its former self and relatively worthless.  Yahoo! bought Tumblr in May of 2013 for $1.1 billion, saying it “promises not to screw it up.”  That promise was not kept.  In May of 2019, Tumblr was sold to Automattic (the owner of WordPress) for…get ready for it…$3 million.  In other words, a 99.7% loss.
