Tumblr, you’re confusing

Tumblr sent me the below email this evening. I’m not really sure what post it was for because they deleted it, and for some reason they sent me a link to someone’s reblog of my post. The link goes to a “Post not found” page. So anyway, if you don’t like someone’s Tumblr post, accuse them of a copyright violation, and unless they know exactly which post you’re talking about, you’re home free.
