It's not reportedly anymore.... BAM: Exclamation
An excerpt from the PR:
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same as will their mission to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve. Yahoo! will help Tumblr get even better, faster.

Adult Tumblrs Could Land Yahoo In A Legal Pinch

Marissa Mayer says she wants to "let Tumblr be Tumblr" after acquiring David Karp's microblogging service for $1.1 billion. But the bigger problem for Yahoo might be porn pages that don't reveal enough.
Not just the fact that it's there--11.4% of Tumblr's 200,000 most visited domains are adult; 16.6 percent of Tumblr traffic happens on adult blogs; and 22.37% of referral traffic from external sites comes from adult websites, according to a study by the SimilarGroup.

Don't ya think 1 billion is kinda steep for Tumblr? Sounds like yahoo is just trying to buy market share...but nobody freakin cares about yahoos or uses it....

Flickr was sold to Yahoo for only $35M in 2005. Think about it buddy.
