Because LJ has "decided" that having interests that are "illegal" is somehow a solicitation to break the law, or is not the "kind" of "community" that they want to have, I will not be updating this journal with anything but posts about the deletions, bigotry, and judgemental crap that is involved.

Quotes from LJ CEO Berkowitz on CNet:
"We did a review of our policies related to how we review those sites, those journals, and came up with the fact that we actually did have a number of journals up that we didn't think met our policies and didn't think they were appropriate to have up," Barak Berkowitz, chairman and chief executive of Six Apart, said in a telephone interview.

...

"Our decision here was not based on pure legal issues. It was based on what community we want to build and what we think is appropriate within that community and what's not."
--Barak Berkowitz, chairman and CEO, Six Apart


This kind of knee-jerk, bigoted, "sanitization" of the LJ environment by daddy-knows-best corporate jerks turns my stomach. The fact that they bowed down and kissed the ass of dominionist, "Joels Army" type fundamentalist scum like WfI is just appalling!

Saying fanfic containing torture of villians or underage sex is promoting torture and pedophilia is like saying murder mysteries are manuals for murder. Dumb.

FYI: October 5 - Day of Mass Resistance protests. If you figure you're on the list to disappear anyway, you might want to go.
