Microblogging and social networking website Tumblr's decision to ban all the adult content from its platform has been met with online mockery and memes.

Last month, the platform came under fire after child sexual abuse material was found on the platform and Tumblr saw its iOS application temporarily removed from Apple devices and the App Store.

The new policy will be enforced on December 17, giving users who host unwanted explicit content an opportunity to take their imagery elsewhere, according to chief executive Jeff D'Onofrio.

"There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content," D'Onofrio said in a blog post.

"We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community."

"Posts that contain adult content will no longer be allowed on Tumblr, and we've updated our Community Guidelines to reflect this policy change," D'Onofrio said.

While Tumblr's heart was in right place, many NSFW content lovers felt that the blanket ban of adult content would take away the "fun" and "shock value" from Tumblr's timeline.

Tumblr's crackdown on porn is already hitting the seemingly innocent content on its site.
