Tumblr bans anorexia blogs 

Last month, the company announced plans to change its content policy to exclude posts and blogs that promoted anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders, as well as those that advocated suicide or self-harm.

Tumblr told its users: “While we won’t allow blogs dedicated to triggering self-harm, we will not act against blogs engaged in discussion, support, encouragement, and documenting the experiences of those dealing with difficult conditions like anorexia, bulimia and other forms of self-injury.”

Tumblr worked with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), a US charity, to develop its policy.
