Re: Tumblr, a passage from Walter Scott’s diaries, excerpted in The Faber Book of Diaries (1987):

Nota Bene John Lockhart and Anne and I are to raise a society for the suppression of Albums. It is a most troublesome shape of mendicity – Sir, your autograph – a line of poetry – or a prose sentence among all the sprawling sonnets and blotted trumpery that dishonours these miscellanies – a man must have a good stomach that can swallow this botheration as a compliment.
