[liberationtech] Tumblr's lack of Encryption

I wanted to ask members for any tips on how to approach Tumblr.com, the
blogging platform, to request that they introduce default ssl/tls
encryption to at least protect usernames and passwords during logging on
and or for all user account activities. Like many other platforms Tumblr
offers useful options such as free mapping of a domain name, but having
no encryption makes it less attractive. 

As a newbie to 'liberationtech' I do hope this is an appropriate post. 

My background has been in engaging in rights based activism, mostly on
migrant and refugee rights. I am less 'visible' these days as a
consequence of getting my fingers burnt by making open Public interest
disclosures, after some reflection and time-out I have now gone back to
more anonymous forms of activism.

My interest in this list flows from the recent attention being given to
the Haystack Netowrk and specifically the Cultural Bytes blog post:

happens to be hosted on Tumblr!

One example of past collaborative work:
