There are forces that will want to spoil this event/hashtag with protests ranging from complaining to the extreme.Our advice is the following:
If you see someone using the tags and they post something not related, click on ignore (or scroll right past them or block). If you see a blog (or account) that was created purposely to spam the tag, report them.
If you allow anonymous asks, you might want to take that off for the day. You might also want to disable “submits” so you don’t get pictures… or other things… that you didn’t ask for.
Also, do not talk about the blog(s) that are doing this. Don’t reblog posts about them. Don’t anger people. Basically, don’t give them ANY shine whatsoever. They just want to cause this chaos. People are going to hate regardless, so don’t let it stop you. The people who want to do this are in the minority, anyway.
We have volunteers that are willing to lend a hand to make sure the tags stay clear of explicit images and there’s a master list circulating to block known offenders beforehand.
Tumblr has a “block” feature and made it so that you can prevent those that want to harass you from interacting with your blog and it’s content. Be sure to utilize it if you feel unsafe. If you are participating on another platform, be sure to look into their blocking feature and harassment policies as well.
