    Well, I've never used Tumblr, but it's about to become even less cool than it currently is...

    Oh god please no. I will hate Yahoo even more if they do this. Definitely NOT COOL! First they force me to accept an agreement which allows them to scan my emails so they can sell it to advertisers! Which led to the lengthy process of switching over to another email provider and ditching Yahoo completely. And now they're going to take over my Tumblr page? If I could sware on this site you would see a very creative paragraph after this one...

    Tumblr is currently very helpful in the design industry, it works well because the staff have created a very informal and simplistic site.
    Yahoo wouldn't be helping tumblr they would only be getting it to prove they still exist an in doing so complicating Tumblr and preventing it from working properly like they do with everything!

    Re-write of the title needed. The use of the word "again" implies Yahoo cool once upon a time.

    That's why it says "Cool again". Not Cool again. It doesn't actually imply they were cool. Sorry not trying to be a dick. Just sayin...

    Yahoo buy Tumblr. Everyone stops using Tumblr. Old tumblr peoples set up new social-blog site. Everyone uses that.

    The act of trying to be cool is not cool.

    That's what's really cool."
