I often wonder what can be done to regulate the tags on Tumblr. While all promoted tags can have problems, many (like the “cars” tag) are trainwrecks. It isn’t just constant promotion of unsourced/uncredited work, it is also OFTEN promotion of self-sourcing 100% fake spam blogs.
With the above promoted post you have to keep in mind that it wasn’t tagged at all. So, an editor has to either follow the blog directly or they promoted it from a chain of blogs which STILL carries the source link. It is an easy thing to check but they couldn’t be bothered or just didn’t care. Aside from that, the photographer watermarked the image and unless they think “Mike Boldt” is a 15 year old girl named Ella who runs follow me i follow back, they clearly don’t care about content being sourced or credited.
While it can be tough for people to understand, the above blog of a “15 year old girl” is not an actual blog by a real person. follow-me-i-follow-back.tumblr.com simply IS NOT FROM A REAL PERSON as it makes automated posts. Blogs like this farm out automated posting to build an audience and then they are sold and renamed all while keeping the current followers. They are similar to all of those fake FB scams giving away iPhones, Ipads and Macs. Build an audience and history and sell it off to the top bidder.
Things like the above promotion are making things worse as they further the idea to users that things like the above blog are legit because the content was promoted.
Watching the new Top Gear and realized that Clarkson and May likely took time off because they are both pregnant.
SEBRING INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY
The course of the track is 3.7 miles (6.0 km) long. It is a seventeen-turn road course with long straights, several high-speed corners, and very technical slower corners….Sebring is renowned for its rough surface. The course still runs on old sections of World War II-era landing fields that were constructed of concrete sections with large seams. The transitions between sections are quite rough and often, sparks fly from the undercarriages of the cars as they traverse them. Much of the track has intentionally been left with its original concrete runway surface. The track surface has 3.0 miles (4.8 km) of asphalt and 0.7 miles (1.1 km) of concrete. Mario Andretti, a 3-time 12 Hours winner, said that one of the hardest parts about the original Sebring track was finding the track to begin with!
Note from Ron: Last year during the 12 Hours of Sebring we camped in those trees on the inside of ‘Fangio’ and it was amazing.
In the 1993 European GP Aryton Senna overtook 5 cars in less than 70 seconds, this is just one example of his tremendous skill.
