A Public Service Announcement from Public Collectors
The following is from a message that I sent someone on Tumblr this morning, after seeing their avatar in the Biggest Fans section of my Activity page for the past few days:
"Hey, I’m not sure how else to contact you so I hope this finds the right reader. I am glad that you like so many posts on my Public Collectors Tumblr. In fact, you have clicked the heart icon so many times, that for days now your avatar and blog name have appeared as one of my four biggest fans. But every time I look at the activity on my page, I have to see your avatar of a photo of your engorged penis. Having a NSFW blog is cool and all, but using an explicit photo for an avatar, which I have to see even though I don’t follow you is—literally—a dick move. If you want your avatar to be a cock, okay, and again, thanks for your interest in my work, but maybe you can try unfollowing me?"
This user is no longer following me, but for the sake of others, if you use Tumblr and know how it works, please consider using an avatar that isn’t a photo of your genitals? It’s aggressive, obnoxious, and just a really shitty way to be. Thanks.
