*snorts at the paranoia*  T.umblr.com is Tumblr's standard redirect domain, for anyone who didn't already know this - there's no fraudulently mimicking Tumblr whatsoever.  Take a look below:

https://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fdocument%2Fd%2Fe%2F2PACX-1vQFgug5Zkk1WH51qvpyABs6gN9Fi2qxSr4sy4NNzhyybOL0hOt_p7jlt5ndADHf5gfByj0AHSRHKbj-%2Fpub&t=OWM5MTc1ZDIwMGQ3NmMzNDM3NDRmNTQ3ZmUwMmI5MGQxM2UxNWI4YixUNnZuakVFSQ%3D%3D&b=t%3AFcgHwkwg28aO1qkOElbfdA&p=https%3A%2F%2Fyahoo-geddon.tumblr.com%2Fpost%2F189776040209%2Fyahoo-geddon-updated-12202019-update-to&m=1
The first part (t.umblr.com/redirect?z=) is redirecting to a google doc, just like the post said!  (All of the %3A%2F stuff are ways to represent characters like / in a URL when you can't use the actual / character.)  And if you continue looking through the link, you can see at the end that it has yahoo-geddon.tumblr.com, because that is indeed where it's redirecting from.  This is exactly what happens when you copy part of a Tumblr post and paste it somewhere else, which is precisely what Morgan did.  If you're in doubt, go to the Yahoo-Geddon Tumblr and you'll see the top post there has that link (which is where I copied the above link from, not the post here!).  A little bit of investigation would have proved there was no malicious or fraudulent action here.
