I know Tumblr is not email, or Twitter, but why make it so infuriating to communicate with others on Tumblr?
marksbirch created a note on a post of mine, and of course I can’t reply to it (see Notr). So I went to his blog and asked a question, which he answered. But of course I can’t then add a follow on question to that existing ask. Of course not. So I tried to ask him a follow on question in a new ask, with a link to a post. Got this:
Hmm. Of course you can’t put links in questions. Why would you want to do that?
So I tried to send him fan mail, thinking maybe I could put a link in that. Turns out you have to follow someone to send fan mail. So I followed him, and tried to send fan mail:
Ok. I give up.
