It would seem that Tumblr's moderation bot is on the fritz. People are complaining that regular ol' pet videos and pictures of their kids are being removed because they are "sexually explicit."

In the past three weeks all of his posts were pulled from the platform, and Cornwall received an automated message which stated Tumblr considered them "sexually explicit." "What my wife and I find most upsetting is that a Tumblr bot or a troll is marking videos of our children as sexually explicit," Cornwall told Gizmodo over email. "It has made us rethink the whole Internet sharing thing."
