Wordpress buys Tumblr

Unfortunately, it sounds like Verizon was only looking for a buyer who would maintain the pornography ban:

F/GO has made more money in America in one banner than Verizon did on this tumblr sale lmao

Sadly, the pornography ban still exists but at least now there might be some recourse.

People blame Verizon but it was really Yahoo's folly to buy it in the first place.

And the reason Yahoo couldn't make full use of Tumblr was because Yahoo itself isn't a good service with a dedicated userbase, while Facebook had no problem convincing people to link Instagram/Facebook accounts, which allowed it to cross reference user data for third party sale.

Verizon could have always sold tumblr to Pornhub, assuming Pornhub isn't joking when it offers to buy stuff (I don't think it is), but since they initiated the ban to begin with I'm 100% sure they wanted it maintained with the new buyer.

Possibly, but it's been noted that the pornography ban lead to a massive downtick in user traffic on tumblr.
