*First and foremost, sorry for my absence. I've been in the hospital since the 21st trying to recover from pneumonia but I'm getting better! I may even get to go home tomorrow or early next week!
So the site that hosts my personal weight loss blog on Tumblr is considering banning blogs that promote/glorify eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, and things like that) and blogs that promote/glorify self-harm or self mutilation (such as cutting, overdosing, suicide). I would think this is a good thing, but many people are more concerned about freedom of speech instead of trying to help people. What do you all think? Would it be a good idea to stop things like this so that people can instead go get help instead of going to a blog site looking for "how-to's" or instructions on how to damage their bodies? What's your take on this?
