There are blogs/users with inactive blogs who are holding up URLs for everyone else to use. People have resorted to hyphen glitching a URL just to have one that they desire because it's usually taken by a blog with 2 posts and last post was usually made 2 years ago.
Not only would this benefit Tumblr by clearing up some 'dead space' on their servers but would also increase population morale and make the tumblr experience more enjoyable, while giving users a slightly more 'personal touch' over their choice of URL; rather than having to substitute letters and insert hyphens.
Recently, I reported a URL that was legitimately creating spam posts, this blog was then 'suspended'. Tumblr claims in their ToS (Terms of Service) that they will suspend or terminate any 'subscriber' who solicits in spam or malicious content.
What would be the purpose of suspending a spam blog or one of those "Tumblr IQ Survey" blogs? Delete it, and release the URL to be used by the community.
